    Today I was on my final lawn which is about 5 to 10 minutes away from my house, and all of a sudden my stomach started to hurt. It hit me like a ton of bricks, more like ten tons of bricks. This wasn't something I could hold off either...my stomach was gargling and I didn't know what to do. I wasn't gonna use their restroom, and I couldnt go in the backyard cuz they were at home. I didn't think I would have enough time to make it home( thought I might have a leak on the way home lol) Im talking this was bad and I knew I had to do something. I acted quickly and moved all of my equipment into their backyard since I dont have a trailer and jumped in my truck. I sped off as fast as I could to a recreation center a couple miles away. I seriously thought I was going to crap my pants in the truck and I couldnt even sit down. I literally ran into the rec center restroom and made it just in time. Anyways...the lawn took a little longer than expected. Anything like this ever happen to yall when you mow? I think I need to invest in some depends.

    Yeah I have that happen to me once and a while. The kind where it hits you all of a sudden and its like a sharp pain in your stomach? You end up looking like the Pepto-Bismol commercial. I finally figured out what caused it for me, garlic. I cannot eat anything with garlic or we are going to have some problems.

    HAHA Exactly! It hit me so hard that I stopped in the middle of the lawn and couldnt move. I bet if anybody saw the look on my face then saw me running to the truck they found it funny

    capuccino (think I butchered the spelling on that one) and the jarring motions of plowing do it to me everytime. Glad I figured it out before it was too late.
