Field Trip: State House, but most eagerly-anticipated part = pit stop @Burger King.
How was the field trip?
It was pretty bad. They had Domino’s pizza for everyone.
Why was there pizza if you were going to Burger King?
Not the teachers, the government people got it for us. For a surprise. They had pizza for all of the kids and I just had to watch them all eat. I hated it. (Wistfully.) I never even got to have a Domino’s pizza.
Was the government part okay? Did you like seeing the State House?
How was Burger King?
It was okay. I got the caramel sundae.
How was that?
Actually it was terrible, because the Burger King cashier called me a brat.
I ordered the caramel sundae. And I paid and then I waited, and then she gave me a Reese’s peanut butter pie.
And so I said, “I’m really really sorry, but I didn’t order this—” you know, because I couldn’t even eat that pie and I already took insulin for the sundae. And she said THIS IS WHAT YOU ORDERED. And I said, “I’m sorry. I really didn’t order it. I ordered a caramel sundae, remember?” And she said OH NO YOU DID NOT. CARAMEL, NO YOU DID NOT. And then she complained really loudly to her co-worker THIS BRAT OVER HERE IS MAKING ME WASTE A PERFECTLY GOOD SLICE OF REESE’S PIE. And then she gave me the sundae but she frowned at me then I was really sad and embarrassed.
And that made me remember the last field trip, to the ropes course, when the instructor thought my pump was an iPod and made me an example of bad behavior in front of everyone and said SOME PEOPLE THINK THEY DON’T HAVE TO FOLLOW THE RULES LIKE THIS LITTLE GENTLEMAN WITH THE IPOD. And then when I was climbing, she made me get down off the wall because of my medical ID bracelet and she grabbed my wrist and said YOU THINK IT’S ‘COOL’ TO WEAR A BRACELET BUT YOU ARE ENDANGERING EVERYONE ON THE COURSE! ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?
Sad, funny? Both? Maybe only sad. Persons ridiculous. Of course, vitriol quantity expressed in Bubs’s impersonation of BK cashier & ropes course instructor may be exaggerated. But hatred of field trips = 100% real. Hope willing try again.
This morning Bigfoot fasting BG 91mg/dL! Ha! Reign of 120-130 OVER! However, instead of happy, thought oh my gah thank the heavens I didn’t go to the Diabetes Unconference.
