Diabetes Control is Like an Acorn. (No...seriously!)

Okay.  Humour me for just a moment:  
It occurred to me one evening while watching "Ice Age" with my girls, that trying to achieve and maintain "control" of diabetes resembles the struggles of Scrat, that tenacious,  saber-toothed squirrel, as he tries to hang on to his beloved acorn.  If you are having any trouble making the connection, take a look at this

Less than a minute into this seven minute short the unmistakable, metaphorical parallels become apparent...just something that occurred to me one particularly frustrating evening where diabetes control, or lack thereof, is concerned.
