I am new, both to this forum and to the "club" that no one want to join. Yes, I'm talking about Club T2 (sounds a whole lot sexier than it is). But since I received my membership card, I've been hoping for some bennies. After all, American Express does claim that "Membership Has its Privileges." Here's some that I thought could be good ones:
- Frequent Flyer miles for every time your blood sugar is 130 or below.
Discounts on socks (I heard that the traditional variety with tight bands aren't good for your feet).
- A DE (designated eater) - someone who consumes and absorbs sugars and carbohydrates, but passes the flavor and satisfaction on to you. I would rather not give up my cannoli and chocolate eclairs.
Free insulin. After all, it isn't OUR fault that we don't have enough. So there must be folks with insulin to spare. I think it's just good manners to share.
- Carbohydrate-free carbohydrates. We put men on the moon and supercomputers in our pockets. Carbs seem to be as big a problem as global warming, and there are lots of folks all over that. It's high time that our great minds start working on this one.
- Free towels. No particular reason for this one; I've just always wanted someone to hand me a nice warm towel, no charge. Being Type 2 seems as good a reason as any to finally get them.
I hope, at least, that we get free lockers and pool privileges - it always got on my nerves to pay extra for those.
Here's to the adventure!
