Today my sister in law called to tell me that Westin had a tootsie roll and gave me a blood sugar report. While on the phone with her, a nephew (she has tons of cousins there right now) made a comment about the lancing device (evidentally one of the kids was playing with it). He said not to play with it because it has blood on it and you don't want to "catch diabetes"! He is 13 and thinks that when he knows something, he KNOWS something. I don't know how the conversation went after I got off the phone, but my sister in law was out to set him straight. At first I thought about how silly that comment was. Then I got to thinking, "How many people (including kids and adults) believe that you can catch diabetes?!" Anyone hear this one before?
