I have to admit it: I have a diabetes crush. He is funny, upbeat, realistic, and is easy to identify with. I've watched all his dLife segments and I think I speak for the entire dLife editorial team when i say, "Jim Turner ... sigh ... he's the best!"
And he came into the office on Friday, just in time to see us all decked out in our Halloween finest. (Note: I managed to ditch the red riding hood cape for the picture, but others weren't as quickly uncostumed. The coworker on my left doesn't usually have this fluffy hairdo, for example.)
Jim Turner has been living with type 1 diabetes for several decades now, but you wouldn't know by looking at him. He looks healthy, seems happy, and has a wicked sense of humor that makes you giggle at things you didn't even realize were potentially funny. If laughter is the best medicine, then Jim might be the ultimate endocrinologist.
And of course he comes in on a day when we're all dressed up like goof balls.
Thanks for entertaining us for the afternoon, Jim. We remain your loyal fans!!
