I really wanna' know my blood type now

Good morning everyone,

It's going to be a cold one today. They're calling for a high of only 5C. Luckily it'll be mostly sunny...well, hopefully. That's what they said about yesterday too! Ha ha! I don't know about you, but I was riding my bike home in the middle of a snowstorm! Tomorrow will be much warmer with a high of 9C. In fact, all week will see highs of 10C or so, just the one cold day today...it's days like today that make me wish I had a kotatsu! Ha ha!

As you know, Japanese are way more interested in their blood type than people from other countries. I can't speak for everyone, but most of the non-Japanese people I know don't even know their blood type. When I ask Japanese people why they want to know, the most common answer I get is that it's a good idea to know in case of emergency. Is that true? I can't see it to be honest. If you're in a situation where you are in need of a blood transfusion, odds are you're going to be either unconscious or way too hysterical to be of any help. Besides that, what if you give the wrong answer and then the hospital gives you the wrong blood and you die. Can the doctors say, "Well, she said she was 'A'"? Is that the real reason?

I'm not sure it is...however, I heard the other day that being 'B' or 'AB' means you can eat oysters without worrying about getting sick. According to a medical report, people with blood type 'B' don't have the necessary genes for the virus to be attracted to. If so, that explains a lot about why a group of people can go out together and eat the same batch of oysters, but only some of them get sick. Apparently, people who are 'O' type are the most likely to get sick and when they do, they feel the symptoms worse than other types.

It's not like 'B' blood types are completely immune to the virus found in oysters, but they are resistant to it. That basically means that they are less likely to get sick and if they do get sick, they feel the symptoms much less severely than other blood types.

I'm definitely going to the Blood Bank to find out if I am 'B' blood type. If so, I can eat oysters more often than I do now. (Having said that, I'll be really disappointed if I'm 'O') At the moment, I'm extra careful about eating good oysters. I don't want to get sick from oysters, obviously spending a day or two on the toilet wouldn't be very fun. But also, it would mean losing my appetite for them for ages and that would suck...ha ha!

Have a great day!
