    Your GPS flashes a red 59 indicating you are going over the 55 mph speed limit and you automatically think OMG...she's having a low! (Totally looked like a Dex Alarm).

    We have a weather thermometer that has trending arrows. I asked my daughter what the temp was and she said 75 with an up arrow :)

    you go in while she is sleeping to check her BG and she has her hand holding her tubing (in her sleep) much like boys hold their "package"!

    That is my life in a nutshell. I found like 15-20 of my test strip brand in an alleyway off my campus's Main Street, and I never recall testing there or having my garbage tin open. Either I have a really bad memory, or I think I found another diabetic on campus. I also found my cat playing with a test strip in my bedroom (when I never test there).

    you buy a new purse and spy a zipper pocket on the inside and think, "this will be perfect for back up supplies".

    :D :D :D :D that is sooooooo funny.
    My husband and I were having a conversation a few days ago about how Samantha "shoots up in the morning, and she gets so high it is difficult to bring her back down." In horror he stated, "Omg, what if someone heard us talking like this about our four year old?????" Hahahahahaaaaaa!

    LOL. I've thought about that too when saying something like "She was high all night long"

    We've had the situation where my husband will say "it was 3:50" (meaning the time) and I say "did you give a correction?"

    When you read car number plates in terms of blood sugars. Saw one that ended in 357 today and thought 'that's high.' Even weirder since I'm not in the US, so we don't use those numbers.

    ... when you find yourself saying things like "I'm sorry you don't want to eat your ice cream, but if you don't we're going to have to give you some sugar tablets."

    You look at your coworkers lunch and tell them the carb count.

    Your other non-D disabled daughter's diaper. I'm just glad I found it and they didn't find it at school when they were changing her.
