Pee pee

Urine test

So, as part of my insurance, they need a urine sample from me. Just to make sure I'm, you know, insurable.

A nurse came in, very nice gentleman. He gave me this package. Had no clue what I was supposed to be doing - you want me to pee into those tiny test tubes? I mean, my pinky is bigger than that, and I don't exactly have bear paws.

No, you're supposed to pee into the big beaker, then carefully fill up the test tubes. Notice the little spout. I almost giggled out loud when he told me to "start filling up mid-stream". There was even a tablet in the green vial to "keep the urine fresh". Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't being warm guarantee freshness? I mean, it should at least be 37° right?

There was some spillage. I assure you, I washed my hands. I hope my urine passes the test.
