AUTS = Another Used Test Strip
Well folks, I couldn’t take it anymore. I had to clean up my test kit at work.
I was having a problem throwing strips away because I felt that I needed to collect them for another contest. I mean, what good is a “guess the number” contest if you don’t have enough numbers to make it worthwhile?!
These strips have been collecting in my case ever since I counted and dumped them for the first contest back in March.
In the tradition of the original contest I will be taking submissions in the comments to this post. The contest will run through the end of the day Friday June 2, 2006. The first person to submit the closest guess will win a real world prize (as opposed to some virtual “kudos” or something).
And, for the sake of my friend Wil, I did not use my camera phone for this picture. I was tempted, but pulled out my (not so) fancy digital camera.
Let the games begin!! Good luck to everyone!
On another note – I had SUCH a good management day yesterday. My high of the day was 204, which was the first reading of the day (171 was the next highest after that). My low of the day was 63, which was due to some more experimentation with my set change day (more on that in a different post).
Not quite meeting the fine example set by our friend Kerri, with a tight threshold of 87 – 139 (sheesh! Can you even call yourself diabetic with numbers like that?!), but I was pretty happy about my day.
“Imagine having to pump your own heart because it didn’t do it by itself. And when you want to sleep you have to pump it slower. For exercise you would have to speed it up. You would have to know the rate of pumping for every activity. Do you think you could do it? Do you think it would be easy?”— George Simmons, Facebook
