What the phlebotomist said when she saw my vein. (WhyThankYouVeryMuch.)
Queued up in the gymnasium/lunchroom of Saints Peter & Paul Catholic School this AM to give a pint.
I asked the gal who stuck me whether bags of blood are like glasses of wine: Does the color vary from donor to donor?
Matter of fact it does, she said.
Folks who exercise quite a bit have brighter blood, because it's more oxygenated, as do folks who keep themselves hydrated. Slugs' blood is really dark.
And folks who work under intense fluorescent lighting, she told me, have blood that's "all glowy."
"It's kinda cool," she said.
