I love free food! I went with my roommates and donated blood for the first time today here in Lexington. Honestly, I was impressed. Despite the uncomfort of the actual needle, I got a free t-shirt, card for a free meal at McDonald's, and a card for free chips and guacamole at Chipotle. Pretty sweet deal, huh? A little blood for almost two meals and another shirt! Plus, they had Little Debbie snack cakes and pop and juice machines for refreshment after donating. I think I will definitely go back. Incidentally, I used to be afraid of needles! I was so afraid that I even cried when they tried to give me the MMR vaccine in 7th grade. My parents had to drag me into the room so the nurse could give it to me. Needless to say, I'm not so afraid anymore, thankfully.
