Tale: Two Toasts

Regarding traditional husband-wife bicker over how load dishwasher, Bigfoot eagerly submit to husband’s superior technique/happy oblige. Big philosophical difference Bigfoot home lately = how make toast.

Exemplary actions marked with red arrows. Minor dipshits marked in blue.

Short of share children, enjoyment snow, taste movies/fabrics/pens, friends, house, bed, and strong belief in importance weigh sliced bread, Bigfoot/BSpouse almost nothing in common.

This how Bigfoot spend quality spirit-time @church: outline toast beliefs.

Although I have never actually weighed a slice before/after, I believe toasted bread weighs less than bread in its original form due to significant moisture loss

I believe in delaying the toasting process, and therefore the eating of the toast, for some period of time after administering bolus insulin

I believe in discussing jam options before bolusing, even though I am 99% certain the answer will be Crofter’s Raspberry, because one day the answer will be peanut butter and I don’t want to miss it

While I realize none of this actually matters in terms of my child’s long-term health, it matters in terms of just acting like a normal human being and doing things in an order that makes sense.

    Ha, interesting! Besides the fun/fascinating factor, I think this also shows exactly how something so simple can be taken for granted by those who never think about their (or their loved one’s) pancreas. Eating a piece of toast can take 5 minutes to think about!!
