Today’s Prompt: Diabetes Bloopers
My funniest ever diabetes moment was with me and a friend at a restaurant.
It was summer and I had just gotten my pump that prior fall. I just found the thigh pump pouch, and wanted to wear a skirt. So I figured this was the best time to use it! I was very excited to put it on. We got to the restaurant and of course I had to use the bathroom because I have the bladder the size of a pea.
Anyhow, I started walking toward the bathroom when I felt my pump slowly falling down my leg and CLUNK. The pump fell right on the hardwood floor. Before I could even bend to pick it up a waiter had already beaten me to it. He handed it to me but, with a look of WTF in his face. The wire had pulled up my skirt as he handed it to me…. and the wire and my underwear were exposed. Of course this would only happen to me, and of course my friend was hysterically laughing at me because she saw the whole thing happen.
Moral of the story: don’t use the thigh pouch without it having some sort of apparatus attached to it to keep it up!!
