👁‍🗨 Sneakpoop 💩 5/27/21

This morning I desperately had to shit. At first I wasn’t sure I could make it this far, So I checked numerous containers to see if there was one I could use to shit in the apartment. Without containers, I put on my wrap skirt, tank, large hoodie, and scarf.

Upon arrival I checked the nearest tree with some mulch at the base. That turned out to be the fifth tree from the south end of the eucalyptus grove.

Unloading the poop, I felt tender as the pressure of a fair amount of mass leaving my body was consuming my attention. The shit was brief.
Afterwards, I covered the shit with woodchips from the nearby pile and sat bare-cheeked on the nearby dry grass, locationally wiping my butt with dry grass, leaves and sticks. Eventually I checked with my finger and smudged it in the dirt.

Seeds that may be in this poo: loquat, kiwi, raspberry, strawberry, Leatherleaf Mahonia, date, watermelon (unlikely, as it was just eaten this morning).


Leatherleaf Mahonia

The Leatherleaf Mahonia berries has a tart, sweet flavored purple juice.

It is part of the Barberry family, so its bark and roots contain berberine, a chemical that research has indicated is a potentially effective treatment for COVID-19.
