Diabetes Week #4: Dream Gadget

Think of your dream blood glucose checker, delivery system for insulin or other meds, magic carb counter, etc etc etc.  The sky is the limit – what would you love to see?


Bubs love dogs. Always love dogs since baby. Even enjoy roll around in dog park poop-dirt with dog pack, although normally fastidious. Think hypoglycemia alert dog perfect (not gadget but) tool Bigfoot family. Dog stay by Bubs’s side in spiffy vest, maybe little pocket for Skittes built in. Bubs bring to school, dog sit under desk, maybe bring to SAT and GRE, take to college like Amelia.

But this dog already exist real world. For fantasy device, wish translator collar like Dug in UP.

Your blood sugar is high. You smell like pee pee. I love you!

Emergency! I live to serve! You’re low! Smells like bacon! Eat sugar!

Side benefit, put translator collar on current, emotional disturb dog. Just like use Bubs’s sugar meter for diagnosing self ailment, could use Li’l Margaret Cho’s translator collar diagnose current dog issues.

Whoa. Whoa. WHOA! Not cool! Not cool! That prick UPS guy is on the porch! Shit! Shit! Shit! Why isn’t he leav—motherfucker rang the doorbell!

      I love it! My smartest friend keeps recommending The Rumpus to me.


      • Steve · May 17, 2012

        I’ve asked my kids (okay, just my wife) to get it for me for Father’s Day. It’s all I want.


    • Katy · June 28, 2012

      • Steve · June 28, 2012

        Sad to say, nope, not yet. Maybe I write like a dumb a$$, instead.

    you have a current emotional disturb dog? how did i miss this? please tell me you are familiar with allie brosh’s Simple Dog. if not, get thee to this post: http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2011/04/wild-animal-simple-dog-goes-for-joy.html (there are others further back in her archives)

    SPIFFY VEST. loooove the dog from UP. would be SO BRILL to have one for ourselves!


    • Katy · May 18, 2012

      i love this because it makes me think my annoying dog could be charming and interesting if i drew him into a hot pink and yellow story with bright blue couches and rugs

    I love this. Love every paragraph. I also love that the comments have sent me to that simple dog. I have a disturbed chihuahua and a simple dachshund. I like the idea of the translator for them even more than the D.A.D. Would be very entertaining.
    P.S. When we were getting ready to get a Diabetic Alert Dog for my son, Dug was on our name list. I love Dug.


    • Katy · May 18, 2012

      Emily, you have a DAD and TWO disturbed dogs??? Did they try to kill Molly?


      • Emily B · July 23, 2012

        Ha! Somehow I never saw that you replied to me until now. The did not try to kill Molly but the chihuahua probably wanted to. We were living with my mom and recently moved. The disturbed and simple dog stayed with her. We took the genius with us.
