Yesterday, Bubs see teen girl running Nauset Beach with Inset 30 site on thigh, peek out from cute polka-dot suit. When girl stop close by, Bubs begin ostentatious display. Loud voice Dad, do you know where my METER is? Girl not notice. Loud voice Let’s see how many TEST STRIPS are left. Look toward Inset 30 girl. Expectant. Wait few beats. Prick finger, test. After meter count down 5-4-3-2-1, beep, loud voice, Mom, what’s my BLOOD GLUCOSE? Girl not notice. Next loud voice I think I need to clean out the SITE for my PUMP. Blast air can in site, replug pump. Girl not notice. Bubs lean in Bigfoot side, towel over face. I’m too shy to talk to her. Will you go tell her about me?
Sweet girl so happy noticed, very patient speak w. Bubs. First time this girl spot pumper in wild also at Nauset Beach, but it five years ago. Everyone laugh at coincidence. Ha!
Parents ask Bigfoot many questions. Each answer parents’ eyes grow more wary. Don’t you find he’s active enough at the beach go without insulin? Why is he wearing his pump at the beach? Ask What do you use to treat lows? Answer, #1 choice is Starbursts, but add in something re Glucolift tabs for seem more science when see Starburst cause incredulous expression upon father’s face. Hwvr, Glucolift mention not improve father liking of Bigfoot. Why don’t you just use juice boxes? Did no one tell you about the juice boxes? Ask Bigfoot, that jacket looks very comfortable. Do you know where the heck can you get something like that around here? Answer not sure close by shop, but easy order online. Free shipping. Inset 30 father look down at sand to side, shake head in “boy are you a sucker” gesture. Bigfoot hear self say how cozy this jacket is, rub arms, smile as if relish absolute comfort. Maybe even go mmmm. Inset 30 mother interject, try rescue Bigfoot: what were his symptoms when he was diagnosed? Thirsty? Bigfoot say yes, thirsty and peeing a lot. Oh how terrible that it got to that point. What was his number when you got to the hospital? Bigfoot answer think it five hundred something. Ours was 414. She was just kind of tired. Well, good luck with it…
Clearly not Bigfoot BFF, but feel little bit in love. So happy see site on beach on other person skin.
