Give Life

My calendar for today reads: "11:15 - Bleed Berkley". I wrote it quickly, so it is not very clear. But I know that it means I was scheduled to give blood at the Berkley donation center this morning.

It was a slow-moving morning for me, and I wasn't hungry when I awoke, but I didn't think about the fact that an 11:15 appointment had me actually bleeding more around noon. Kind of lunch time, and I still hadn't eaten. Oops! Fortunately I have a strong constitution, and felt okay. I had lots of juice and cookies after to make up for it, then stopped for a gyro pita on the way home.

But anyway, as many as three lives helped today, and it's not even 2pm. Go me!

Giving blood is cool. You should do it too.
