- This week's Humorous Tidbit is: Four years ago, one of my daughters was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of three. Most phrases and medical terminology associated with diabetes are part of our family's vocabulary. I never realized just how deeply embedded these phrases are until I overheard my nine-year-old non-diabetic daughter talking to her older brother. The two of them had picked up Batman Returns from their grandparent's home and were trying to convince me that they were old enough to see it. She was reading the video jacket to him. She read, "Batman Returns stars Danny Devito, Michelle Pfeiffer and someone named Michael Ketones." I guess Michael Keaton should also check his blood sugar.
