Having my picture taken



Okay not exactly my picture but a high definition real-time image taken from inside my bladder. Yes it was hospital day today – my annual bladder scan. Fortunately the camera is a fibre optic device inserted via the only possible orifice. Thank goodness for technology. And local anaesthetics.

It is not what I’d call a pleasant experience but so many people have far, far worse to contend with so I’ve no complaints. The procedure was performed by a young and attractive female doctor, so did that make it more pleasant and give me something to look forward to next year?

No. I'll still groan next year when the envelope pops through the letterbox.

Having just had an attractive young Asian woman perform a digital rectal examination of my prostate, my answer would also be a resounding (well, more like whimpering) "No". Sexual fantasies and banter are incredibly fragile. At the slightest hint of unpleasant reality they melt away to nothing.

Are you not going to post the scan? That's what a celeb would do.

The antithesis of 'YouTube' no doubt!

Hope you keep well!

When I saw the pictures on screen I mentioned that it was better than the football.

Sam - "sexual fantasies and banter are incredibly fragile". Spot on - which is just as well really.

Mark - no, I wouldn't want it to go viral.

Scrobs - ha ha!

Demetrius - there is certainly more tension.
