 Stephen said the same thing. (He's been pumping only 3 weeks).  He tried a 
short one for the first time this week, and quickly discovered its 
"short"coming.  He couldn't pull down his pants to go to the bathroom when it 
was clipped to his pocket!  He kept forgetting and it tugged at his site.  
Didn't pull out, but it made him realize he'd rather deal with the extra 
tubing in his pocket.  Stephen is 12 by the way, and he swam the day he got 
his pump.  High fat foods is much more difficult to deal with than exercise, 
for us anyway.  He just finished a week at soccer camp.  Went great!  He goes 
to "diabetes" camp for 2 weeks on Sunday.

Good luck!
