‘Do you actually give blood?’
‘I’m very squeamish’
‘I don’t think I can in my condition’
‘I have a phobia of needles’
‘I am working that night’
‘Won’t you be spending the evening with your girlfriend?’
‘Oh, I’ve heard about that….’
‘I am very interested in Julian's work, but I am in Glasgow when it happens.’
