The colonoscopy

This is a true story, as my mother is the subject.

For the uninitiated, a colonscopy is a medical procedure, performed by a surgeon, in which the inside of your colon is examined. The patient, mildly sedated, lies on their stomach and the surgeon uses an instrument inserted through the patients rectum to probe the colon.

My uncle being the unfortunate victim of colon cancer, my mother must now have a yearly colonsocopy.

Three years ago, when she went for the first one, she was lying on the table in the operating room, somewhat high from intravenous valium. Her surgeon was a very nice, young, very quiet fellow.

As he appraoched her from the rear, probing instrument in hand, my mother turned her head back around, looked him straight in the eye, and asked, Does your mother know what you do for a living?
