If you are squeamish about today's topic, my apologies. Instead, enjoy this fun video of kids getting dropped off at the pool!
And now for today's topic...recently, my friend GuinneMick encouraged me to do a colon clease. Just like that. Did I somehow look like my colon could use a good cleaning? (I assure you, he would have no idea one way or the other). Nonetheless, he is a very health-conscious guy and so, he thought he should enlighten a slob like me.
He talked about how all of us, regardless of the food that we eat, can have waste toxins that don't naturally exit the body. Despite going #1, #2 and #14, there can still be traces of our waste inside us...for a long time. No es bueno.
GuinneMick is from New York, which means he thinks his opinions are facts. He was adamant that I do the colon cleanse. This is just an old wives' tale, I thought. Just something that hippies and experimental-types somehow get into. Like those people that have decided that they are never going to use deodorant ever again. Sure, they enjoy a good morale victory for their soul, but it's not very pleasant in real-life (and pretty creepy for the rest of us).
But then I thought of my kitchen sink. I see water and soap go into the sink and down the drain. We even run the disposal. Yet, at least once a week, I have to get the brush out and give the sink surface a good scrubbing. Scum can build up. And yes, we even have to use Drano on the pipes sometimes...again, the scum can build up.
Maybe my inner-clydesdale needed a good metaphorical scrubbing.
So, I donned a costume to mask my identity and went in to my nearest Whole Foods store. I found a "natural" Super Colon Cleanse bottle with capsules. It seemed a much better choice than the options on the bottom shelf that had (hard swallow)...nozzles. I'm not ready for that. I like to drink coffee. Not take it medicinally.
Anyway, I have taken all of the pills (not at once) and have had a lot of free time for reading in a small, quiet room. I suppose you could say I am "clean as a whistle".
My question for you: Do you cleanse? Believe in it, or is it nonsense? Please let us know.
And before you leave, here is a nice video of cars driving through the Lincoln Tunnel.
