Son, recently diagnosed with juvenile diabetes
Booth next to window, local Mexican restaurant.
Mom (to waiter): Do you know how many carbs are in your chicken soup?
Waiter: (confused look). Sorry?
Mom: Do you know how many sugars are in your soup?
Waiter: Okay! (smiles broadly)
Ten minutes later, the waiter returns. He places five sugar packets next to the boy’s soup bowl.
Mother and son look at one another, break-out in laughter, and place the packets in the diabetes backpack.
