While reminiscing about not having a gallbladder anymore, the best idea (in a loooooong time – two days) came to my head. There has to be a way that I can pay homage to my body and the millions of gallbladder-less people out there. Not only that, but educate those who still have gallbladders what my life is like now (sans-gallbladder – stay with me here, gosh).
We all know that blogging has become a VERY popular thing (not to mention who might be named people of the year). We also know that those who blog regularly (sounds dirty... it's not, I assure you) (well, I guess it could be) need to have access to their blogs 24-7. So God created MoBlogs – or mobile-blogs.
To MoBlog, all you need is a text-messaging-capable cell phone. You send a message to a particular email address and – DING – the message gets posted to a site. Cool concept, eh?
Still with me? Okay, so how does this fit in with me and my non-gallbladder-having-self? Well, since I had the surgery, I've experienced what many gallbladder-less having folk experience... the sometimes-sudden urge to haul ass to a toilet so that they can relieve themselves. [You see, without a gallbladder, fatty substances aren't quite broken down like they used to be. Which results in a mess, sometimes. NOTE: If you're new to not having a gallbladder, make sure you're always around a clean restroom (hell, any restroom) for a while after you eat... you never know.]
Here's the idea. I create a MoBlog dedicated to informing people that I'm, once again, on the toilet somewhere because of something I ate. I could let you know where I ate, what I ate, and how long it took to cleanse my system. And once it became popular, I could have other contributors, too. All of our posts could contribute to some weird coffee-table book or a "beware" list of sorts. I'm sure I could win a Bloggie with it.
Or... not. Sorry if I sicked you out. I'll shut-up now.
