“Avast, me hearties, get to swabbing!”
I was thinking how all you have to do is a cheek swab to get on the marrow registry and it made me think of pirates swabbing the deck. This made me realize I never knew what the heck “avast me hearties” exactly meant. So I looked it up.
Apparently, the term “avast”- 0ften used by said pirates – means “Stop what you’re doing and look at this here!” or “Hold up and check this out!”
So I would say to you: “Avast, me hearties: it’s so easy to swab your cheek and get on the bone marrow registry to maybe save a life…’ (In case youre just joining us, this is Bone Marrow Registry month on One Page For lol)
Pirates, except the real ones who kill people, are cool:
And of course: The Pirate Movie . (A happy ending?!)
It would also be cool if you contacted Marrow.org and ordered your kit and get on the registry. No plank walking required! It’s not an arrrrgh-duous task. lol.
I’m going in for my pre-donation exam tomorrow. I’ll let you know what it’s like.
Thanks for reading!
