Just received an email under the heading 'Colonoscopy'. Not sure whether this was a coincidence, or the sender knows that my surgeon intends to inspect the inside of my colon later this week. I will not be allowed anything but water to drink for over 40 hours! This is what this heartless person sent me.
Colonoscopy - The organs of the body were engaged in debate about who called the shots.
"Me" said the brain, "because I run all the body's systems".
"Me" said the blood, "because I circulate the life giving oxygen".
"Me" said the stomach "because I process all the food."
"Me" said the legs "because I carry the body where it wants to go".
"Me" said the eyes "because I allow the body to see where it goes."
"Me" said the rectum "because I remove all the waste."
They all laughed at the rectum, so it got into a huff and closed down.
In a few days the brain had a terrible headache, the stomach was bloated, the legs were wobbly,, the blood was toxic and the eyes were watery. In desperation they were all forced to agree that the rectum was top dog. This goes to prove that no matter who does all the work, its usually the a******* who's in charge. This story was started by a member of Gordon Brown's cabinet.
As it happens, my surgeon removed my rectum six years ago, so I suppose no-one is in charge of my body! Anyway, its my birthday today so we're off out for a slap-up meal. So no blogging until tomorrow night. I suppose its the last proper meal I'm going to have for a while.
