i mean, i can think of a few kinda funny times ...
the first day i had my pump. i was going out to dinner with my parents, i had shorts on. i hadn't really had time to experiment with where to wear my pump and shove the tubing yet. as i was putting shoes on, sitting at the kitchen table, my dad says 'you have something hanging out of your shorts.' ohhh, that'd be like 48 inches of tubing just hangin' out. whoopsie.
and of course there's always the good 'ol 'is that a pager?' ...yes, it is 2011. that is my pager. or 'is that one of those microphone boxes?' yep, i'm on a reality show ALL DAY EVERY DAY! this is my life. (can you imagine? how boring that show would be. haha)
i had some friends who called me the bionic woman in college, i guess that was kind of entertaining.
and there was the time that helped me name my blog.
i guess the biggest 'blooper' that stands out for me is when people say 'dye-a-bee-tus.' it makes me cringe. (QUICK LESSON: it's dye-a-bee-tees. and i spelled it dye instead of die for reasons that seem obvious to me.) everyone knows that it drives me CRAZY, but what more can we do than reference wilford brimley? that's a guaranteed laugh every time.
...like when we name our JDRF walk team 'What Would Wilford Brimley Do?'
oh yes we did.
