[IP] getting significant other to understand what DM is like

Here's an idea...get them the game "Bop It".  It's this game where you have
to follow the orders of the mechanism and if you fail it screams "AHHHH!!".
Have your significant other play the game all day long on top of whatever
else he/she is doing.  When it screams "Ahhhhh!" tell them that's a high or
low blood sugar.  Trying to keep your blood sugar in the magic range at all
times is like playing "Bop It" on top of whatever else you are doing except
without the crummy feelings that go along with highs and lows.

Of course having the pump makes it easier to do "Bop It" longer.
