Right. AIBU to dispose of DD's out-of-date medication in this way?

It is / was live blood cells, life-saving but now useless for DD, due to the date.

It is meant to be given as an infusion so there is kit with it which can be easily stamped on destroyed.

But my clematis is looking very poorly despite all the rain.

Should I make the 40-mile each-way trip to take the stuff back to the hospital as the pharmacist decreed, or potentially grow a blood-eating plant à la Little Shop of Horrors?

What a waste! It could have made a vampire's day. So, UABVU, VU!

Oh, good point! I could use it to lure sparkly and gorgeous men who dress impeccably and wear make-up rather than wasting the blood on mere plants.

I don't know what I would do with said men other than direct them to Brighton but perhaps someone on MN could make use of them.

Buy a Venus fly-trap and feed it till it turns into a triffid.

You should be able to drop it in to ANY pharmacy if just for disposal. Same for any out of date meds

jenniec79 you're being boring

Thank you for your practical advice, Jenny. I may insist they rid me of it in the future but it is too good an opportunity to waste and I am very drunk tonight.


Vampires or triffids? I have a sunflower outside. I wonder if the blood-products would work on that?

Oh, you might get those reddish coloured sunflowers then. Now that I think of it, you could have done so much with it. An art painting, setting up for a mosquito nursery, made haggis, mix with honey and put on your hair as mask - because you're worth it.

Triffids definitely, once you give them your out of date meds I could give you my out of date Scandi shake, to help them grow into decent sized triffids.

Years ago a charge nurse I knew used to take out of date blood home to feed his roses! apparently they did very well.

Clemati Triffids it is then!

Schnullerbacke I would fucking well love to go out / stay in drinking with you grin

yy, I will take photographs of the blood-craving plant when it has been fed the live cells.

It will become part of my Zombie Plan since I don't have Xenia's funds to buy myself a remote island (amazing how far ahead of the rest of us in that respect she is)
