My friend jp hates needles. He’s the one I enjoyed showing my insulin needles to last semester: I liked watching him wriggle as I waved a needle in front of him and talked about how little the injections hurt.
I flinched once while using a particularly blunt lancet to check my sugar. “Don’t worry,” he said. “I only flinched a little too.”
Soon he was describing the infamous murder in the shower from Hitchcock’s Psycho, only I was the murderer and my Fastclix lancet was the murder weapon. Also, the scene now lasted for 30 minutes.
It’s become running joke of sorts. I pull out my lancet to check my sugar and the next thing I know I’m in the middle of scene 1, take 3 of Pyschobetic.
And I’m left wondering–how long would that scene have lasted if a lancet had been used as the murder weapon?
