What’s That Sound? It’s Borborygmus.
You were in a rush this morning and you had to skip breakfast. Now you're delayed getting lunch, and you feel that familiar rumbling in your stomach. Then you hear it: the low growl of a distant thunder storm emitting from your belly.
We all know the feeling, and even the sound. But do you know its name? I'm about to make your day. It's Borborygmus (or borborygmi for plural rumblings)!
Bor-buh-RIG-mus. Merry Christmas! Now you can describe all those hangry rumbles!
