Blood. Money. Diabetes. Baby.

A little Monday Madness. Come on, sing along! You know the tune.

Working so hard every night and day
And never see the pay back
Trying so hard saving up the paper
Can we ever lay back?
Lamb_pic_2
Low-carb kisses hold me in your lap of luxury
I only want to fly first class, my pump’s my limousine
So elegant the way we test, our jabs just multiply
There’s a non-invasive dream in the sky
Look I’m livin’ like a queen

This kind of love is getting expensive
We know how to live baby
We’re courageous like sick lions
We’re so rich in love we’re rollin’ in test strips
Got it in fifth gear baby
Novolog in the vial is lookin’ so sparkly

Sugar, honey, sexy baby
When we touch it turns to HIGH
Sensitive and delicate kinda like an infusion site
You know you are my parasite
It’s pure perfection that I miss
You’re my burden… I’m your slave
Gonna be until we’re old

This kind of love is getting expensive
We know how to live baby
We’re “compliant” like Egyptian captives

Cha-ching cha-ching we’re loaded and we’re gonna blow it (sometime soon)
Cha-ching cha-ching we’re hooked up with the insulin ’cause we can’t grow it
Cha-ching cha-ching we got hypochondriac love so we’re not smokin’
Cha-ching cha-ching we bolus, you and I — we are so ‘on it’

We’re so rich in love were rollin’ in test strips
Got it in fifth gear baby
A1c in the rough is lookin’ so frustratin’

Working so hard every night and day
And never see the pay back
Trying so hard saving up the paper
When can we ever lay back?

    I was giggling because, one, I love Gwen, and two, that pic, however UN-gracefully Photoshopped, was completely cracking me up. Nice one.

    Yeah, Hannah, no time for fancy photo editing, I’m afraid. Besides, everybody who knows me knows I never actually wear hot pants in real life ;)

    It’s all about the clipping path, Amy. ;) Thank you for this post, though – hilarious and just what I needed on a Monday! :)
