A handy tip

When it’s time for a colonoscopy, the absolute worst part is drinking the suprep, the horrible fluid that cleans you out like a whistle. It is difficult to fully describe the experience; there are certainly more horrible tastes, but after a few swallows your mind and body announces “NOPE!” and every sip becomes an ordeal. 16 ounces might as well be an ocean.

Well, here I am on my third colonoscopy and I have now found the secret to a small mitigation of the horror. Instead of water, mix it with the most ginger aleish ginger ale you can find. It will be the second most awful drink you have ever had, but a significant jump over the first.

It also helps to have a hard butter scotch candy in your mouth when enduring this ordeal.
