I was noticing the other day that my husband and I share certain phrases between each other that, when overheard by friends and family, are quite . . . odd:
- "I'm high. I need to shoot up."
- "I need to check my BS level. . . . No, the other kind."
- "Ow, ow, ow! Move over! You're on my pump."
- "Honey, I'm normal! . . . No, just my blood sugar."
- "I'm low and PMSing! So just leave me alone."
- "I need to change Arnold before we leave." (If friends are over, they look for a little boy in diapers, lol.)
- "Alright! Who drank my ejuice (emergency juice, mine only, no touchies)?"
- "Hold on, I need to turn down my basal before we start our walk."
- "The cats are playing with my site cap, again."
- BOOP-BEEP-BOOP "Arnold's paging you."
- "I have diabeetus." (reference to diabeetus guy from Liberty Medical, he makes us both laugh)
and finally . . .
- "I'm low." Trey: "I'll get the cookies . . ." He sees my lows as an opportunity to indulge. Not sure that's a good thing. :-/
Anyone have some more good diabetes liners?
"I need to shoot up" is one of my favorites. :)ReplyDelete
I get "You're beeping again." from lots of people.
I say "My pump's yelling at me again."
"I feel high" is sorta funny...and the "low" mumbles which sound like I am drunk!! "chriisssth..Is needs some does gloooocose tabss..."!ReplyDelete
@April: Haha, love it! I, too, sound like I'm drunk when I'm low. Even stumbling a bit. I'm a lot like Gollum from LOTR looking for sugar. "Precious, sugar, where is!" =DReplyDelete
I don't have any good one liners. But sometimes when Matt and I are play wrestling I say "OW MY PUMP!" and trick him into letting go before I attack him. I know...its shameless. Diabetes should be good for somethin' though!ReplyDelete
@Brenda W: OMG, I'm so gonna use that! I also say, "Honey, I can't help you in the yard, I'm kinda low." So so wrong! }:-)ReplyDelete
I love when when daughter walks into a room of adults and yells "I'm high" LOLReplyDelete
Low + PMS is always a bad combo. Throw too much wine into the mix (as I did last night) and it becomes a disaster.ReplyDelete
Hahaha, those are pretty funny. And yup, I say them all the time too - especially "I was high all night long". Always sounds so funny when you think about it. I don't have any good diabetes lines to add - but we were cooking over the weekend and I said something to Pete like "you'll have to beat it later". Yeah, I was talking about the cake batter, but it just sounded really wrong and we both burst out laughing. ;)ReplyDelete
