This may be one that's only funny to me... Last week I had dinner with my friend Dave, and for some reason the subject of colonoscopies came up. I mentioned that my Dad had one a couple days earlier (a fact I knew because it was his facebook status - which is amusing in itself), and said I was surprised that he hadn't posted pictures of it on his blog. Well I was wrong, he had. Most of the post details the process and that it isn't really so bad (except for the preparation part of it). The funny part comes after the procedure (especially if you know Dad): "The next thing I remember is my wife asking me if I need anything. I'm told that I replied, "IPone". And that I next asked for my camera and mumbled something about taking a photo of the white wall! Well, I suppose I could have said worse." Dad also shares the photos above of him coming out of his stupor and one of Mom patiently standing by. It reminds me of when I was in college and went back home to get my wisdom teeth out. Alas, I had no iPone to ask for back then. I don't remember much but eating ice cream afterward and falling asleep on the couch watching Dumbo. Later Mom said something to me like "if that's what you're like after a party, you must be pretty fun." I think I had giggled all the way home from the Dentists office. If you'd like to read the full story on Dad's colonoscopy, including the photos (which I opted not to post here!), click here:

    I'm guessing the first thing you asked for when coming to was "cupcake"?!

    You may have already seen this, but I thought it related to the story.
