I am the diabetes police and I want to retire
Sunday, December 11, 2011
I'm married to an actor who does a lot of community theater. Last evening, he was in a local holiday play. It ended at 10:30 pm. He came out excitedly to introduce me to several other cast members who had decided to go out for "Oreo Sliders" at the local pub-type restaurant. Could we go? Huge sized Oreo chocolate cookies filled with huge portions of ice cream. He was practically drooling.
I put on a huge smile and said, "I'm so sorry; you're talking to family of diabetics. Hubby could have a serious problem if he indulges in pure sugar this late at night with his adrenalin still pumping. "
I could tell that it came across as rude even though it saved hubby from doing something stupid.
