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.
