Today is the third day of Diabetes Blog Week, and the topic is “Diabetes Bloopers.” Here’s the full topic description:
Whether you or your loved one are newly diagnosed or have been dealing with diabetes for a while, you probably realize that things can (and will) go wrong. But sometimes the things that go wrong aren’t stressful – instead sometimes they are downright funny! Go ahead and share your Diabetes Blooper – your “I can’t believe I did that” moment – your big “D-oh” – and let’s all have a good laugh together!!
A few years ago I was out to lunch with friends and completely by chance noticed someone sitting alone at a table checking his blood glucose. I kept watching and told my friends that if he pulled out an insulin pump, I was going to go talk to him.
He did, so I walked over and unintentionally delivered the worst pick-up line I’ve ever heard: “So, what are you blousing for that burger?”
What’s worse than the pick-up line is the fact that it worked! When I returned to my lunch, I had a phone number. We dated for a few months, although in the end it wasn’t the right fit. But honestly, what could be a good fit when it started off with a line like “So, what are you blousing for that burger?”
Am I the only one who has done this?
