I feel like I'm at the doctor's office about to have my blood pressure taken. I always feel a strange pressure to perform up to par, to deliver a low-but-healthy reading. But mine never is the first go-round. "It's a little high," the nurse says, raising her eyebrow. Later, I ask the doctor to check it again. And somehow, always, this reading is normal. Once the pressure's off, so to speak.

The point is, well, you get it.
