Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the awesomely fast Indy Car race at Watkins Glen, NY. This little beauty was being driven by AJ Foyt IV, and yes, it is sponsored by Lilly. I do not remember the exact message on the car, but it was something about diabetes being a journey.
Ha, a journey with no end, I thought. An endless race around a long track where no one hops out to wave the checkered flag.
I was quite amused by the great Lilly racer. "Insulin! Wooooooo!!" I yelled out at least once as the car zoomed by.
Somewhere around lap 48 or 50, the show was over for AJ Foyt IV and his Lilly car. Somebody tapped him, and the car itself was completely done for. As they hooked the racecar up to the back of the tow truck, I announced to Matt, "Well, it figures. When I hit 50, I generally want to crash out too." You know, meaning 50 mg/dl?
Look, we both thought it was hilarious. Hopefully it's enough to bring a smile to your face today.
And unrelated to insulin or Indy Cars, I am posting this blog entry from my new laptop! Hooray! Dell called this one a "scratch & dent", but the scratches are so small, who even cares? It just looks like I've had this computer for a few months instead of a few hours. I'm just happy to have a bit of computer to call mine!
This also hopefully means more frequent blog updates! Huzzah! It's late as crap, I should go to bed. I'll be talking to you more often now, so don't fret!
