Reading in Romeo and Juliet earlier, I found a fitting Shakespearean context for this day, as well as the predicted “near-100″ degree ones to follow, Thursday and Friday–
I pray thee, good Mercutio, let’s retire:
The day is hot, the Capulets abroad,
And, if we meet, we shall not scape a brawl;
For now, these hot days, is the mad blood stirring. ”
Hot days and blood stirring. Also sounds like a description of August 13 at the Dedham Red Cross Donor Center.
That will be the first date that we’re all eligible, since our Blood Drive in June.
That’s the weekend after the Pan-Mass Challenge
