This will be a short post. I have a couple of appointments this weekend. To calm fears they want to know my temperature for a few days.
I grew up in the States and the old thermometers had mercury in them and you stuck them under your tongue. In Japan they use digital thermometers but you don’t stick it under your tongue. It is placed in another warm place but(I spelled that right) not where you think. It is placed under your arm. The temperature is lower by a degree or so.
Have you ever used the underarm method? Do you a nonstandard way to take your temp?
