I'm coming up on my fifth (or sixth?) colonoscopy (Crohn's Disease), and the Dave Barry piece always cracks me up. But the prep now is much gentler, with only 64 oz to drink, in two sessions of 32 oz. And you can mix it with Gatorade. Plus a couple of Dulcolax tablets. The "joy juice" (usually propofol) they give you is amazing- you might sense a slight chill in your arm, then BINGO, it's 45 minutes later, and you feel very mellow! I always explain the missing time as a likely alien abduction, complete with anal probe...
