Message Sent

I have successfully given blood and it was easy. I feel good, and I learned a bunch. My pint of blood weighs a pound. My blood is red. My red blood count is 39. My one pint can be used to help up to three different people. I shouldnt have sex with men born or living in Africa. I shouldnt have sex with Republican Senators either.

I did choose to send a Bio-Chemical Message to the receipient, however. It wasnt the 20 HotDogs.

The Message was this: Ham on Rye.

I used to give blood like crazy in college. It was easy then. Show up at the student union building, give blood, get free cookie and/or pizza and/or another cookie, leave with your little "I gave blood" sticker.

It's not that easy anymore.

Did you want to have sex with a Republican Senator? If not, refrain. At least in the bathroom of a public facility.

I knew people in college years ago who would sell their plasma. Fifteen bucks on Monday, ten bucks on Thursday. That was a lot of money to poor college kids in the late 80's -- minimum wage was $3.35 an hour back then, so $25 a week was the equivalent of nearly a full day's wages.

I've never donated blood, but I ride a motorcycle. Methinks I have to maybe go visit the blood bank sometime soon. Thanks for the inspiration!

Good for you. (I'm O+ also - the universal donor)...

I hope you drank you juice before you left :)

Prepare to be contacted by the Red Cross every 56 days to ask you to give blood again.

As a universal donor, they'll hound you like crazy!

In my past I was able to give blood. Now no one wants it.
Its the same feeling when you get picked last for a team sport only you just end up standing there and never playing.
