As if using 'defenestrate' in casual conversation wasn't enough, I also got to make a hilarious "don't touch it, you don't know where it's BEEn" 'joke'. Good times.
After work I ticked an item off my pre-holiday checklist by giving blood. It was coincidence that I'd been called up today, but in the light of world events I was very glad to go, and when I said so to the nurse she said they'd been packed out all day with drop-in donors.
Obviously blood from Bromley won't be going to Boston, but doing something positive helps one feel less angry and helpless.
