I am a universal donor.  My O- blood is given to people in critical situations when they do not have time to type the patient.

I guess it's all relative. It'd be awfully nice to help save a life. I'm just really short and just barely make it out of the requirement for not being in a booster seat!!

I used to. They increased the weight limit and I don't weigh enough now.

I don't weigh enough and I had a blood transfusion so I would love to, but since I don't weigh enough, I can't.
