This time I
So Tuesday while at work I switched out my sensor. My co-worker helped me as I wasn't sure I could get the angle right without some major yoga moves.
|I think taking a picture of the back of my arm was actually|
harder than inserting the sensor there.
I thought it would be fun to keep track of the different comments I received while wearing the sensor in such a visible spot. I knew I would at least get a couple questions and a few comments, but I wasn't expecting some of them.
Here is a list of what I heard:
- So you're trying your arm, huh? (said by a co-worker while she poked it)
- So what is that? (said by another co-worker)
- So is that a new thing in your arm? (yet another co-worker.. side note.. we are a talkative office)
- It looks like an electronic tumor growing on your arm. (said by my supervisor. He meant it in all humor)
- Nice robotic blister. (This one made me laugh! My daughter's boyfriend is a riot.)
- So what's this new patch you have? (co-worker.. see, we're a talkative bunch)
- Excuse me, may, I ask you what that is on your arm?
The entire interaction was less than 5 minutes, but I know the ripple effect will go far. As this lady was getting into her car she was explaining what she learned to her companion. I could hear the excitement in her voice. You know the sound. You could almost picture her going home and telling a family member about this new device that she saw and how much help it would be for so and so.
The ugly tape, the funky tan lines, the weird looks.. it is all worth it because one lady now knows more.
