What? Still reading? I told you. You have been warned.
So yesterday I was finishing up the final touches of hanging everything up and finally getting settled in. At some point, being human, I needed to relieve myself in the bathroom.
I was disturbed by this discovery. Immediately I assumed I had the worst UTI known to man and immediately called the clinic.
They got me in right away and not surprisingly, asked me to give a sample of my urine, which... looked like this but in a slightly less fancy container.
The clinic was concerned at the sample and immediately assumed I had a urinary tract infection. Luckily they are smart and because I had no other symptoms and they have fancy equipment they like to use, they tested my pee to see what it had.
Results: nothing. No leukocytes (I suppose this is required to have a UTI), no white blood cells, no blood, no protein...NOTHING just straight up good, old fashion, healthy, rosé-colored pee.
So they mystery deepens. The PA asks me, "Have you been eating beets."
Hmmm. And then I remember. I haven't been eating beets but I have been eating dragon fruit, and a lot of it.
Our helper cut up dragon fruit for four people yesterday and no one but me likes to eat in this family, so I ate all four servings. Dragon fruit has a mild taste and looks like this at the market:
And it looks like this when it is cut:
And it looks like this when you pee it out the next day:
Cheers to all my rosé loving friends!
