Super-Hero and a Smackdown!

My school hosted a blood drive today!! I’d been wanting to donate blood for a while, and today’s being Valentine’s Day just seemed like too much of a coincidence!!

So I gave blood, and it was awesome!! It was pretty cool, actually; my doctor/nurse/I don’t know what to call him?? was really funny! They put little samples of my blood into test tubes, which he called “Vampire Snack-Packs”.

And it didn’t hurt at all!! I mean, I’m really not afraid of needles or blood (and I have a pretty high pain tolerance), so I may not be the best person to hear this from, but it was not at all scary!!

Anyway, I felt like a super hero! But I felt bad for my friend; he couldn’t donate blood because he was born in England when Mad Cow Disease was an issue. He was super pumped about it, too!! (Aha, pumped ^^”)

And then after school, two of my friends, one of whom is a 7th grader (who is very mature for his age), the other of whom is a year older than me, were having a conversation about Pokemon.

Basically, my friend that’s older than me LOVES Pokemon, but my 7th-grade friend doesn’t care much to it. So they had a little smackdown that went something like this:

Older Friend: Do you like Pokemon?

7th Grade Friend: Not really… I don’t play it any more.

Older Friend: Why don’t you play Pokemon?

7th Grade Friend: It’s for children.

Older Friend: You do realize you’re talking to a 17 year old that plays Pokemon?

7th Grade Friend: Yeah…? It was always too easy, even when I was little.

Older Friend: (Lightly slapping 7th grade friend’s head) Come on, everyone plays it! It’s so fun!

7th Grade Friend: (Turning to me, talking about older friend) She’s obviously a Pokemon nut who doesn’t do anything but play Pokemon when she’s not doing homework.

At this point I just about started CRYING I was trying not to laugh so hard!!

And what makes it even better: My seventh grade friend is SUPER tiny–I mean, boys don’t have their growth spurt until 8th-11th grade (And even after that!), so it’s basically this tiny, seventy-two pound kid with a slight speech impediment (his “r”s come out like “w”s) taking on this eleventh grader.

It was REALLY funny, but I had to intervene to keep my older friend from slapping him around, which made me a little upset with her.

BUT ANYWAY YES!! Today was a good day!

How was your Valentine’s Day??

  1. Oh, that’s so cool that you got to donate blood! I’ve always wanted to, but not the opportunity! It’s really neat getting that feeling of satisfaction, knowing you could help someone in a time of need and such!

    Pokemon! Yeeeeaaah! That’s an amusing conversation, though! It would be so funny to witness it!
