Not a life or death situation...but I just dropped my bottle of Humalog in the kitchen, where there is a 75% chance that it will break on the tile floor. Simply too many casualties to count over the years...oh and that skinny Lantus bottle...make it a 90% chance of breakage. Don't even get me started on that insulin smell...yuck.

Luckily because of my ninja-like reflexes, I was able to save the doomed bottle by breaking the fall with a supple hacky sack foot stall...score!!!

Some may say that I'm a modern day diabetic hero. Maybe I am...maybe I'm not. I just did what any sugary red blooded diabetic would have done in the situation.

My Nana used to tell me that whenever a bottle of insulin breaks, an angel loses his wings.

Well you just keep on flying little angel...this one's on me.

I'm Dino, and I approve this message.

I can picture it in slow-motion; sort of like The Matrix, right? You've done us all proud!

What music should it be set to? Flight of the Valkyries? Believe it or not? Matrix techno?

PLEASE don't try that with a large fire extinguisher. i did a few years back. it landed on my big toe. it hit so hard that it popped the toe nail right out and broke my toe. the good part was that i couldn't work for about a week and a half. my shoe wouldn't fit. i was at work and it must have been very funny watching this woman jump around pounding the counters and saying darn, darn, darn, because she didn't want to swear in a public place. my boss came out and asked me if i was ok. i said sure, i'll just walk this off and get back to work. then they saw all the blood coming out of the seams of my sneakers. they sent me to the doctor's. he sent me home.
