Diabetes Pal???

Over the last few weeks, we have hired on a whole slew of new people at my job. Normally I don't pay much attention to the fresh blood as they rarely last more than a month. But there was one in particular that caught my eye. She wore a little metal bracelet with an all too familiar emblem on it.

Could it be? Had the universe finally conspired to bring me a diabetic pal?

At the first opportunity I got, I coyly introduced myself.

"And what's the medical alert bracelet for, if you don't mind me asking."

The excitement was bubbling up in me like a giddy child.

"Oh," she said, "I'm allergic to penicillin."

Dammit. So close.

Someday someone will join my Special Bracelet Club.
