Natural Consequences

Daughter's blood sugar was sky high this morning. All day she has been complaining off and on of stomach issues. I was wondering if she'd caught the intestinal virus circulating in the church, but this evening I discovered that she somehow managed to get a box of sugar free chocolates out of the pantry when I turned my back and it was unlocked. She ate them last night. Sugar free does not mean carb free (hence the high blood sugar), but it does mean that there are sugar alcohols in it, which, eaten in large quantities, have a laxative effect. Will she remember this misery? For a few days, maybe.
