Day 189— Be Nice to Me . . .

. . . I gave blood today. This is my friend Bob’s arm as he was waiting to start donating blood. I had just finished. One of Channel 10/The Blood Source’s Blood Drives was held at my gym today so we decided to donate this morning. I was almost rejected because a drop of my blood in solution didn’t sink in time, indicating I had low iron. Not to worry, they said, we’ll centrifuge it. I passed the second test. Of course I had my camera and tried some one-handed shots of blood (mine, Bob’s, and another guy who gave me permission) dripping into the bag but after reviewing them I decided they were not very appealing, or interesting for that matter. Bob’s arm with the sticker gets the point across.
