Humour is important but not when you’re having your blood pressure taken

July 27, 2011

I gave blood today because I have problems saying no to Miss Arvaughn.  And bonus – it’s pint for a pint month which means you get a coupon for a free pint of Baskin Robbins ice cream.

There were all these new people at my regular location.  It was odd and a little unsettling since your really want to know and trust the people with the needles.  But it turns out that everyone is funny and witty and joyous.  Willing to both crack and take a joke.

I mean if you can’t laugh over needles and questions about how safe your blood is then what can you laugh at, right?

But whatever you do…. don’t start laughing when they are trying to take your blood pressure because it causes the numbers to jump something fierce.

Things I know now.
