It is, quite simply, a tradition for me. For as long as I can remember, and for as long as I’m around, Christmas eve will have at least one constant.
I know the characters. I know the props (even down to the cloth fake dog tail stuck in the door…). I know the lines. I’ve got my kids repeating parts of the story. I’ve been known, at any time, to pop a VHS tape in that I recorded during the 24-hour marathon on TBS. I swear I could watch the movie non-stop, forever.
I know there are others of you out there. And the rest of you probably hate the movie. That’s the way it goes with this type of thing.
A sign of my addiction to this movie is that I’ve been able to draw analogies between the movie and my life with diabetes. I would probably score that one in the “Bad Signs” category…
In this case it is Low Blood Sugar.
And his buddy, Rebound High.
Their only pleasure in life is stalking and tormenting victims at every opportunity.
You see that? Low Blood Sugar working to pry a submission to its evil will (which is to eat everything in sight, even if all you need is a single gram of carbohydrate…), and Rebound High patiently waiting for his turn later…
They are the best of buddies, these two.
But it is always Low Blood Sugar that starts the trouble.
But we all know what happened…
Happy holidays everyone!
