This question on the blood donor form always leaves me in a quandary. I am a woman, I have been and still am being courted. My husband is human, he makes mistakes, he atones for them by buying gifts and flowers and sometimes he leaves money on my nightstand for me if I’m out of money or won’t get to an ATM on that day. I forgive him or pay him back by having a roll in the hay with him.
So what is the correct answer to this question. I’ve said yes the first few times but then my forms were red-flagged and I was called into a private room with the Matron and asked about my ‘career’. Once I explained that I was happily married, she laughed nervously and changed my yes to a no and I was allowed to give blood.
It was even funnier when I was dating before I met DH – then the flowers and gifts were in abundance! Ah, the life of a single girl! And the other question that used to confuse me was: Have you slept with someone of the same sex in the past 6 months? Now as a party animal singleton… there are some nights when you just can’t get home or your mate can’t and you guys crash in the same bed. No hanky panky as far as I can remember but the question was slept back then. I see they’ve now made it ‘had sex with someone of the same sex’ must have changed it because of brutally honest and or dumb people like me!
So sprogbloggers… how many of you take money and gifts?????
