“MOM!! Daddy’s peeing on a Cheeto stick!”

Picture of a box of KetostixI have a habit of checking for exercise ketones some nights after I play basketball.  It helps me know whether I need to juggle my insulin around a bit to combat the insulin resistance it can cause.

Last night as I was doing just that, my kids busted into the bathroom (like kids will often do).  They saw me holding and peeing on the test strip and asked me what it was.  I answered “a ketostix”.

My daughter went running out of the bathroom yelling for my wife “MOM!!! MOM!! Daddy’s peeing on a Cheeto stick!”
