today, i had to get blood drawn, because my doctor figures whenever anything's wrong with me i should get bloodwork done. today they drew the blood out of the top of my hand, and i swear to christ this is what the phlebotomist said to me:

"your hands, they're little, and this vein, its little and it lets the blood out slowly. this is a strong vaccuum [they use this suction dealy to draw out the blood, if you didnt know] but im using a little needle. now, if i used a big needle, it would make your vein collapse into itself and there would be blood all over the room. then we'd be in trouble, oh boy!"
