Not that I can wear it out of the house. Not without looking like some sort of perverted pathetic dork, anyway.
But I guess I could wear it around inside the house.
No. That wouldn’t work either. I’m sure my wife would be quick to point out that I look some sort of perverted pathetic dork there too.
Anyway, let me tell you about it.
It’s about three inches in diameter and hangs on a blue ribbon.
Can you guess what it is?
Nope. Not an Olympic Medal. Good guess, though. But who are we kidding? I’m hardly an athlete. (And no, it’s not a Senior Olympics Medal, either.)
I got this medal in the one area where I’m truly talented.
No. Not a hot dog eating contest.
No. Not for binge drinking.
No. Not for swearing in a public place.
OK. I guess I do have more than one talent.
Not for photography.
Not for teaching.
Think letters, and words, and sentences! Oh my!
Yep. Now you’ve got it! It’s a writing award!
Beyond Fingersticks, my Continuous Glucose Monitoring “bible” just won a finalist medal in the Health/Wellness category of the 2011 Next Generation Indie Book Awards!
And if you’re not supposed to wear it, then why does it come on a ribbon? Hmmmmm….. I’ll bet Gary Hall, Jr. wears his medals around in the house.
Late at night.
After his wife goes to bed.
