A Word From Our Sponsor
As a pharmacist, I dealt with all sorts of people with digestive issues. Through the years I counseled people on various problems like indigestion, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, and other maladies of the gastrointestinal tract. Depending on the problem, remedies were suggested.
Products like Tums and Prilosec for heartburn; products like Ex-Lax and Miralax for constipation, and products like Imodium for diarrhea, Emetrol for nausea and vomiting, and the ubiquitous Pepto-Bismol used for everything.
The newest category is probiotics, which helps restore good bacteria to the gut, specifically the large intestine or colon. Thus, probiotics could be classified as colon-aids.

This week’s prompt over at Carrot Ranch was to be about colonnades. Ninety-nine words (no more, no less) only, and to follow where the prompt leads. I have to say that I took it in a different direction than what might be expected. Blame my muse who is in a fickle mood.
