Way back when I was first diagnosed with "the diabetes," Looney Tunes used to air really early on Saturday mornings and occasionally every now and then in the afternoons.
On Saturday mornings I'd get up super early and my oldest brother would usually be walking in the door from God knows where - and we'd watch tv together.
He loved the Looney Tunes and because he did, I did.
Plus, they were really funny!
And I specifically remember the above cartoon and laughing out loud.
I also remember that after I watched said cartoon, I got up and started dancing around the living room singing: Dog pile on the diabetes, dog pile on the diabetes, dog pile on the diabetes!
Yes, I was sort of a weird kid who was highly influenced by what she saw on television.
But here's the thing: Even today, during those moments when I'm kicking diabetes ass and to the curb and go from the diabetes underdog to the diabetes top dog, I still sing out loud:
Dog pile on the diabetes, dog pile on the diabetes!!!
And with any luck, you won't be able to get that phrase out of your head now either!!!
Are you singing it yet??? Are people looking at you at work like your crazy???
YES, My diabetesalicious plan is succeeding!!!
