Bah. At the same time that the laxative is starting to kick in, an entirely unrelated set of nearby abdominal muscles is also going into spasm. Mother Nature, you are a nuisance sometimes. One "organ recital" by itself would have been quite enough for one day; I really don't need two different parts of my innards to perform a duet.
Gentlemen who might read this paragraph, be glad you're gents and won't ever have to deal with this particular combination of symptoms.
