Animal Crackers
I gave blood today. As I'm sure I've written many times before, it always makes me feel good, but it was sad today to know that animal crackers would not be forthcoming after donating. I'd grown so accustomed to the drinks and snacks that they give out at Northwestern that they really felt like part of the the blood donation process. Animal crackers and oreos with little half frozen cups of apple juice were just a part of the process. Not that it was ever a reason for donating, but it was just something nice in my mind. The snacks afterward were good here too, including cheese and crackers, a Mars bar, raisins, sugar cookies, and lollies (like our fruit snacks at home), but it was just different.
