Surfing Santa

So we ventured out into the snow late Sunday afternoon to check out a huge Christmas light display about thirty minutes from our house. On the way we stopped to have a quick bite, Arden tested her blood glucose and just as we were about to bolus... the batteries in her PDM went dead. I immediately looked around the restaurant for a fix, my wife told me that she saw a convenience store as we drove up, but that I would need to get back into the car to get there. Truth be told, I didn't want to go back out into the snow, but moreover, I didn't want Arden to miss her food because she was waiting for me to return with batteries. I began looking around for an answer when it hit me, the restaurant had televisions covering almost every inch of it's walls, "I bet they have a drawer full of TV remotes", I thought.

A few minutes later the bartender was pulling two triple A batteries from one of his many remotes, and Arden was back in business. The very kind bartender wouldn't even take the batteries back before we left...
