Arm-sensor placement

Hello, ladies and gentlemen!  I would like to present to you... (drum roll please):

The WORST placement I've been able to find for an arm-sensor (...so far).

Forearm Sensor

The forearm is a terrible place for a sensor!

- It hurts
- It is sitting in muscle
- Have I mentioned that it hurts?
- It gets in the way when driving, working, or pretty much any time you might wish to use an arm rest
- EVERYONE CAN SEE IT, so on a day when you'll be frustrated enough by the bloody thing, you will also be pestered by every well-meaning coworker who has never seen your sensor before and wants to know what it is

On the plus side, that accuracy here isn't terrible?

Argh.

My BG levels are, though (...terrible, I mean). I blame the not-bolusing-for-coffee this morning... Whoops!
