    Where did you find that test strip?

    1. When people ask why you're wearing a beeper

    2. When you find test strips in weird places

    They're EVERYWHERE

    3. When you need to pee all the time

    4. When you have to fit your pump into formal attire

    5. (although there are ways around that)

    Hottttt.

    21. When people ask in hushed tones if you've seen Steel Magnolias

    22. When people told you you were too young to need diet soda
