I’m smart (not MENSA smart mind you,) but I have enough sense to come out of the rain so to speak. Anyway, there are things I just don’t get- and continually make me go: Hmmmmm.
And everyone once in a while - I post about them.
SO (and in no particular order) here are some additions to things in this universe that make me go Hmmm?
Algebra – And yes, I have the High School & college transcripts to prove it.
Why 2 bottles of insulin cost me $138 dollars out of pocket- and why is it that my insurance company ONLY reimburses me 40%, which comes out to be $55.
Why does my insurance company penalize me because insulin is not made in a generic form? It’s not like it’s a “luxury” medication to make my eyelashes grow longer, thicker, & more luxurious. I need insulin to live for goodness sake!
Why do people LOVE to eat Scrapple? Not me, of course. I have not ideal why ANYONE in the universe would eat something called Scrapple and I have a very vivid memory of my 4 year old self saying that very same phrase to my mother.
For those of you not in the East Coast Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware region-Scrapple is a “delicacy,” (and I use that term VERY LOOSELY) which one either loves or loathes. Let’s just say it’s made from the “scrap” pieces from a pig. I think I would loathe it- even though to be fair, I’ve never eaten it. And I NEVER will.
Why does my insulin pump battery need to changed the ONE time I forget to carry a spare?
Why do people watch “The Hills?” Now to fair, I’ve NEVER watched the show, so I may very well be missing out on something phenomenal. But for what
I’ve seen and read about the show and its stars, IT"S TOTALLY FAKE. And they “seem” to be shallow- like really shallow. More shallow then the bay at low tide.
How come whenever I’m at my moms and we’re watching TV, a commercial for ED (Erectile Dysfunction) comes on?
And why does she ask me every single time what ED is??? This NEVER happens to my siblings!
Why are people shocked when I tell them I’ve never eaten anything from Kentucky Fried Chicken?
Why are most shoes made for those of us made with wide feet so ugly and sensible looking? A wide toe span does not mean that one has no sense of fashion and or taste.
Why are Kim Kardashian and her sisters famous?
Why is it that that Every January 1st, the cost for my insulin magically goes down to $126 for two bottles, but then and just as magically, go back up to $138 once I reach my deductible?
Why do nail fungus commercials think I actually want to see either a real live nail fungus or an artist’s rendering on said commercial? I’ll take your word that they do indeed suck- I don’t need visuals!
Why do people only see this face:
As the faces of Diabetes?
People with Diabetes are a diverse group spanning many ages, races, and types and it's time the media represent all of our faces!
