Well Christmas is over and done with. It was filled with family, friends, great gifts, great food and a colonoscopy.

That whole sentence just isn't right.

But I see that when you turn 50 there are a few unpleasant requirements that beckon.

And you have to comply.

And you have to stop eating solid foods and only drink clear liquids.

And you have to prep.

And you have to show up with a responsible person to drive.

And you have to get put under.

And you have to try to wake up.

And you have to try to stand up.

And then the nurses realize that you are a wimp and need more time to recuperate, so back down you go.

And then after you have rested, they might ask you to come back the next day and do it all over again because maybe you didn't prep good enough.

I'm starting to think that the Fabulous Fifties are highly overrated.

I'm sorry and just so you know those are not fun. I had one done and you are not a wimp.

Oh, no, please say you're kidding about doing it all over again! I've had that several times and the best part is being put under!

Been there, done that - the part about not prepping well enough! I just could not get that gallon of salty junk down! Not a fun thing - glad it's over!

OK, you're scaring me. You mean the mammogram is not the worst thing you have to endure after a certain age? Katie Couric was faking it? Geeze louise! ::praying:: May there be great technological advances in the next 12 years. Ugh!
