Whole d-scene drive Bigfoot up wall like hiccups or itchy skirt tag or simultaneous itch/hiccup. Simple solutions dawn on brain as if grace of God/sunlight beams from cloud—-but only if pause for moment/contemplate.
1. Dexcom receiver misinterpret Bigfoot button presses. Eg: calibration. Arrow DOWN or UP for enter BG. Before job complete, receiver misinterpret up/down as CENTER. Center press this moment indicate GO FOR IT WITH THIS NUMBER IT IS THE ONE I MEAN TO TELL YOU. One way out remain. Arrow RIGHT for CANCEL, but receiver misinterpret arrow RIGHT as CENTER, i.e. YES, THAT CERTAINLY IS THE NUMBER WHICH I AM SUPER-SURE I WANT TO ENTER AT THIS TIME. Fie! For weeks.
SOLUTION: Describe the problem and ask Dexcom for a replacement. (Dexcom says, “Sure. I’ll send a new one out to you via FedEx you should receive it tomorrow.”) <—Truly that easy.
2. Eons ago family agree Udi’s toast = not a breakfast. Only possible acceptable Udi’s toast use = under egg or holder for almond butter. Today, notice Bubs chomp Udi’s toast w. jam. What world come to? Seriously. Udi’s toast?! Udi’s toast? With jam. Lord. What kind of monkey show is this?
SOLUTION: Make Mary’s Doughnuts. Or, if a person is wanting jam, make almond flour biscuits. Make sausages. Make bacon. Freeze a banana. Make shaken chocolate milk. Cut up a melon. Make GORP. Make anything.
3. Never know how/what dinner. Every day lately salad-salad-salad & something grilled. Plus carrot sticks. Or this: Chipotle. Sick of. (It pretty lame Bigfoot supply Chipotle link, as if no one hear of/require illumination. It nutrition calculator page, at least.)
SOLUTION: These books. I think I love them. They include instructions on planning and preparing ahead, in bulk, so real food is always ready. The angle is paleo/Whole 30, so no wasted carbs and no crap. Every page is a ray of hope for the cook’s depleted brain. Two of my main IRL food advisers love these books. Adviser one: this. Adviser two: some kind of North African salmon thing which is not easily found in the index.
BONUS ROUND: I visited Camp Joslin to see all of the Bionic things. I don’t know what I can say. It’s not my story to tell. My child wasn’t there getting all suited up with the coolest thing in Betesdom. But wow. I love that thing. The people making it are so smart and nice.
And they use this tape to hold Dexcom sensors on. Which has these slogans on its adhesive backside.
