One of the Yuckiest Procedures Ever

What am I talking about? A colonoscopy. If you've never had one, believe me, it's not something to look forward to.

Actually, it's the day before that's worse. You have to drink what seems like gallons of the most horrible tasting goop in history. It's slimey and thicker than water. All this must be done between 3 and 7. Meanwhile you can't eat anything solid. Of course once you start the drinking ritual, there's no time for anything else--because you'll be drinking and hanging around the bathroom, if you haven't become permanently planted there.

Once you get to the hospital on the day of the big event, guess what? Now you are treated to two enemas. Again, you become well acquainted with a toilet.

You'll be hooked up to an IV and given some kind of happy juice that makes you not care too much about what's going on. I understand some people actually go to sleep. I've never been so fortunate. Instead I get to watch what's going on as the camera makes a trip through my lower intestines and the doctor snips anything that doesn't look kosher.

In case you're wondering why I'm writing about all this, the answer is today while you're reading this I'll be going through what I just described.

See you all tomorrow.
