What a fun time I had with the test strip contest!
I’m glad that we were able to have some fun with my untidy testing habits!! And we also had a bit of fun with the general (lack of) quality of picture that my camera phone is capable of. 8D
So, you remember from the original post that we had two parts of the contest.
1) How many strips are there?
2) What meter are the strips from?
You will also, no doubt, remember this wonderful, high quality original picture. As mentioned in the original post, this is where all my used test strips land when I test at work. For no good reason, as the garbage is just inches further in the other direction. But as Wil mentioned, that’s just too damn far away.
The winner of part 1 of the contest is Kerri of Six Until Me!! Kerri guessed 133 strips, which is, as she said, “Larry Bird plus 100″. There were actually 139 strips in the pouch. Very good guess Kerri. You be sure to tell Larry “thank you” when you talk to him next.
The winner of part 2 of the contest is Caro of Diabetes Wise!! Caro guessed that the strips were from my Accu-Chek Compact meter. Very nice! Perhaps she remembered me posting about this meter back in February.
These two wonderful fellow d-bloggers will be receiving some type of real world prize – but I have to wait until I get my allowance from my wife after she’s had her way with our tax refund.
I had a lot of fun with this, and will do something similar again in the near future.
Congratulations to our winners, and thanks to everyone who participated!
