This incident started because we’ve been watching the keto videos and one of them suggested the pH of urine should be more towards alkaline than acid. That prompted me to get my pH strips that I used for testing kombucha and test my urine. The scale on the container only goes to about 4.4 and it’s green. When I tested my urine, the strip was purple . . which would indicate about a 13 . . which would not be good.
Vince and I then had this conversation about my concerns.
Me: I just peed on a ph strip and it’s purple. I think there’s something wrong with me.
Vince: What kind of strip did you pee on?
Me: One for testing kombucha.
Vince: (looking at the bottle) These aren’t the right kind. You need a different one.
Me: Will you pee on one so I can see what color yours is?
Me: But, I’m worried something could be wrong with me.
Vince: You should worry about things that matter.
Me: What do YOU think I should be worried about?
Vince: What you’re going to cook for dinner tomorrow night.
Me: What if I’m dead by then?
Vince: So long as you get dinner cooked first . .
He was joking so don’t anyone think badly of him.
He did test his urine and it was purple too so, whatever is wrong, we both have it! 🙂
I think I’ll leave my urine testing to the professionals.
