Be nice to me...


Updated: I told the nurse I was feeling fine, yet I just spent half an hour wondering why they wrote "ONE G" on my post-donation sheet.

Yep - it took me 30 minutes to realize it's "O NEG".

That's funny. At least you had a reason for your "ONE G" confusion.

No one wants my blood. I tried to donate years ago and after I answered yes to the question... Have you ever had seizures. The red cross told me thanks but no thanks. :-( Talk about being rejected.

Your past two posts have made me want more free time to surf some of those websites. :)

I'm proud of you. I need some good people to pick up my slack until they let me donate again next August. Long story. If you haven't already read it, I'll spare you.

You're a trooper!

Hee hee hee! One G!

I haven't been able to donate in years. You should be proud of yourself!

Thanks for the laugh - but now I can't stop. The coworkers haven't yet asked what's up though....should I be concerned that they aren't??

Are you sure you're not really blonde underneath that mane of pretty dark hair???? (Just kidding...I can say that considering I'm a blonde,er, dark blonde w/ highlights.)

Wow, Linda...you have that cool kinda blood they're always looking for. That's impressive.

I gave blood once when I was in high school to get out of class. I was surprised how much of a cinch it was and vowed to do it again.

Uh...I might oughta get on that.

In my defense, I showed the sheet to Joe when he was home for dinner & with no prompting, he asked, "What's one g?"

Cee, good thing I didn't tell them you & I have been in the same room. I may have been turned away. :)

And, Ginger, I have been told by a blonde friend that I most definitely have blonde roots.

Yep. O negative - the universal donor. I guess I'm a blood whore... You know, I can just give it to anyone...

Ooh that's a rare blood type! Very cool!

My blood type's more of the giving kind. Everyone can take it, but I can't take any type but the same one. I do think we're pretty common though.

One G... nice.
