Colostomy Bag Man
Little is known about who Colostomy Bag Man really was. Only that sometimes you would spot him floating down the James River, but most of the time he was hanging out at the hospital where he felt most comfortable.

I remember the first time I saw Colostomy Bag Man. I was at the hospital for a doctor’s appointment. I don’t know why but when I entered the lobby my eyes where immediately drawn towards him. He was sitting there wearing his shades and bandana reading the paper with a little smirk on his face. I just couldn’t figure him out.

I saw him occasionally throughout the years usually in the hospital lobby. I finally got a chance to talk with him one day as I was waiting for my appointment. He asked which doctor I was seeing and if I liked hospitals, small talk mostly. The nurse called my name; I got up and started walking to the back. He stopped me and said, “You can polish a turd but.” I responded “But its still a turd.” He gave me a nod and that was the last time I saw him.
