Being an ostomate is...

Am feeling in a bit of a silly mood and thought I might start a thread looking at the funnier side of being an ostomate. Thought we could come up with one-liners to laugh about the quirks of life with a stoma.

To get the ball rolling:

Being an ostomate is...

...cleaning the poop from between your toes when you dared to shower without a pouch!
Oh god - the number of times I showered without a pouch, towelled down, not realised there was poop in the towel and nearly dried my hair with it ....
Being an ostomate is living on the edge!!!!
