2 pints short...
So, this is where I went yesterday.
These are two lovely people, (of, I would guess, about a dozen), that helped with the drawing... Unfortunantly, I didn't get a picture of the gal that actually took my blood, but they were pretty on-the-go at that point, so please forgive...
Well, I was looking forward to my 5 gallon pin. I got all my pins out, yep, 5 gallon, coming up! Then checked the numbers.
36, 37, 38... 38? Ok, math time, how many pints in 5 gallons, hmmm. 40.
Wha?!?!!! 40? But I was sure I was at 5 gallons....
Hmph. Ok, well, fine.
So. I am at 39 pints, as of this drawing, and will get my 5 gallon pin NEXT time.
But still, 4 gallons is kinda cool too. But you gotta admit, 5 will be even cooler. Like an upgrade, or something...
New slogan for Red Cross: Be cool this winter, give blood.
But do it anyway. Heh.
