I fortunately rarely see blood in any quantities other than a finger prick for a blood test, so I’m not 100% that descriptor is accurate, but it just rolls off the tongue so well.
Come to think of it, I do see blood in larger quantities, but only in a bag, usually connected to a tube running to a needle in my arm. Not the same shade when seen through that plastic.
At least it’s not, as the 1st grade joke goes, a “brose,” i.e., a rose with a “b” in it!
OF COURSE I’m making “dad” jokes. I’m a dad! It’s right there in the job description!
