If your doctor ever recommends anything called a “procedure,” get ready for a rollicking good time. Most procedures involve having tiny little glamour shots in places where God did not envision cameras going. The more generous doctors will provide you with an 8 x 10 glossy of what the camera saw, which often looks like Carlsbad Caverns.
Procedures aren’t necessarily fun, but certain ones are necessary every five or ten or so years to stay healthy and to give you something talk about with other old people.
On the up side, “I’m having a procedure” is a fool-proof way to get out of unwanted obligations. So check with your doctor. You’re probably due for something.
