tiger’s pee was fluorescent green about six weeks ago. He was quite alarmed and yelled, “What’s the matter with my tinkle?” at the top of his lungs before I rushed him to the hospital. We were both nervous wrecks and tiger kept Googling “lime pee pee” and “green number one” to diagnose himself.
When we finally saw a doctor, she did a urinanalysis test and it came back that the discoloration was due to green dye used in pints of ale at the pub on St. Patty’s Day.
The doctor and tiger and I laughed and laughed but the doctor became alarmed when she heard how many pints of ale tiger drank.
