I had stayed home from school complaining of a stomach ache. Mom had to go to work and dad was on the road out of town. Grandma lived next door and would check in on me periodically. At one point, grandma felt my forehead and asked if I felt warm. She fumbled the glass thermometer and dropped it on the floor as she shook it down before putting it under my tongue. She cussed and said she'd be back shortly. When she returned, she had a different thermometer with the stubby bulb on the end. I knew what that was for and began to protest. Grandma said my mom wanted to know if I had a fever or if she should call the doctor. The bottom line is my temp was taken rectally and was apparently normal. Grandma called my mom and told her I didn't have a fever and had been watching TV all day. I had eaten some lunch and didn't display any outward signs off illness.
Mom came home from work early and my sister had come home from school also. When mom questioned me she seemed a bit perturbed. At one point she accused me of faking in order to skip school. My sister was in the background taunting me silently but making gestures that I was going to soon be in trouble.
Mom told my sister to go next door to grandma's and she asked why. Mom said that she had to take care of something and my sister kept pressing her claiming that she had some homework. Mom relented and said she was going to give me an enema and my sister needed to leave. I began to protest and mom reminded me of her rule that we always got an enema if we stayed home from school and that the doctor told her that was OK and If I kept up my protest I'd also get a spanking.
I watched as mom was preparing the enema at the kitchen sink. The phone rang and she answered it after putting the enema bag in the sink. I could tell that it was my aunt and mom told her she would have to call her back because I was about to get an enema. The conversation lasted a couple more minutes as I could hear mom explaining that she always gave us kids an enema when we stayed home from school or church, especially if she thought we were faking illness. I also heard mom saying she sometimes makes the enema extra soapy to make a point. After hanging up, mom turned to me and said I needed to get undressed and go lay down in the tub.
As I laid in the tub, the phone rang again. This time it was dad and mom told him I was about to get an enema and to call back later. Soon grandma came walking in and said my sister told her I was getting an enema. Grandma offered to help and said my sister was outside with friends. Mom filled the bag and when she came into the bathroom, grandma was right behind her. Mom asked grandma to drop the bar of Palmolive soap into the bag and then she shook it up. I could smell the soapy water. Mom handed the bag to grandma as she lubed my bum and inserted the long black nozzle. Mom took the bag and sat on the toilet with the lid closed. Grandma retrieved a folding chair and sat as I was filled with the soapy enema. I complained I was full and about to lose the liquid and mom said I better not. I finally exploded in the toilet as I was allowed to. I got another plain water enema after ward.
When I exited the bathroom, my sister was there with a couple of friends who were all giggling. It seemed everyone knew that I had gotten an enema.
