You’re on soon!! I had already set up the stage with a pile of foods I wouldn’t eat with diabetes and put a black tablecloth over it. When it was my turn, I began to sing, “You made me love you, I didn’t want to do it” and then whisked off the cover to reveal the table piled high with sugared cereals like Trix and Captain Crunch, cookies and candy. I was going for all sorts of foods that would get a laugh AND ones I didn’t like. Hey, I’ve been known to eat the props! The performance was a blur but I do remember afterwards giving all the food to the ballroom staff.
Mary accepted her Woman of the Year award for all her hard work advocating and raising money for diabetes. She was eloquent and gracious. Then she was whisked away to the airport.
