That was way too cute Richard!! I kind of doubt the reading would be accurate with all the handling and putting down of the strip, but he knows how to do it for sure. I laughed out loud when he put the meter in his mouth!!

Me too Daytonna, I did my forearm for a year before getting brave enough to do my finger tips. I remembered how much pain the little razor lancers they used to use inflicted.
