Wow all of these posts are really funny! My instructor told us a story about how she had been educating a newly diagnosed diabetic and his wife on insulin injection and was using an orange because it most closely felt like skin. After a couple of weeks the man came back in so proud but his sugar was still up there above what it should have been. He said , “Well I thought it was awful silly that her shooting that insulin into that orange was gonna help my blood sugar but I finally got it! I had to eat the orange after she did it right doc?” Lol needless to say he and his wife got some reeducation with that statement.
