Going through the Stargate, feet first and pants down - The Ninja Pencil

I had a CAT scan this morning, and it wasn’t much like I expected. I was picturing the enclosed MRI torpedo tube, but it was nothing like it.
Highlights were:
Drinking 2 bottles of “Blueberry” flavored Barium Sulfate solution or something. Not very pleasant, but tolerable.
A blood-dyeing IV that created the warm-crotch sensation of having peed yourself
The machine looked like a Stargate or a Donut, and the bed moved up and maneuvered me though the center while it scanned me. I felt very phallic.
Being in and out within half an hour, and back at work by nine.
As the technician stuck the needle into my arm, it occurred to me: this is about the best thing that’s happened to me all week.

I don't know which is cooler, a machine that looks like a Stargate, or one that looks like a doughnut. Hope you're ok?

It was a very cool machine - made by Siemens, according to the logo.
I think I'm OK, thanks, but been having some stomach issues I need to get to the bottom of. I dunno what it saw yet, but am hoping nothing too interesting.

Haha, I really do know what you mean by the best thing that happened all week. It IS interesting, and a strange feeling having to succumb to machines, give your body to what they're doing. Like being in a science experiment. And all the sensations because we're right there in that moment.

I hope you find out what's causing the problem and it's easily fixed!
