Oh Joy - My Diet For The Next 36 Hours

Starting tonight, my diet for the next 36 hours or so will be liquid and some will be especially wonderful tasting medicinal liquids at that. It will start tonight with 10 ounces of Magnesium Citrate. Then tomorrow, this will be followed by clear liquids like apple juice, tea coffee (don't know how they think black coffee is clear but it is on the list), lemonade and maybe some others up until 8PM. (I wonder if clear liquids include vodka?).

At around 8PM tomorrow night, I'll add that wonderful elixir Movi-Prep to the mix, 4 doses spread out over an hour, 1 dose every 15 minutes. After that I can continue clear liquids until midnight. On Tuesday, I have to get up at 5AM and drink another ration of Movi-Prep - another 4 doses of it - oh what a joy. If you have ever had to drink this swill you know I am being sarcastic when I say "oh joy". Besides the absolutely horrible taste this stuff has a magical effect on your innards causing them to purge themselves.

The reason for all this is I am going to get scoped out from both ends on Tuesday morning. Hopefully they will do the top half first just in case they forget to change to a new tube for the second half of the exam; I would hate to wake up with a bad taste in my mouth. Wish me luck.

All the best,
Glenn B
