The Junior Mints
"So," she admitted, "we stopped at the store on the way home. I had 50 cents, and I was tired of glucose tabs."
She'd been hovering between definitively low and low-ish all day. A couple of juice boxes, a half-bolused lunch and half a roll of glucose tabs later she texted me before walking home. "78!"
Knowing she had no snack with her, I suggested a couple more glucose tabs to keep her upright until she got home. She had other ideas.
"They had those little boxes of Junior Mints for 25 cents. There were 5 in a box. It seemed perfect. I hope you're not mad."
"It seems to have turned out well...your blood sugar is perfect now. Did you enjoy them?"
"Yeah. But then I was looking at something and I spilled 3 of them. I still had 25 cents so I went back in the store and got another box. I ended up eating 7 of them altogether."
Seinfeld got it just right. Junior mints are easy to spill, very refreshing, and might even contain curative properties.
