Giving blood is a good thing, and you even get schnacks.


A few weeks back, I think on the last really cool and windy day of spring, I donated blood for the first time in forever.  Royce, a colleague at my office suggested it and as a father of two grown kids, knew exactly how to rope me in.  “Want to give blood today?” “I’m in the middle of herding some cats, when?” “Right now, I have an appointment.” “Eek, maybe!” “No, seriously, just hop in the car, I’ll drive.” So off I run out the front door, jacketless, to be the first donor of the day, with excellent blood flow no less (yes, I’m that competitive).  I close the car door, he locks it and off we went but I have to admit I felt like a dog being tricked into a vet visit with a promise of a cookie and a drive around the neighborhood.  Anyhoo, good deed done and yesterday, a shiny new official donor card showed up in the mail with a thank you note and a suggestion of when and where I could donate next.

If you’d love a giggle, check out this link .  In Japan and Korea there’s a practice of asking your blood type.  Apparently they feel much like a horoscope that it reflects your personality (which I would say is a bunk science, however, I do happen to check my horoscope a few times a month-Libra, ‘natch).  Soooo, type O positive does seem to hit the nail on the head although I’m getting better at finishing unfinished projects.  Happy reading and researching.
