Henry Rollins Gets a Colonoscopy
The doctor came in, all smiles. Asked if I was ready. "It's your tube, pal," I thought but said yes. That's about all I remember.
I woke up sometime later. The woman who brought me in asked if I was OK. I was. She was smiling. Something was funny. "Do you remember anything you were saying?" she asked. I was talking? At some point during the procedure I was told everything was fine and that my friend Heidi was in the reception area. Apparently, I went off on a rant about how she runs my life. They found it funny enough to tell Heidi. When I finally emerged, everyone was laughing. I was a hit with the Beverly Hills med set.
As a parting gift, I was given photos that the camera took of me so I can relive the fun anytime I want.
The colonoscopy was humbling and like a lot of things in life -- it totally sucked. Well, it's behind me now ... and isn't everything but the bright, bold future? Hey now!
