Dear Anonymous,
It could just be a chemical reaction to something you ate ( like something with iron or leafy vegetables) or the colour of the bile in your bowel did not have chance to change to brown if your stool passed through the intestines fast. If you don't feel sick - don't worry. If the stool is green and slimey, smells bad and has streaks of blood in it and you feel sick and have cramps, it could be due to an infection and you should see a dr.
