A few things to point out here...
1.) You should always cleanse your hands before you test your BG.
2.) If you are considering giving yourself a correction shot then make sure you re-test your BG before you do.
3.) Considering my BG was at 3.4 I was lucky I had the presence of mind to go wash my hands and re-test. There would have been some serious consequences if I would have given myself my 2 units of Humalog like I normally do for a correction when my glucose is in that range.
I guess that I had got a little sloppy in forgetting to wash my hands. I always do; or at least use hand sanitizer before I test. Complacency almost got the best of me. I am pretty sure what happened is that when I went into my diabetes kit, my hands must have rubbed up against my Dex tabs. I keep everything in the same bag, including my hand sanitizer, which in this case would have been very helpful to use. Lesson learned. Or refreshed. Either way a close call. Learn from my mistake, or get a refresher from my mistake, whatever way you want to look at it. Consider it a reminder, just wash your hands!
