28% Interested (a.k.a. Distracted!)

I recently had a dream that I was attending the ‘Design of Medical Devices‘ conference at the University of Minnesota.  I had no idea such a thing existed until somebody signed me up to their mailing list. I was hoping for a free invitation, but nothing ever came of it.  Must have been someone’s idea of advertising.

In my dream, I was sitting at a table with a number of other people, all of us listening to presentations.  One guy had designed a wireless blood sugar interest monitor.  That’s right, interest.  As in, how interested are you with your current blood sugar?

It looked just like a wireless router, hanging high on the wall just above a light, and it was giving this guy a readout of everyone at the table.

Sketch of my dream image

0% interested, 0.01% interested, 0% interested, then he got to me.  28% interested.  Almost a third of my active brainpower was being consumed just worrying about my blood sugar.

I know it was just a dream, but I’d say there’s a pretty good slice of reality in there somewhere.
