A blood donor virgin that is! This afternoon was my first experience of donating blood. I used to donate plasma back in college for happy hour money, but that was years ago.
I had to complete this massive questionairre with such questions as, have you left the country in the past 3 years, do you live with somebody that has hepatitis, and the ever so common question - have you ever been paid for sex? WHAT?!! Of course not. Wow.
Then I start thinking about it as a needle the size of a garden hose is sucking out my blood - would somebody actually say yes to the question? Does that automatically disqualify them? How embarrassing. Of course I was not about to ask the lovely blood drawer as that would probably raise suspicion. I just thought that was weird.
Anyhow, for the lucky (I guess they would be unlucky if they needed blood) sole that gets my blood, I will have you know it has a great iron supply according to the iron testing machine. For those that believe you have to eat a lot of dark green, leafy vegetables I am walking proof that you don't. I don't take vitamins either so I'm not really sure where that iron comes from. I most certainly know it's not from my daily dose of Tootsie Rolls - or is it?!
