Yesterday in class my stomach growled for literally about 15 seconds.

It’s a small class, and we all sit in a circle, and my stomach had been just quiet enough that I was able to hope that no one had noticed.

“Was that your STOMACH?” my friend then turned and loudly asked.

Everyone laughed.

“Yeah,” I said. “I think so. I mean, it was going on so long even I was beginning to wonder if it could be my own stomach. But yes, yes it was.”
