OH MY GOD HOW CAN YOU NOT PUT A TRIGGER WARNING ON THAT VIDEO???!!! EEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeee… <plop>

<long pause>

Okay, didn’t have a paper bag handy but I breathed into my shirt and I’m fine now, thank you so much! Anyway! Yes, Classical Sass and I have chatted about insulin and sugars and yes, she has got big brass ones compared to me. Meanwhile I’m betting on the greed of Big Pharma to come up with the first reliable oral insulin treatment; I’m also hoping Apple gets that blood glucose monitor built into the Apple Watch soon, because I’ll be a customer. (Yes, I know, lancets have little itsy bitsy teensy needles and it only takes a micro-liter of blood for a sample. Shut up. You and my phlebotomist can go off and laugh yourselves silly over a beer.) [Actually my phlebotomist is amazing with a needle; when she says, “You may feel a pinch,” I only feel a pinch! As opposed to the baboons with rubber gloves at a blood drive who left BOTH my inside elbows black & blue as they hunted for a vein.]

ANYway… thanks for the concern, Jim. And Deb absolutely ADORES your new avatar with the GIF of your granddaughter.
