- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
For two days there had been a fly in my house. We'd tried to kill it and it kept escaping Well, this morning, Jesse was eating breakfast and it landed on the table and I was able to squish it. Jesse looked at the poor thing and screamed, "Quick! Get my meter!" This little bugger left a bloody blob on the table. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough blood for even the One Touch Ultra! The funniest part though was that my DH heard him scream (figured there was a problem) and came running into the kitchen dripping wet from the shower wrapped in a towel. He sees us trying to scrape the blood onto the strip, shook his head, and walked out.
