: Deserted Island: Borborygmi
Jan 4, 2006

Borborygmi is a scientific term for your stomach’s growling noises. The reason your stomach makes that sound is actually because it’s empty, your stomach tries to squeeze together to digest food but there is nothing there but gasses and digestive juice. Grrggllee!

It’s funny when your stomach makes a really loud noise that everyone in the room hears. It’s not like other noises you can control, it’s like its own little person with a voice trying to be heard. You feel partly responsible but on the other hand, it’s not like you chose to make this funny noise. I usually try to back my stomach growls up with a “so there” or “I’m 100% behind him on this topic”, then I usually go get something to eat.
