Thank you to those who emailed to say they enjoyed reading about my “colonoscopy cruise” in April 2015 Readers Digest Canada. (If you missed it or you’re contemplating a “voyage to the end of the colon,” you can check it out here: “Behind: The Scenes.” You’ll love Ohara Hale’s illustrations!)
The magazine asked me why I’d chosen to write about the colon. I told them that as a writer, I love colons. And semi-colons. And embarrassing topics. And I do. Although the research I had to undertake to complete my colonoscopy cruise piece was more “in depth” than usual!
My motto is this: You might as well laugh at yourself—everybody else is. Whether you’re embarking on a colonoscopy cruise, about to be poked and prodded in some other procedure, or simply struggling with a pesky life problem, laughter is still the best medicine. Find the funny; heal the spirit.
P.S. I know I promised to post my “kissing for klutzes” video. Between performances and new writing, that hasn’t happened yet. Maybe my conveyor belt video will give you a giggle. And if you’re setting out on your own colonoscopy cruise—bottoms up!
