Letter To The (Blood) Bank

Writing 101: Day 14
Pick up the nearest book and flip to page 29. What’s the first word that jumps off the page? Use this word as your springboard for inspiration. If you need a boost, Google the word and see what images appear, and then go from there.
Today’s twist: write the post in the form of a letter.

On page 29 the word ‘blood’ got my attention…
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ *** ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BloodBank
Dear Blood Bank,

I’m sorry, but I do not understand your ‘policies’. Today I got your letter saying that you can no longer accept any more blood donations from me. Yes, I was in Germany in 1981/82. Suddenly this question appears on your long questionnaire and now I can’t give blood. What the heck went on over there? Should I seek treatment?

You used to call me constantly. You acted like my O-Negative blood was more precious than gold, especially after my blood passed a test and could be used for babies. An O-Neg Baby Donor, the rarest of the rare, you told me “you are so special!”  So I donated blood when the mobile unit came to my workplace, four-times a year.

Now?  You tell me you don’t want my blood. I answered one lousy little question ‘yes’, and  you dump me!  You were just using me to get my blood, and lying about how I was so ‘special’!

I feel so dirty now.

  1. Hi! I think I know why your blood is not eligible for donation anymore! My lecturer was just telling us about it the other day! 🙂
