Time for my annual checkup. I believe in getting tested every year.

Good afternoon, what brings you here?

Tell me a little about yourself. I see you just turned 50 and that you are 6’5.” Did you play basketball?

Yes, in college and in the pros for a while, in Australia. I still play as often as I can. Great way to reduce stress.

You could say that. I’m the U.S. Secretary of Education.

I’m enjoying it.

Lots of stress in your job?

I have three kids in school now, and they are under a lot of stress these days. I can’t imagine what it’s like to be in your shoes.

That’s good to hear. So, let’s start by testing your blood.

What’s that for?

I’m going to withdraw all your blood and have it tested. The average male has about 8 pints of blood, but you’re a big man and you might have as many as 10 pints. I don’t want to miss a drop.

Huh?

What are you talking about?

All of it? Why? Can’t you just take out a few CC’s and test that? Isn’t that enough to tell you all you need to know?

Well, I could, but then again, so could you.

I just figured you’d want me to treat you the way you treat everyone else. You know, ‘When in Rome….’

Do you know how often I have to explain this to parents like you? Testing every child every year is the only way to know what’s going on.

You insist on testing every kid, every year, when you could learn everything you need to know about schools by testing a carefully drawn sample of students. I just figured that what’s sauce for the goose….

Let’s get started on drawing your blood. It will take about three, maybe four hours in all.

I'm going to find myself a new doctor!

You’re lucky. You have a choice….
