Things are taking off, and time is at a premium with the business getting started. Still, it's that time of the year, and I always go in for my physical. After a certain age, depending on your medical condition, doctors take great pleasure in sticking various things up your ass. For me, that started at age 20 when a small cyst was discovered at the base of my spine.
It doesn't take much to give a doctor reasons to stick a finger up your ass if you're a guy to feel up your prostate gland. It's really been "in" for the last several decades. The women doctors are the worst, they keep the latex gloves with the scapulas they use on the women. They tend to chuckle as you're bent over the table with their finger up your butt. But they are downright vicious when they stick the Silver Stalion up there to take a look and they run 80 psi of air inside to move things apart so they can take a good look.
A Silver Stallion is a chromed tailpipe from a 1932 Studebaker with the latest in fiber optics and a lights, an air hose, 4 on the floor, and a tranny that can make you leave your fingerprints embossed in the metal table as you shriek over the rushing air to the doctor that you aren't gay. Even if you were gay, this is not what you would have signed up for.
But, the great leveler is the colonoscopy. Both men and women are blessed with colons, and we all need to have them carefully examined by a trained specialist every five years after a certain age. The Silver Stallion just won't do. No, we just use a flexible pipe and stick that all the way up your ass until it hits your stomach. It has lights, cameras, and a surgical suite. The last issue at my physical was, "I don't have the date of your last colonoscopy, so you should call and get it scheduled pretty soon."
It may be a while before I get my head out of my ass and smell the flowers again. Until then, please remember to nominate people at the Bloggies so they make the final ballot on the 22nd. I ought to be able to see by then.
