I know some people thought I was going to take a pass on today’s post and take one of the bonus options for today’s prompt. I choose to stick with the program. Granted this post should have come earlier in the day, but I was busy. That is all I can say. I was actually having fun, fun today.
Today’s prompt: Recently various petitions have been circulating the Diabetes Online Community, so today let’s pretend to write our own. Tell us who you would write the petition to – a person, an organization, even an object (animate or inanimate) – get creative!! What are you trying to change and what have you experienced that makes you want this change?
We, the undersigned People with Diabetes (PWDs) (well mainly me and a few others) and caregivers and loved ones of us do hereby petition the maker of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups to make their awesome treats carb free, but still taste awesome. I mean let’s be honest here. HOW AWESOME WOULD THAT BE??? I realize this is a pipe dream of mine, but I think this petition has a better chance of going through and being somewhat acknowledged.
Think about how awesome it would be though to be able to enjoy the yummy goodness of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup without having to worry about the adverse affects of eating one. I mean I would be happy as a pig in mud. Someone recently gave me this box and I was excited, but saddened that so much planning had to into making these bad boys disappear. So I want one that I can eat with no consequences. Fine give me the calories, I can run those off, but get rid of the carbs and none of that poop inducing sugar free stuff. This is what I want….
While we are at it, I want a petition for this is as well to be carb free.
