I used to live in Wisconsin, in a small town. One of my coworkers announced that he was going to give blood. He invited me to come along. I declined. He then proceeded to tell me about what happens: First they take your blood pressure and temperature. You have to answer a few questions. Then you have to wait a while. Don't worry about the chains they put on. They'll take them off when you're done. Don't worry if they put someone behind a screen. They just need a little privacy. And don't worry about it if they cover someone all the way with a white sheet. They're just cold. So, of course, I had to go just to prove that I wasn't afraid. Eventually I got a 7-gallon pin. So don't worry about all these things. And remember you usually get a nice treat after you're done.
