Got a postcard in the mail this week reminding me that it’s time to make an appointment with my urologist.
And I am looking for any excuse I can find.
I am really, really busy at this time of the year.
Can’t we do this some other time?
Or maybe another century?
I checked my schedule and found an opening on May 17.
That’s May 27, 2021.
All this reminds me of a Dave Barry column from a few years ago.
Dave gave four reasons for not scheduling a colonoscopy.
1. You’ve been busy.
2. You don’t have a history of cancer in your family.
3. You haven’t noticed any problems.
4. You don’t want a doctor to stick a tube 17,000 feet up your butt.
The same goes for the dreaded prostate exam.
Just substitute a three-inch index finger for the tube.
Bending over and having some guy stick his finger up your butt is just not natural.
The only thing I can think of that might be worse is CANCER.
Guess I better call my finger — uh, my doctor — and make that appointment.
