Sweet!

The nurse left me a voice mail yesterday. I do not have THE DIABETES! Woo hoo!

Bring on the sugar and carbs!

I kid, I kid.

Sorta.

"Hi, I'm Wilfred Brimley, and I have diabetes. It hurts me to pee, and it causes me to be short with my family. I can't sleep at night. The other day, I stubbed my toe and took it out on the dog. And two weeks ago, I ran out of vanilla ice cream and struck my wife. Then I find out my wife's been dead for six years. Who the hell did I hit?" - Wilfred Brimley, Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story

    Have you noticed in those Wilford Brimley commercials that he doesn't even pronounce diabetes correctly? He says "Di-a-beet-us."

  11. Oh sweet! Let's hear it for not having the diabeetus! Daddy Dan beat me to it. But Wilfred Brimley ALWAYS says "the diabeeetus".

    Congratulations on being diabeetus-free!
