Drove the shuttle to the SAT exam this morning.
Zac and 2 friends, carpooling to the big event.
We stopped at house #3 to pick up our final passenger, and I commented on how prepared he was with his #2 pencils and his calculator.
Zac jumped in, "Do you have your photo ID and your admission ticket?"
Before #3 could reply, #2 blurted, "PHOTO ID! Photo ID......"
But it was too close for comfort, there would be no turning around to retrieve the missing item. We discussed whether or not #2 would be allowed in to the exam without photo ID when #2 admitted, "I forgot my admission ticket."
At which point, said testee determined that this would not be SAT day after all.
Luckily, a previously taken (and good score) SAT will suffice for #2.
Do you remember your SAT day?
I remember a good friend who had stayed up too late the night before (with the help of No Doze) to complete a big homework assignment. On the day of SAT I ran into her in the bathroom on a break, and she was a wreck. One of the smartest kids in our class, and a total mess on the morning of her SAT.
God bless all the SAT takers today!
