    So your the only diabetic in your household.
    Do your other family members use your lancets to :-
    Remove splinters !!
    Scrape stains off teeth !!
    Pop spots

    Just wondering !!!

    Other uses for lancets - pinning messages; popping bubble wrap; stabbing dolls of people you don't like - better stop now ...
