"Do you like me" stands out to me as possibly the most unasked-but-interested-in question. Romantically, sexually, platonically, whether strangers are impressed, as a meme template, etc.

Asking someone if they eat with their mouth. It's kind of implied, usually.

My mom is a nurse and has an in-color sheet of this scale printed out over her toiletΒ

I love that. πŸ˜‚

I've known about it for years but hadn't thought of it till it came up in conversation the other day. My partner works as aΒ communications specialist at a hospital and the other day he had to help run a conference that was primarily focussed on research in the field of gastroenterology. At one point someone doing a presentation brought up a slide with the Bristol stool scale on it. My partner was telling me about it later (I love grossing him out by talking about poo, so he figured I'd want to hear about some of the conference highlights lol), and I instantly remembered I already knewΒ about it. Which didn't surprise him in the least.

You'd have to ask Carl Spackler.

Since one-third of my colon was snipped off during cancer surgery, with various disgusting consequences, I was interested in the Bristol chart.  I do very heartily wish I had not googled it, especially while I was eating some soup.  The illustrations and the descriptions given the various types -- "like a smooth, soft sausage or snake" -- "mushy consistency with ragged edges" -- 🀒🀒🀒

I bear no responsibility for what people feel inspired to google based on my posts.

Β 

I think 'snake' is my favourite descriptor... 🐍

Β 

I've started asking for daily Bristol stool scale reports because I thought it could be a new level of intimate personal connection, butΒ someoneΒ thinks that's going too far.

When you earlier mentioned remembering you knew about it, I thought "Wait, don't Ceebs and Snao already text each other their Bristol stool numbers?" And after some thought I realized I was thinking of two other people I knew :P

Β 

Edited to add: I'm pretty sure Snao is not who you're referring to above, but Snao is who I thought you had the habit with

Lol. Nah, I haven't had to work on Snao to get them accustomed to poo talk. Seems to come naturally. πŸ˜‚

Tele, on the other hand... well, he's getting there. Bristol stool scale numbers areΒ apparently TMI, but I've got him to play theΒ 'rate your last poo on a scale of 1 to 10' game. So every day I ask him what his poo score is for the day. Just a number, no details necessary. I've broken his spirit enough at this point that he willingly plays along. πŸ˜‚

One that I don't ask at work all the time: "Why don't you ask for things one at a time instead of expecting me to get everything simultaneously?"

Oh, you kidding? I trained people to ask me for everything they want all at once instead of making me stop what I'm doing over and over and over.

Has karma finally come for Lauren Boebert? Somehow, I didn't think a bipartisan compromisingΒ position on inflation was supposed to look like....errr... that. On the other hand, there's enough material for double entendres to lastΒ well through the 2024 elections. Too bad Mystery Science Theater 3000 isn't still on the air on the Ole Satellite of Love.

I'm not very good at multitasking. I do things best in a linear way.

Same here, but I don't want what I'm singletasking on to be repeatedly interrupted by people asking to add tasks to my linear list.

Β 

If they could catch me when I just happen to be in between tasks, no problem, but that never happens.

Β 

I always say, there's no such thing as multitasking. It's really just singletasking in front of other people.

Oh wow, you're able to follow a linear list? Wild.
