  • are you eating fruit loops and no I am not being a smart ass I don't eat them because that is what they do to my stool though if you are worried about it a lot call your doc in the morning.

  • Have you drank any purple colored drinks in the last couple days? Gatorade or anything grape flavored with a purple color? Those can cause green poops!
