You know that thing that happens sometimes when you carefully select your injection site, inject carefully and slowly, wait the normal time for everything to settle before you pull out the needle, and BOOM out comes a big old drop of blood mixed with insulin...or three...or ten...and runs all over the place and stains everything...gah...
What do you call it?
I need a good name for that because it freaks me out when I see it running down my stomach as I dive for a tissue; I want to knock it down to size by giving it a goofy name.
If I'm in the right mood, I love the at-tude of calling injecting insulin "shooting up" as in, "Be right back, y'all, I gotta go shoot up." (This always gets a laugh at work.)
I need an equally tough way of referring to what happens next sometimes.
"shooting back" ?!!?
