I had a CAT scan this morning, and it wasn’t much like I expected. I was picturing the enclosed MRI torpedo tube, but it was nothing like it.

Highlights were:

Drinking 2 bottles of “Blueberry” flavored Barium Sulfate solution or something. Not very pleasant, but tolerable.

A blood-dyeing IV that created the warm-crotch sensation of having peed yourself

The machine looked like a Stargate or a Donut, and the bed moved up and maneuvered me though the center while it scanned me. I felt very phallic.

Being in and out within half an hour, and back at work by nine.

As the technician stuck the needle into my arm, it occurred to me: this is about the best thing that’s happened to me all week.
