Bloody Marvelous!

I gave blood today, and it was a good feeling.

Oh yeah, sure, there's the whole "saving a life" thing, which I suppose is pretty important.

And they check your cholesterol, which I suppose might be helpful.

But the best part, the really, really great part, is that a pint of blood is the equivalent of 650 calories. (Jeff found it on some medical website, and it was on the internet so it must be true.)

I celebrated by eating four Oreos, a bag of jalapeno kettle chips, and a few pretzels.

I wish I could give blood every day.

Oh, and they graded our applications. I got an A-. That overachieving bastard Jeff got an A+.

I don't think I've eaten oreos since the last time I gave my A+ blood.

I can't remember the last time I ate oreos. I was really missing the jalapeno chips, though. The pretzels were salty goodness, too. It's possible I'm a little obsessed with food. Just possible.

Didn't we eat oreos every day when I lived with you?

Way to go, overachieving bro. Those smart people have nothing on us!

Did we? I don't remember that. Anyhow, that was what, twelve years ago? Something like that, right?
