True story: I was cleaning out the consul of my car late yesterday afternoon after work when I spied two unopened open infusion sets near the bottom of said consul.
OK, I knew I had at least one back up infusion set nestled in the side pocket of my driver side door (in case my site went dead or my tubing got caught on the emergency break, which seem to happen to me a lot) but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had back ups for my back up!
I also found a larabar well past it’s expiration date ( Banana Bread flavored, and I was NOT HAPPY to have let that one go to waste,) an empty canister of test strips (I have no idea why an empty canister was in there) a spare box of lancets, (unopened) and 7/8’s of a bag of jellybeans purchased at Boscov’s during a low blood sugar emergency sometime pre - Easter, 2010.
The Jelly beans were stale, which was a good thing because I’m trying to lose weight, so I tossed them.
As I moved from the drivers side onto the passenger side and collected the empty diet Snapple bottle on said passenger side floor, I found one lone 1 used test strip sitting quietly in the corner and I laughed out loud.
At that very moment, I tapped the empty Diet Snapple bottle every so lightly on my car and waved it all magic wand like and said in a fake English accent: I christen Thee...."The Diabetes Mobile." May good blood sugars and the likes there of, bless all who sail in You! Expecto Patronum!
I swear, sometimes I amuse myself!
