The other week, it was that time again – time to head down to the Rhode Island Blood Center and donate. Moonie couldn’t wait!
He’s always quick to donate his little thimble of rainbow-colored troll blood, and then he’s usually nice enough to come cheer me on, because he knows I’m not crazy about needles.
He got so excited when the nice Rhode Island Blood Center ladies gave him his very own RIBC sticker, he climbed right up onto my freshly-donated blood and sang (to the tune of the Village People’s “YMCA”), “It’s fun to come to the R – I – B – C!” We had to ask him nicely not to tap dance on the blood, though.
Boy, does he love his little sticker!
His favorite part of donating is the refreshment table after we finish giving blood. Moonie was quick to remind me to rehydrate, pushing a bottle of water into reach. We were going to need to double our fluids over the next couple of days!
Then I heard munching.
“What are you doing, little dude?” I asked.
“We’re going to need to double our cookies over the next couple of days, too!”
