Long live the pancreas!
Being a diabetic is not easy. If someone offers me a carrot I want to stick it into a huge snowball and add some pebble eyes. Or thinly slice them into coins and stuff them into a candy machine. Hearing the words "blood sugar" makes me think about red velvet cake all sugary and blood red. Odd. Also recently, I switched to soy milk to feel pompous. However when I think of soy beans I just think "beans" and end up visualizing myself pouring refried beans over my cereal. And my ultimate fail as a diabetic is not eating enough vegetables. Even now I had to use spell check, because I can't even spell "vegetables" right. Lame.
