Next week I have to go in to hospital for an operation on my head. Basically I’m having my sinuses done and my deviated septum corrected.
This will be the first general anesthetic operation I’ve had, so I’m cacking myself a bit about it.
This will not stop me taking the piss a little though. This is my coping mechanism:
- Ask the anesthetist if I will dream – as SAL asked Dr. Chandra in the much under-rated film “2010”.
- Attempt to sing “Daisy Bell” as I go under anesthetic. If I have to explain this, even given the last bit, then you are clearly not supposed to be reading this.
- Hope that my last words aren’t the above. “Well, that escalated quickly!” would be my preference,
