As I was getting bloodwork done in the lab today, I thought, Why not?
I have been carrying this card around in my wallet for half a century now.
It is the worse for wear.
So, why not get it renewed?
The lab technician laughed.
Okay, it was more of a chortle, but I was relieved that it was not a guffaw.
If I were admitted to hospital after an accident, she said, they would test my blood immediately. The card is no good anymore.
She suggested that I remove it from my wallet and keep it as a curiosity.
Perhaps I should re-examine that condom that kept it company . . . heh, heh.
