Vegas All Tricked Out Diabetes Style~

So I leave for Vegas on Sunday morning. I've never been there (except for a layover at the Vegas Airport) so I'm expecting it to be all types of Vegas-ee.
But the weird part of my brain that's "all diabetes all the time," envisions things a bit different - I'm envisioning Vegas all tricked out diabetes style!

If Vegas was tricked out diabetes style, the casinos would be filled with tables of Blood Sugar Roulette, and me personally, and I'd be playing Red 110.

The slot machines would be emblazoned with Blood Sugar Bulls eyes and the words DIABEETUS in all types of mind boggling font.

Winning Blackjack would envolve used teststrips counts and I'd TOTALLY win.

Halle Berry would be part the entertainment. Did you know she's a magician/commedian? Seriously, girlfriend can ween herself off insulin and go from being a type 1 to a type 2 faster than you can say "GET THE EFF OUTTA HERE!" I'm already LOLROTFLMAO just thinking about it!

Halle would be immediately followed by Cirque De Soleil's best selling show: LANGERHANS, a musical/dance mash-up to songs including, but not limited to; Def Leopard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me," "Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic," by The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Tchaikovsky's "Dance Of The Sugar Plumb Fairies." Ahhhh, good times, good times.

In this Diabetes Styled Vegas, the BOLUS WORTHY buffets would all have carb counts, and the doorknobs would steer clear of my insulin pump.

But Seriously, if your around the Vegas Strip, email me and maybe we can meet at one of Treasure Island's Pirate Ships. Dancing Diabetes Pirates to my right, singing Diabetes Pirates to my left! AAARRRRGGGGG!!

This is a great post! Sending to my mom, who's been Type 1 her whole life and loves Vegas to the point of wanting to retire there. Anyhow, great stuff Kelly! Don't forget, in a D-Tripped Vegas: you win pump/CGM supplies and artificial pancreas potential instead of cash! Just make sure those pit bosses (er, D-Police) don't interfere with the grand scheme...
