I think I do this one way too much... "You absentmindedly feel your bag to see if it needs emptying, regardless of your surroundings."

You know when you're an ostomate when....

You get home to find the parcel on your stoop has been obviously opened and re-sealed, but not stolen.

Oh, I'm sorry Mr. or Ms. Porch Pirate, belly bags not quite what you were expecting? No Xbox for you today my friend!

I now have my supplies delivered to my office ....

I've often wondered if that has happened to anyone and now I know! Beggars belief, but at least they didn't steal them!
