Day 64, July 22

Once you reach the 50 and older mark, the subject of health and fitness occupies your every waking thought.  You start considering procedures that even five years ago, you would have laughed at. 

High colonics is one such thing.  When I first came upon this term, I have to admit that I didn't know what it was.  Was it like high tea where crumpets and Earl Grey are served in saucers and demitasse cups?  

The short answer is "No."  I went to, where else, the Internet, to learn just what high colonics was and came away with the following definition:.  colon hydrotherapy (high colonics) eliminates from the bowel the accumulated waste material which may get absorbed.

Yuck.  Further investigation revealed that being "coloniced" meant having water, or other liquid, shot up your keester.  I even learned of coffee colonics.  (I hope they cooled it first.)

It didn't take any more research to convince me that I wasn't having any high--or low--colonics.
