I'm participating in Diabetes Blog Week, a week in which bloggers create daily posts revolving around a set topic. Thank you Karen from Bitter-Sweet Diabetes for starting this awesome idea last year and continuing it this year!
Today’s topic: Letter Writing Day
“Whomever you choose as a recipient,
today is the day to tell them what you are feeling."
We love your test strips. We really, truly do. Yes, sometimes, we cheat on you when we get freebie OneTouch strips, but you're our fave. You're the one who stocks our supply cabinet. You're the one we buy month after month.
We love your pointy, tiny tabs that wick blood lickety split. We love that you never give us an Error 5. We love how little blood you need. We love that there's no messing with codes. We love the little light at the end of our FreeStyle meter that helps us to test Jack's blood in the dark. We love your FreeStyle Promise Program.
You rock, FreeStyle! You da bomb!
But we have a little question for the powers that be: when you redesigned your strips to their current state of awesomeness, why did you have to include your butterfly?
Now, we have nothing against your logo. We like butterflies.
But, you know, when you're a typical seven-year-old boy, you'd rather have no design on your strip than a butterfly.
It's kind of embarrassing to pull out your girly strip at school. Kids can be cruel, you know.
Remember your old design, the one that just said FreeStyle? Here, let me show you.
