I just knew it

13 02 2008

Although I am currently working, I came upon an opportunity to apply for a job at a different company. I had my interview yesterday and, of course, diabetes was there too.

I resigned myself to wearing Lucy on my pants as normal because there would be no other good place to hide her (damn womens clothes for lacking pockets!). My suit jacket was long enough and just big enough to hide Lucy without being obvious at all. Small victory. =)

I had eaten around 12pm and the interview was at 2. I figured I’d test right around 1:50 before actually talking to people so I could treat a high or low as the case may be. Additionally, that would turn off my 2-hour-after alarm so I wouldn’t be beeping in the middle of the interview.

Well, my frantic test yielded a 55. WTF?!?! I knew I should have done an extended bolus for the Chinese food at lunch. Damn it! I scarfed down 4 Starburst, set a 85% temp rate for the duration of the interview, turned off my low reminder alert so I wouldn’t beep again 20 minutes later, and switched the beep to vibrate.

All this, so I wouldn’t look like a retard during the interview. Of course, I’m pretty sure I still managed to do that anyway. Read the rest of my non-D-related interview story on my regular blog.
