Hy-Vee has the seasonal candy out so I thought it would be good to decorate some pancreas ex vivos accordingly. Here’s one to wear right now, when the leaves are perfect.
Here’s one for Halloween.
Here’s a more festive and permissive Thanksgiving design.
This is for post-Thanksgiving, during the family arguments.
Here’s one for the jeans-and-a-dressy-top holiday party.
This is for the rest of winter on the long blue nights that are good for walking.
I mean really good for walking, better than summer. One time I was a research subject in a grad student’s study about weight training and diabetes. He told me if people would exercise outdoors as much in the winter as in the summer, they’d feel great, because your body works harder in the cold. He would say that kind of thing while he handed me barbells and shouted “you can do it!” It was wonderful. He was studying to be a personal trainer. I don’t know where he is now. If he were to get in touch and request a line of stick-on insulin pumps decorated to fire people up for winter walking and healthy holiday eating and responsible martini consumption, and whatever else, for sale at Hy-Vee next to candy corn and Christmas Peeps, I would be game.
