“Think of your favorite foods,”she says. “I know it might not make sense,” especially because I haven’t eaten anything since before bed last night, “but it helps your body move things through.” Yeah, like the jar full of barium I just chugged “like you’re so very thirsty.” Oh, and the jar before that, too, that I swallowed a “biggest-mouthful-you-can-stand” at a time. But the sooner this stuff transfers from the small intestine (the A train) to the large (the B train), the sooner this is over. So, pacing back and forth in the halls of the radiology center, here goes. And what the heck, let’s throw in a little Sound of Music for inspiration:
And warm morning pastries,
Swirls of hot fudge over
Ice cream, so tasty
Slices of pizza that brighten my moods.
These are a few of my favorites foods.
Pulled pork in barbecue,
Tri-tip from Costco
Grilled to perfect pink done-ness,
I’d even take mint gum
Or tea freshly brewed.
These are a few of my favorite foods.
When I’m lounging,
When I’m working,
When I’ve had a few,
I simply indulge in my favorite foods
And then I will feel brand new.
I think Julie Andrews would be proud!
