That's my gal

Overheard conversation, 8:30 am, school playground


Grace's friend: What is that on your bottom? I mean, like, what is it?

Grace: It's my Pod. It's a pump.

Friend: You mean like it pumps you up? Like what pump?

Grace: An INSULIN pump. It's on my bottom. It gives me insulin.

Friend: Why do you need insulin?

Grace: Well, you know, I would like to keep on livin.' I need insulin. I need air. I need gum. I need cool shoes. I need water right now. I need insulin.

Friend: Do I need insulin? I mean, like I don't know if I have insulin.

Grace: YOU have insulin. It's in your body. I don't have insulin. My insulin is in my Pod.
YOUR Pod is called a pancreas.
