I had one today and it was wonderful.

Thought I would share my good fortune with all of you, as this event is under appreciated here at home and it might make for an interesting -- albeit brief -- discussion.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

Had mine about a month ago. The procedure itself is no biggie. The cleanse...well, that's something else entirely.

Colonoscopies are wonderful things. DON'T PUT IT OFF! The day before is unpleasant but the operation itself is a breeze.

I've told this story before, but I will again, because it stresses how important getting them on schedule is: My father put off his colonoscopy. For about 15 years. Finally my mother badgered him into getting one, and he was found to already have full-blown colon cancer. The doctors said that it was slow growing cancer, and if he had gotten his colonoscopies when he should have, the removal would have been a simple outpatient procedure with hardly any chance of side effects or lasting problems. Instead he had a significant chance of dying of it. Luckily he is now cancer free, but to get there he had to go through surgery and a year of chemo, and now must spend the rest of his life with the nasty side effects of having large chunks of his intestines removed (it's a bit like having a permanent case of stomach flu).

So GET IT DONE ON TIME! DON'T PUT IT OFF! I had mine done 10 years early, which is recommended when you have a family history.

I'm on the short-timers list. Like next week. I fear the pre-game purge more than the actual procedure.

Both my parents had polyps removed, so I get to start in on the fun a few years early.

They're actually pretty fun to do. It's like playing a video game... and a trombone! (with a lot more farting... surprise)

Had my first a couple years ago at 27 because I had some nasty hemorrhoids bothering me. Turns out I had pre-cancerous polyps and would have had colon cancer in my early 30s. Now I'm grateful those hemorrhoids got me to go in!

You are a master of understatement.

That cleanse is an mf'er to be sure. But it was worth it just to be handed a clean bill of health by my doctor. YESSS!!!

It's hard to imagine more farting than I already do when playing a video game.

Dammit. We're pretty much the same age. Guess I should put that on my TO-DO list then.
