Exciting day tomorrow, as I have a colonoscopy and the same from the other end. I was given a mystery powder to empty myself out in advance, but nothing like the intestinal eruptions suggested by bowel bloggers out there, very disappointing. A colleague at work who had this done recently (yes I do work as well as write) emailed me this encouraging message –
‘When is went in I sat on the bed looking for the little narrow tube I was supposed to swallow. All I could spot was something like a black garden hose. I was pretty shocked when I saw it actually. It was no drama though so was nothing to worry about. The stuff they spray down your throat is what I imagine a liquefied rotten dog tastes like though’
thanks for that, Chris. If you’re wondering what this has to do with SciFi or Horror, try it yourself.
