A favorite movie quote:Young boy: "That's not a metaphor, that's a simile. 'Laying pipe' is a metaphor."
Props to anyone who can name that movie.
On the spot, the first thing that lept into my mind was that controlling one's diabetes is kinda like trying to type with boxing gloves
Perhaps...Mittens might be a better analogy, and may imply a little bit more precision, too.
Scott's favorite quote about diabetes is:
"Diabetes is like being expected to play the piano with one hand while juggling items with another hand, all while balancing with deftness and dexterity on a tightrope"
- Marlene Less, 1983.
So put your creative hats on and let's here it in your words! How would you describe this ridiculously complex endeavor of manually controling a cellular process?
