In 2002 we ran away from Illinois where we were born and raised, and started a new life in SW Florida. This blog is about me (an eccentric old artist), ROM (my Real Old Man), Isabella (our neurotic Standard Poodle) and Emmy (our crazy snake killing Jack Russell Terrier). Oh- and the neighborhood old people. Life is good in Florida!

And The Preparation Ritual Begins...

I took Real Old Man out for a late breakfast- his last meal until his anal probing, sometime tomorrow afternoon. As you can see he cleaned his plate, or rather plates.
It's now 1 p.m. and he has completed step one of his pre-colonoscopy cleansing ritual- ingested two laxative tablets.  On the way home this morning we stopped to pick up Vaseline and baby wipes which the instruction sheet said he should use at 5 p.m. Why 5 p.m. was specifically noted as the time to lubricate and wipe I have no idea. But I assume these instructions were written by an experienced and officially certified colon preparation expert and they know what they're talking about.


  1. As someone who has gone through this ritual a few weeks ago, your remarks hit, uh, home (?). I want to say it gets better, but nope, it don't.

  2. Yeah those officially certified colon preparation experts know their shit.
    That's hysterical that they specify when to lube and to clean up. But they are the experts.
