Hey All, Michelle actually jumped on my original idea, which was to host an official contest for the best Seven Words of Wisdom for Living with Diabetes. See my start at the end of this morning's post.
You may or may not be familiar with Michael Pollan's book "In Defense of Food" and his famous 7-word manifesto: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.
Tons of people have jumped on this idea, and the New York Times even hosted a popular do-it-yourself "Seven Words" contest back in January. Some winners I loved were:
Drink water. Eat your veggies. Love Mom.
Smile often. Laugh out loud. Share joy.
Make promises. Don't break them. Find loopholes.
What have you all got for living with diabetes? I am prepared to pass out prizes, including those coveted DiabetesMine T-shirts and Know Your Numbers books.
** UPDATE 3/19/08 **
I'm keeping the contest open till the end of the week. Then I'm going to print out all the entries and throw darts at them to select the winners. Just kidding. Still, winners shall be selected. Thank you in advance for your wit & wisdom, All.
