The Bloodmobile was at work, so I donated. (Anyone else get the tune of The Gnomemobile in his head when he hears ‘Bloodmobile’?) Svetlana, the pretty Russian phlebotomist, asked me if I am allergic to iodine. I told her I wasn’t, and then we talked about Russian food and she told me of a local Russian deli. She swabbed my arm with Betadine solution and I said, 'Wait. Did you say iodine? :eek: ’ She stopped a moment and then said, ‘I ask you already and you say no.’ Didn’t fall for it. Oh, well. There’s always the next phlebotomist.
When I signed in they gave me a coupon for a #1 Combo Meal at Wahoo’s Fish Taco. Sweet.
Found out my blood pressure is in the normal range. 120 over 80. I’d rather it be 120 over 70. I’ll have to work on that. But I’ve been eating more healthfully recently.
