Giving Blood

I’m giving blood. Like right now. Seriously. As this gets posted, blood is running out of my arm and into a bag.

And I’m not even crying.

This is my second time. I should do it more, but a combination of laziness and irrationality generally conspire to keep my hemoglobin safe at home. I’m only here this time because my sister is starting a new running clinic to train for a half-marathon or some other form of craziness, and she asked me if I wanted to take her time slot.

But I’m glad I’m here.

Have you ever given blood? Do you do it often?

P.S. Lookit my arm!
