So, the worst part about having a colonoscopy is the day before. You have to fast, which--ask my husband--makes me crabby. And, then you have to drink a ton of nasty tasting laxatives.
Knowing I had to fast just made me that much hungrier, so I made a mental list of all the delicious things I was going to eat as soon as I finished my colonoscopy.
I ate jello by the mixing bowl full.
I drank Diet Coke like it was going out of style.
I also drank HalfLytely like it was going out of style…albeit not happily. I would chug a glass of prep and chant over and over in my head, "I don't want my boss to see poop in my colon. I don't want my boss to see poop in my colon." Whatever...it kept me going.
And, I nearly cried every time a food commercial came on TV. Why does the Angry Whopper have to look so delicious? Or, why does Johnny Carino's choose today to start their Two-Can-Dine for $19.99? Or, why is Applebee's bragging about their delicious steaks for $9.99?
I never realized there were so many delicious food commercials on TV.
