Sitting on the Throne

I don't know if this is culture-specific, but sometimes, we call that seat that you find in most homes in the restroom to be the throne. So, whenever a person defecates, in a sense, he or she is sitting on the throne.

I guess by this point, you will know that this entry is about defecation. So, if you are one of those people who shirk at this kind of topic, then click that red button at the upper right corner.

Otherwise, you can proceed. You have been warned.

I just find it absurd why people sometimes do not want to talk about this topic, but come to think of it, it is a bodily function. It is one of the things that we do that defines our being human. If we did not defecate, then we wouldn't be humans. Why be silent about it?

Anyway, back to defecation. I am getting the idea that my routine of defecation is slowly changing. I used to do it once a day. Every morning, defecation is part of my morning ritual. It is one of the things that I do before going out of the house.

However, it seems that the number of days that I defecate more than once is increasing. I don't know why. It's not that I am eating spoiled food. Maybe, it is the weather. I haven't changed my diet radically. I don't know.

Maybe Freud is haunting me. Making me pay for my adolescent days of anal phobia.

Oh well, what do I know. At least I have a new photo series now, since all of my Quito pictures have been exhibited already, I started the new series from my New York City collection. And for now, let me start with the lady herself. I wonder how long she has been standing there, without defecating of course.
