Forbidden Fruit


Forbidden Fruit

Having completed the requisite fast,
half an hour before the procedure
he swallows a single frozen blueberry
just to freak out the colonoscope.

  1. Just the one frozen blueberry causes mayhem! I have had several colonoscopies but always in hospital – no opportunity of sneaking a blueberry in. 😊

  2. You were determined to give those technicians something to perk up their day? Curious (if this is actual vs wishful) whether it was noticed … what might one get away with by almost following rules?!

  3. Okay….you made me laugh out loud! And my husband just walked in the door and I read this aloud to him. LOVE it! And HATE colonoscopies!

  4. My guffaws filled the room!! I had to share with my “roommates” lest they think I’d gone bonkers.

  5. I have never had a colonoscopy Ron. Had the poop smear procedure and a 1/2 scope – but my depths have not be spelunked. Now I fear the general anesthetic at age 74, and my generally decrepit health. Besides, I am already dying from heart failure, arterial sclerosis, and diabetes — what’s one more. Can’t live forever. This poem is a hoot! 🙂😉
