I was given two glycerine suppositories (a double dose) on a few occasions, when mum calculated that my bowels were so full that one wasn't enough.I specifically remember the first time, when I was 4 years old, because I thought I was "off the hook," she hadn't hassled me about my doos for a couple of days. And then, to my horror, she revived her old trick of suddenly bending me over when she was getting me out of the bath and, without a word of warning, pushing a "jelly-bomber" up me. And then another one Why? Because I needed it to make sure I did a big doodle, apparently. But I don't remember whether I actually did, I just remember the insertion.
