I dropped my lancing device (a.k.a. my “finger poker”) on the gym floor last week. The cap that goes over the lancet popped off and skittered away.
I’m on the side of the basketball court, facing the wall. There’s nothing but empty gym floor to my left, right, and behind me. I looked and looked and looked, but I could not find the cap to my finger poker. I was a little amused, because really, where the hell could it have gone?
Back to the basketball court, and with thanks to K2, I knew what I needed to do. I checked my blood sugar a couple more times before leaving, and it worked out just fine.
But I still packed a new lancing device into my test kit once I got home.
