“All things being equal, diabetes-wise anyway, I much prefer to travel by car, bus, or train. Flying in the post-9/11 world is a pain in the ass.”
What did the stupid rabbit say in the 1951 Disney version of Alice? “I’m late! I’m late! For a very important date! No time to say hello, goodbye! I’m late! I’m late! I’m late!” In the actual book he apparently said: “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!”
God only knows what Disney will do to my writing when I’m dead (hard to imagine, isn’t it?) and apologies to Lewis Carroll’s ghost, but I actually think I like the Disney version better on this quote.
So I’m late to post today, and some of you were probably wondering if I’m marooned on a deserted island, or what. No, the truth is both more interesting and more frustrating. I’ve been marooned at San Francisco International Airport. Better than an island, but no Ginger and Mary Anne to keep me company—vote by comments men and lesbians—which Gilligan’s Island co-star would you rather have been marooned with? Oh and I didn’t ask you ladies and gay men, because there’s only one clear choice among the male stars for each of you.
From Alice in Wonderland, to stuck at an airport, to sex. All in under 200 words. Damn, I’m on a roll this morning.
Anyway, I’ve got a travel story or two for you about the Dexcom G4 and airport security, but it’s not written yet. That will have to wait for another day or two while I catch up on the millions things that didn’t get done while I was off on my travels. The problem with working 80 hours per week is that if you go somewhere for three days and get stuck somewhere for another day in route home, getting caught back up with your various responsibilities is nearly hopeless.
So today, I invite you to visit Diabetes Mine, where Amy just posted my summary review of the G-4 to date. It’s a bit more of a global look and there’s no sex or swearing, so you can even read it to your kids. The post summarizes what I think the strong, weak, and pointless points are, and answers the most important question: Should I get out my wallet?
