By all means, use all your fingers! You don't always have to pick the same one.

Hard to say. Depends on how much "work" the lancet has to do (some people have tougher skin, etc.). I usually change my lancet every time I open a new vial of test strips, just to keep things fresh. Some folks go for months with the same lancet. When it occurs to you that pricking your finger hurts more often than it used to, it's time to change the needle.

I've got thin skin on my fingers, and even if I don't feel it when I test, I feel it later on because they get sore, even if I switch fingers every day.

I haven't had any difference in readings from fingers to using the pad part of my palm.

For me, I get 7 or 8. I can tell when it's dull because it starts to really hurt.

Went grocery shopping with my wife Wednesday afternoon. Came home and decided to have fried eggs and leftover Christmas ham for supper. The first two eggs she put in the pan for me were both double yolk. I thought what are the odds of that. I also thought maybe I ought to go by a lottery ticket, so after I eat I go out in the storm, drive 10 miles to the closest store, and buy 5 quick picks.. Guess what!!!!!

I only hit one number. I should have sent her to get the ticket, she was the one that picked that carton of eggs.

etherea and chargette like this.

It gives them a pause to ponder, what they are going to say next.

Ah, so it replaces "Uh," or "Um."

Wishing all a Safe and Happy New Year. I'll "see it in" at 3:30 AM, I am working days shift. Probably won't even see the end of the ball game tonight

I lived in Japan when I was in the 4th-6th grade. They said "Ah, So" a lot. I think it meant "I see"

I think so, and it is more accepted than "Well, lemme see."
I have noticed that phrase bothers some people, it makes them irate.
Or it brings out their natural instinct, of irascibility. [I had to use the spell check on irasubillitie.]
