A day in the clinic

The other day, I went to the clinic to have my annual test. I was bored so I decided to talk to the person next to me. She looked very nervous and sweating. I was curious and asked her if she's there for the annual physical exam, but she answered "no". She was there to have her blood sample taken. It will be needed for the herpes simplex test. But according to her she doesn't have one, the test is only needed for her job application. She explained to me that herpes simplex is not an STD? It's commonly known as cold sores.

I really wanted to talk to her, however, the nurse called me and it was my turn to have my annual test.
