When I came to, I could hear a lot of chatting from other people. I was wondering why they were so alert and chatty, I was so tired! Of course, they probably had a different procedure than I did.

There were a lot of firsts for me in this colonoscopy. I’ve never had an IV before, I don’t think I’ve had an anaesthetic before, and I had a little nostril oxygen thingy too.

And then, the abrupt change I put in this comic is similar to what I experienced. The last thing I remember is asking what program their child went to at university. It was so weird how I can recall nothing in between.

Panel 1 -
Doctor: I'll administer the anaesthetic now.
Errol: So, what is your youngest taking at university?
Doctor: They're taking business.

Panel 2 (Background and Errol's position has changed) -
Errol (thinking): Ugh. I'm too tired to go into work.

Panel 3 -
Errol (thinking): Wait. I'm not at home...right! I just had a colonoscopy! But...what happened? Am I in a different room?

Panel 4 -
Errol (thinking): I...remember nothing! I just jumped into the future! Whoa...


    1. It took me a bit to realize I was in a different room. I had to think, “I’m sure there was a wall in front of me, as opposed to this curtain.” 😀
