Control

This one's for you, Lisa:

Today I conducted a makeup AP exam for a small group of students, an enterprise which was long on College Board bureaucracy -- letters, faxes, phone calls, you name it.

In the middle of the test, one of the students developed a migraine, went downstairs, and passed out.

I called my College Board contact to explain that in the middle of our retake-of-exam-due-to-irregularity, we had experienced another irregularity.

She was silent for a moment.

"I don't recall this ever happening on my watch," she finally said.

Now that does sound something that would happen in my life.

unbelievable. Forget your problem, forget the student, the first thing that comes to her mind is to tell you how it has never happened on her watch!

Oh, that made me laugh out loud.

Peace, Virginia
