My ten year old frequently gets nosebleeds during the winter season. She got one while driving home from the doctor's office last week. Before grabbing a Kleenex, she grabbed a test strip.

Her reply to my look of confusion: "Since my nose is freely giving up the blood, I thought I could save myself a finger prick!"
