Denied!

I got denied in the name of LOVE! I was trying to please Edward Cullen by giving blood today at SUU. I went through all the reading, tests, and then I got the question. The question asking if I had been outside the United States in the past year, boy have I? I told the young man where I had been, and then he said, "I'm sorry it looks like you can't give blood for up to a year because during your travels you have traveled to countries that have given you exposure to malaria." What the HECK - Edward won't care, or would he? Besides I just spent an hour of my time here to get told that I am DENIED! Edward, my love, I am sorry, it's not my turn to become a bloodsucker as Jacob calls them, but give me a year and I'll be ready to go! That is unless I travel to the Holy Land, but the Holy Land should be safe...it is called "Holy!"

I could have told ya that you can't give blood. They must be geating desperate for blood because it used to be three years.

I can't ever give blood, I always run anemic.....so at least you get to give in a couple of years!

I cant give blood because I don't bleed enough. They finally told me not to come back because all I do is waste their time and resources.

I'm really good at giving blood! I've only been deferred once and that was because my hemoglobin was like .3 too low. Pathetic. I was able to donate blood that day as well. I did it in 5 minutes and 18 seconds. Not my best time but pretty fast.

Wow, Jessie! Ethan and I have been using the "we lived in England" excuse for over five years now. It's a great way to not have to donate blood and not feel guilty. But I'm thinking we'll be needing a new excuse.

What does donating blood have to do with Edward?
