For the record, you can blame Kim for this.
“You know what I would enjoy? A really well done satire site focused solely on diabetes. Like The Onion, except… The Cinnamon? Someone create this, please.”
Naturally, I couldn’t resist – so I checked Tumblr for URL options and ended up with the-cinnamon.tumblr.com.
The idea is simple: find a stereotype, assumption, or nugget of truth and then add a hefty dose of satire with a side of silly.
To give you an idea of what you’re in for, try this:
Local college student achieves spiritual enlightenment at 2 AM while treating low blood sugar with Gushers, leftover cheesecake, a big glob of peanut butter, and Kool-Aid; wakes up with stomachache and no recollection of her revelations.
I think it’s important to celebrate, and sometimes enhance, the silly side of this disease. I’m all for any opportunity to add some levity to the situation. I know diabetes is serious, but it doesn’t have to be a downer all the time.
The real beauty of The Cinnamon comes from the fact that all of these “stories” are from you, the diabetes community. You can submit headlines and stories any time. Give it a shot. You might like it!
