W is for Wilford Brimley

Pissed!
Wilford Brimley is pissed.

Why you ask? Because you have been slacking.

"But Shay", you say, "I have been working all day. I come home, take care of my family and then do my A-Z challenge like a good little blogger."

Well, let me ask you this: When was the last time you checked your blood sugar?

See, that's what I thought!

Seriously, can someone tell me why he is so pissed off? I will be sitting in my living room, watching TV, not bothering anyone, then BAM! there he is on my screen, with his red, bulldog like face and his overgrown, furry caterpiller mustache all up in my business, like a total hard ass telling me, "You check your blood sugar and you check it often! There's no reason not to."

Excuse me Mr. Brimley, but I do have a valid reason not to: I don't have diabetes. So, why are you going all postal and yelling at me?

Do you get paid on every diabetes or as you say, "dibeetus", kit you sell? Are you pissed because you have to prick your fingers and think everyone should suffer and feel your pain?

All I know is I don't come into your living room and make you suffer the same things I have to go through. Have I ever gotten pissy with you and demanded, "You get a pap smear and you get it often!" I didn't think so!

I don't know why you are so angry. Maybe you are mad that you can't eat things with sugary goodness or maybe you are upset because Our House got cancelled.

All I know is you better back off, Brim or I will start spiking your food with pixie stix. So, Mr. Brimley, you check your blood sugar and you check it often and leave me in piece to eat my Reese's peanut butter cups! You don't scare me!

Well maybe a little... seriously, what is with that mustache?

    1. Oh you so do! But be warned...it's pretty scary. Wilford has a way of making you feel like a bad, bad girl.

    1. Well wouldn't you be upset if you couldn't drink your Tab...or pronounce diabeetus?

  4. *giggles* I love the mustachioed kitty! HE should be peddling diabetes supplies - I'd totally buy them out of principal (and general nonsensical entertainment)!

    As for Mr. Brimley, I'm pretty sure he was BORN irate.... which makes me curious: if HE'S marketable as a crotchety old f*ck, perhaps there's hope for me? *smile*

  5. He's pissed because he just got back from the hairdresser and got his mustache trimmed, and no one noticed. Not even one compliment.

    1. LOl, Not the hairdresser...the dog groomer! Uh, I mean CAT groomer;)

  6. That cat scares me. Seriously. It looks like the kind of cat that eats people's faces.

    I can't disagree with the guy about sugar. Not that I think you need to go around testing yourself all the time, but... well, sugar is bad.

    1. Yeah, but when you are as sweet as Wilford, you can't help but have diabeetus.

      And I totally agree with you about the cat. And for some crazy reason, I also think he looks like he would speak German.

  8. Shit your good Shay, I was trying to think of a way to spell "diabeetus" when I was skimming your post and saw it...

    Touche.

  9. It's because of scary people like Wilf that I no longer watch tv live - just on the DVR so I can skip through the ads. Thank you for reminding me not to watch it live anytime soon!

    1. No problem. I am here to remind you of the dangers of every day TV and of terrible mustaches.

  10. Maybe he's mad that he has the crappy kind of bifocals and can't even see which finger he's pricking or who he's talking to?

    1. Oooooo, maybe that is why his mustache looks like that! he can't see to trim it and it is tickling his nose and gathering food! Good call on the bifocals, Andre:)

  11. Is it weird that I kinda have an old man crush on Wilford? I have always wanted a grandpa like him to make me oatmeal...

    1. All I can say, Jana is "Yes." It is TERRIBLY weird.LOL He looks like he would shove your face in the oatmeal and yell, "Eat It! Eat it! Do you want to get diabeetus? Than EAT IT!!!!"

  12. I do have T2 Diabetes. And to be honest, I don't check as often as I should. I take my meds, and adjust when I feel like it's off, and check when I know it's REALLY off. Period. And Wilfred can just go prick himself.

    1. Oh no! I think so. There have been rumors about him dying, but they are always proved false. I think you're still good!LOL

  14. I am ever closer to being Wilford Brimley with each passing day. I hope to be a less angry one. But I will never be the one who starred in The Thing in 1982.

    1. Be careful...if you ever find yourself yelling at kids to stay off your grass and yelling at people about diabeetus, you may have Wilford Brimley syndrome.If so, stop what you're doing and immediately eat a candy bar and do something fun;)

  15. Growing up, I always wished Wilford Brimley was my grandpa. He was so cool and calm.

    1. See, I think you are all nuts. I always saw him as mean ang grumpy. I would have preferred Leslie Neilson or Milton Berle to be my grandpa. They seem funny and nice. And Betty White would be my Grandma - no contest!
