Diabetes Blog Week: Day 3 - Diabetes Bloopers

DBlogWeek2011Banner


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: Diabetes Bloopers
“...share your Diabetes Blooper
- your 'I can't believe I did that' moment
- your big 'D-oh' and let's all have a good laugh together.








I needed to buy glucose tabs. I was in a store, searching the shelves. I couldn't find them. They weren't in their usual spot.
So I walked up to the pharmacy counter, and I asked, "Excuse me, can you please tell me where the blucose tablets are?"
Yes, I said blucose! Not, glucose with a G, but blucose with a B, the way my five-year-old does!
I'm sure my face turned red with embarrassment.
The pharmacy tech was kind enough to ignore my oops and point me in the right direction.

At the moment when Bug says 'grandpa' it sounds like 'crap-pa' and Ubergeek just loves that she's calling his dad 'crap-pa' he repeats it as often as possible!!
