- The first post is a tear jerker. I certainly understand where George is coming from when you're fighting a low but trying to be discreet at the same time. His poem about a stranger who offered him a granola bar (without guilt) really tugs at my heart strings, especially the part when he said "And not every person you meet in the world is a member of the Diabetes Police." I wish everyone had that much compassion. Great post, George!
- This next post is just funny, absolutely funny. It's about a rubber duckie that goes on a beach trip with Chris. Every picture gave me a giggle, but the one about Duckie having crabs made me let out a huge guffah! Very creative, Chris!
- Jacquie does a great internal dialogue (or at least I hope it was internal) post about her . . . interesting yoga class and its participants. I can say that I couldn't get over the idea of exercising your sphincter. So, so funny.
- Kim does a great post about a confessional to her Father Diabetes about some of her "sins" involving diabetes management. I think everyone in the DOC has experienced all of these at one point or another. Guilt, it's the ultimate complication.
- And finally, Kerri posted a video this morning about her pregnancy with an interview with Johnson&Johnson. Kerri does a great interview, but the ultimate jewel of the video is some action of BSparl. I had to watch it twice because the first time I kept staring at BSparl and forgot to listen! (Sorry Kerri . . . )

Friday Five: 27 August 2010
Once again, it's been a stellar week among the DOC (diabetic online community). There have been several posts that have made me life and (nearly) cry. Enjoy!
