“One of the few times in a man’s life when he is not full of shit!!

The morning of a colonoscopy. Enough said!” 

Jim Lawrence

Another benefit of getting older is the opportunity to prepare for a colonoscopy.

Since this is not my first experience, I’ve devised little tricks to make this day go a little smoother–no pun intended.

This morning I entertained Micheal by asking him the riddles I found my popsicle sticks. Who knew? Made me think of those summer days when my sisters and I would set on our front steps, eating as fast as we could so we didn’t get drips on our summer shirts. We didn’t have the riddles, though.

My afternoon schedule is much less entertaining.

Just a few minutes ago I refilled my wine glass from the gallon of liquid I get to enjoy and complete over the next 4.5 hours.  The clock is winding down much faster than my wine glass.

I’ve had a  lot of experience watching the level of liquid in my wine glass. It’s puzzling to me why the level is so slow in responding to the huge sips I’m taking in order to complete my task by 6 p.m.

I’m pretty sure if this glass was filled with a nice Merlot I’d be well into my second bottle by now.

This particular conundrum may call for more research.

I think I’ll be ready by Saturday.

“All worries are less with wine.”

I am…

B…simply being.
