"I use syringes to take insulin.. I always there. One time, in the ninth grade, I took my insulin, and I put my needle away. At the start of my second class, someone asked me, "what is that supposed to be, like a statement?" I was so confused! Turns out, I had put the syringe between my ear like one would with a pencil and just had it there all morning! I was shocked and embarrassed!
