I Can’t Believe Those Aren’t Pancakes!

Here’s a riddle for you: One Sunday morning a diabetic decided she wanted a stack of delicious, warm buttery pancakes. This diabetic knows that pancakes, with all their wheat and carbs, and syrup, with all its sugar and carbs, would send her blood sugar into a tailspin. So the diabetic instead makes a decision to eat…pancakes. […]

The Two-Year Itch
