Oh that's great!
On Friday I was at a meeting (of diabetics, various types) and there was a young chap (well probably mid 30's LOL, a comparative infant!) there - heavily into technology and puter programing, actually working on some project for us - but we were all there in our personal capacity.
Over lunch I saw him showing his meter to his neighbour and recognised it immediately so crept up behind him, unhooked my pump from my waistband, put it in his hand and said 'Snap'. We all laughed and then he turned slightly to show his was on his waistband on the other side of him. Whereupon I exclaimed Crikey - you're not still using that blooming awful perspex clip are you? - why don't you get a skin for it like this which has a much flatter clip? He hadn't looked at the website and didn't know they did them. I said mine was free with the pump but they are only about £7 or something anyway - I'd try cadging one next time you ring up for supplies if I were you! Far superior to the other thing.
So it sort of makes your day doesn't it, cheers you up etc to have a conversation with someone random where you both realise that the other person recognises and appreciates whatever it is?
And of course, that comment really would spur anyone on, in a race and put a renewed spring in their step - it's amazing what small things can do that LOL (Like when it's warm and you have to run past eg burger vans, even ice-cream vans pumping out more heat and then just the other side there's a slightly downhill bit and just a touch of breeze - or when it's grey, muggy and still and it starts to dirizzle just at the point when you are wondering if you can do it after all! Lovely! ROFL
