My wife's car has seen better days and so we ventured out last Saturday to browse a few lots. We didn't have a lot of time, the day was busy and so we only had a few hours in between Arden's early basketball game and her afternoon softball practice.
first we needed to get a bite to eat
It was still early but we located a restaurant that was serving lunch. We parked the car and were heading inside when Arden stopped walking. Kelly and I turned to see why she dropped back and saw the most disappointed look on her face and her hand searching in her purse for her OmniPod PDM.
Arden began to tell us that her pod just experienced and error and shut off, "we have to go home to change my pod...". It was only then that I realized how excited Arden was to test drive a car. She looked completely bummed.
It took us a second to get our bearings but in a moment we were able to relieve Arden's concerns. Turns out that her OmniPod wasn't alarming, nothing shut off, the beeping was coming from a nearby cardboard recycling dumpster that was signaling an all clear to nearby workers.
That's not your pod Arden... that's the dumpster!
Belly laughs ensued... and we added 'dumpster' to the list of mechanical things that we've mistaken for Arden's insulin pump.
