The color, not the fruit

I just took the Glucose Challenge (sounds fun, right?), which is a standard test they give around the 27th week of pregnancy to check for gestational diabetes.  This is the nastiest test I've had to do so far.  I needed to drink a bottle of super-sweet "orange drink" syrup (and I mean orange as in the color, not as in the fruit flavor), then wait an hour before they drew blood to test my glucose levels.  Luckily my blood results were "beautiful" because otherwise they would have made me chug more of the stuff for additional testing.  Phew, done with that!
