Sitting in the hair salon a day before my trip, listening to a rousing round of American Idol trivia/chatter:
"So many of 'em were a bunch of geeks, but boy, could some of those geeks sing!"
"Yeah, like Elliott (Yamin). When I first saw that guy, I thought, 'Come on, you're kidding me!' But he turned out really good — and he was so cute with his Mom."
(Me, unable to resist): "Yeah, you know he wears an insulin pump. That kind of devotion to your mom comes from a real fight for survival together."
(Hairdresser, obviously clueless): "Yeah, when I first saw him, I thought he looked pale and sickly, and then they came out with the diabetes thing, and I thought, 'Right, that explains it.'"
*Sigh* followed by silence through the blow-dry and payment phases. Here's hoping where I'm going the company will be a lot better informed — and not just about diabetic mice.
