As of 12:01 a.m....
The Countdown is officially over!
I am 21!
Here are a couple pics that my friend Justin took last night at Shari's (Shari's a local diner chain that we practically grew up at. We know most of the waiters. And the manager knows us by name- in a good way).
My friend Julia and me.
Me with my birthday sundae (and my friend Freddy).
While we were sitting at Shari's and talking, my friend Julia noticed my I.D. bracelet and starting looking at it, because she wasn't sure what it was. Then my friend Justin suggested that there should be a "diabetic symbol."
"Like the Jesus fish," he said.
And then Julia came up with the bright idea to have a secret handshake.
"A secret handshake?" I asked.
"Yeah, you know, like if you saw someone and you thought they were diabetic but you weren't sure you could go 'I wonder if they know the secret handshake' and then you'd know," she explained.
Because, of course, simply asking someone is so passe.
I told them I would bring the suggestions back to My People. So, there you go.
Or maybe since this is an "online community" we should simply have a secret password...
