OK, I too am suffering from Diabetes Blog Week withdrawal. I find myself still trolling Twitter trying to discover more great posts that I missed. In particular, it seems last Saturday's planned "wild card" topic — brag about your triumph or commiserate about your D-blooper — got changed at the last minute to a collection of diabetes snapshots. Which I loved. Too bad for me though, because I had a really good blooper to share.
Undoubtedly my most "moronic moment":
Generally, my bloopers have to do with putting my foot in my mouth, one way or another. Please read my "true confession" post Life's Like This for a case where I extended that great talent to the diabetes sphere. (Warning: that post contains profanity.)
And there was also that time I fell off my spin bike.
And that other time I attempted to go hot-tubbing with my OmniPod on my thigh.
And of course I STILL get sloppy sometimes.
I noticed that one other blogger, Piquant Story Teller, shared a blooper, too: Mistaking your pump worries for some *other* devices in the house.
Now I really do wonder: What kind of D-bloopers would you all have shared, if called upon?? Feel free to pontificate in the comments section, below.
Meanwhile, about those snapshots...
And here's a list of links offering a smattering of the many D-Blog Week photo montages I mentioned — so neat to see many D-bloggers faces (and family & friends, and other details) in real-life situations:

So, anyone got any D-bloopers to share? Words AND pictures are welcome.
