A MEDICAL ANOMALY



With boys, everything is a competition.

The oldest one just went to the phlebotomist at the local clinic to give blood.

This has become a monthly task for the set of them.

“How long does this usually take?” Howard asked inquisitively. “Is there a record for giving a unit of blood?”

The nurses looked at each other and winked. They knew a sucker when they saw one. “Under five minutes per unit is a good time,” the older one stated.

“Under four minutes would record-breaking for me,” chimed in the younger.

“Do you have a squeeze ball?” inquired Howard. “I’ll shoot for three minutes and something.”

The needle was inserted…

The timer was started…

Long story short- in three minutes and thirty-one seconds, the unit was tagged and shelved.

Howard was a winner again.
