[IP] Some stories for a slow day
Since IP seems kind of slow today and we were walking in the mall, it

beside me - this was before I had heard the words *carb-counting*. The lady
said she had a friend who had to test and she had a problem with pretzels.

friend's BG went sky high after just one! "Why?" So, I asked what kind of
pretzel since they come in different shapes.

Little Johnny was going to a birthday party and mom wanted him to be sure to
eat the right size of angel food cake. She drilled him on the size so he'd

etc. but mom insisted on asking about the size of angel food. He said, "Yes,
it was the right size - after I rolled it into a little ball."
