A Phoneographic Post-Procedure Pheast

Phoneographic Pheast | ©Tom Palladio ImagesI know this is way more information than you bargained for, but just shy of the 24-hour mark of fasting, during which I forced down four liters of a citrus-flavored polyethylene glycol solution to pave the way for this morning’s “Roto-Rooter” medical procedure, sans a “twilight” sedation, at Ospedale San Bortolo in beautiful downtown Vicenza — it went fine, thanks for asking — I was famished.

Sputtering home with my tank pointing well past empty, I could think of only one thing: FOOD.

Suffice it to say, the late-morning ingest hit the spot and I feel like I’m almost back to normal. Here’s what the pheast looked like — via my iPhone 5, not an endoscope — before I attacked it like a pheeding phrenzy along the Serengeti Plain.

Written by The Palladian Traveler

Tom traded his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "capello" in the Puglia region of southeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him into and out of 50 countries and counting, Tom fell in love with the "Bel Paese" years ago. As he notes, "I'm inspired by the beauty I find in all things that are very, very old, and reliving history, or at least meandering along the travertine and cobblestone that were laid down over a thousand years ago and just looking up and marveling at what occupies the space still today, really gets my 'Vespa' running." Tom has a good eye behind the lens and is a graphic storyteller, but he'll let you decide as he keeps his camera batteries fully charged and the posts flowing from his creative hideaway in the hills overlooking Ostuni. You can also follow his dispatches via TravelingBoy.com and Anthology Magazine Ireland.


    1. Don’t be. It was just a routine procedure without much discomfort, even when you wave off the “twilight” sedation. With three female attendants — 1 doc, 2 nurses — looking on, I couldn’t very well cry in front of them. 🙂


  1. I’m NOT doing the ph-test with you today; I’m just not!! 🙂 Glad all went well. Having done this once and not being able to keep down all nasty liquid, I can empathize. Your feast looks wonderful, per usual. I also did food today, which I don’t usual do, at least in photos. 🙂

    Maybe you could do a movie sequel to “Ender’s Game.” BWG.



  2. pensaso fosse troppo ,subito dopo l’esame..quando ritorno un buon pranzetto speciale assieme alla Lucia..
