Re: [IP] Real severe" diabetics



Hi guys & gals,
Yesterday (Sunday), I biked up a dirt road, about 3 1/2 miles to the local
taco bell, asked the lady behind the counter for nutrition information.  She
had none.  I showed her the pump, and said, "I'm diabetic and I need the
carbohydrate content of your food."  She got a real bee in her bonnet (Not
wanting to kill the diabetic with tacos or gorditas, but more than willing
to with the aspartame laden Diet Pepsi [it's a joke, I don't want to start
that diatribe again...]), and went looking through the office to no avail.
I told her I'd guess about the carbohydrates, and smiled, thanked her, and
proceded to eat my lunch.

After finishing my lunch, I was in the mood for (hide the children) some
pie!  Even more diaboical, Lemon Merrangue (sp?) pie, the bane of many a
diabetic.  (I said to hide the children, but not in bed with you....
joking, I said!)  She replied, "You're cheating, aren't you?"  Everyone
knows we diabetics don't cheat, lie, steal, or stab our fingers in public,
so I answered, "That's the beauty of this.." , Pointing to my beeper.

If I offended you, sorry.  I need a glucose tablet now.  I've run out of
parenthesis.  (Never mind, I just found one...

Jeff
