The Proclamation of the Emancipation of the Constipation

No, this is not a political or legal piece. It is indeed, a piece relating to my 8-year-old son's first experience (that he can remember) with a temporary intestinal problem that has been referred to as dense poop. (I ask myself why I have been writing about poop so much these days...
