“How about something that is cheered up and happy?” She pointed to the image of the dark blue make-up bag I was considering buying from Amazon to serve as a new meter case. “That’s boring.”
“Good point. What would you prefer I use?”
Her tiny Bird-brow furrowed. “Maybe something with a face.”
Which brought us to this:
I’m an adult, with a job and responsibilities and a health condition that requires plenty of strokey-beard moments. I like meter cases that can hold all my junk without busting at the seams (glucose meter, lancing device, test strip bottle, extra lancets, a quarter to unscrew the battery cap on my pump, an extra AA battery, and an insulin pen). Regular-sized meter cases don’t do it for me, and I usually sub in a make-up bag or a pencil case. Until recently, I preferred makeshift meter cases that were basic and black, wanting my diabetes supplies to be housed in something innocuous.
Which makes my new meter case such a departure, because I’ve never had a supply bag that outright grinned at me all day long. I was reluctant at first, but now I like it.
“See, mawm? It’s all cheered-up!”
So cheered up.
