So as you may know, I have a little trouble giving blood. I've done it twice in my life, and both times have ended in a bit of a mess. You can read the stories here and here. As I lay there after the second time, 2 weeks ago today, I decided that maybe it's just not for me.
But that didn't stop me from photo-documenting the second experience for posterity. There wasn't a place for pictures in my post yesterday, and since I'm NaBloPoMoing it this month, it seemed like a better idea to post the pictures entirely separately, thereby fulfilling my posting requirements for NaBloPoMo Day 21. Win-Win.
So, here, for your viewing satisfaction, is photo proof of my second blood-donating disaster. A series I like to call, "At Least I Was Wearing Pants"

Or, just an excuse to eat a really good cupcake.

Nurse comes over and tells me to uncross legs.
|Donation goes bad. Legs once again up in the air.|
|And headrest down. View of the ceiling.|
|Headrest down even further. Ice packs appear.|
Decide to investigate putting recessed lighting in my house.
|$5 Starbucks giftcard as a thank you for donating.|
For my troubles.

Starbucks gift card + 75 of my own cents because who knew you
now needed to take out a mortgage to buy a Starbucks drink?
