I had to go down the street to the Naval hospital today to get some blood drawn because I have all kinds of things wrong with me am special (or so my mother tells me).

I am happy to report that, unlike the last time I had blood drawn, way back in Massachusetts, I did not pass out and nearly fall out of the chair, and then be forced to sit in a reclining chair/bed all by myself in a little room for an hour while they made sure I wasn't going to do it again.

Way to go, me!

I was also very mature and didn't do this, either.

Yay! Good for you! I've yet to master this myself!

I'm a freak. I actually sort of like getting blood drawn. Which is lucky, because I have skinny veins. When I had a CAT Scan a few weeks ago, they stuck me at least 5 times, and kept moving the needles around underneath my skin trying to hit veins. They're lucky I'm such a cool customer about those things. But I sort of think it's fascinating.

I like to watch. Because there's nothing worse that "surprise pain" that you get if you don't watch.

I have to get blood drawn again later this week. Good times.

OMG, that video was hilarious! The best part was the kid saying, "Not funny!"

I don't mind the needle prick so much as sitting there waiting for your blood to drain out of your arm. I only give blood for the free Nutter Butters.

I don't they they appreciate how seriousbusiness blood is. I'm glad you didn't pass out though. Passing out sucks.
