Bigfoot not much coarse language but oh my holy fucking god are you fucking kidding me? Persistent hypoglycemia. Bubs’s blood sugar not go up. Not go up. Not go up. Episode of The Office. Not up. Episode of The Middle. Not up. Again The Middle. Way past bedtime. Not up.
Hear of phenomenon but never experience. Foolhardy! Think never happen Bubs, possible for Southern diabetic child or urban diabetic child or Finnish diabetic child, maybe Sardinian. Similar unemployment, hurricane, mugger victim. Know exist but think not for Bigfoot.
Try make sense. This not interesting for normal person. For Bigfoot, fascinate.
