"Teatoxing" Isn't As Glamorous As It Looks On Instagram

Because, guess what, it involves poop.

Posted on

Many of my favorite celebrities have endorsed teatox programs on their Instagrams.

I'm easily swayed by words like, "fit," and "skinny," and "mildly diarrhetic."

The night tea promised to provide a gentle cleanse, detoxifying major organs and eliminating water weight and possibly evil spirits.

The directions said to steep the cleansing night tea for no more than two minutes, but I got a little distracted ...

What started as partly cloudy quickly escalated to a flash flood. We're talking mud slides, people. The worst part was that I had a bunch of things I absolutely needed to do that day.

I'll spare you details, but I thought I might have Ebola for a sec.

... And a $50 Groupon for yoga classes that was about to expire.

Clenching my buttcheeks for a full hour actually turned out to be a great workout, so maybe the teatox works in mysterious ways.

I'm just thankful I didn't have anything super important to do, like a job interview ...

Guess I can cross "not soiling myself in public" off the skill section of my resume.

And I wish the moral of the story is that you are beautiful and you should never drink diarrhetic beverages in order to look Instagram-famous.

But the real moral of this story is READ THE DIRECTIONS.

Because three extra minutes of steeping can be the differences between being happy and being poisoned.

There is a silver lining: now, when I see photos of celebrities posing with their teatox, I don't wonder how they got so skinny. I wonder about the state of their bowels.

And I laugh at them, because if I don't laugh, I'll go crazy. And we all know crazy people never have nice abs.
