External Audits, Football, Coffee and Blood Pressure

We just finished Periodic Audit #3 by DNV. Before I post the results I have some humor:
The first day of the audit (Tuesday), I had to leave my auditor with my boss while I went through a "Health and Wellness" screening, one of our insurance company's way of finding issues early in order to hold down costs.

Part of the screening included a blood pressure check and mine was 138/80. The current guidelines put anything between 130 and 140 as "pre-hypertensive" so you get urged to see your doctor for preventive action. I pulled out my Red Cross card and pointed out that over the last 12 months, I have 6 blood pressure data points from screenings before a blood donation with an average of 120/78, 114/74 min and 130/80 max (ever the quality engineer).
Nurse: Icy, what would you say is causing today's reading?
Icy: Let's see, I stayed up until 2AM last night eating chips, drinking beer and watching my beloved Buckeyes get creamed in the Championship. I got up at 6AM and I have had 3 cups of coffee instead of the usual one so I could be alert since I am in the middle of an ISO/TS external audit. AND, right now the auditor is talking to my boss and I am not there to make sure that doesn't go into the weeds.
Nurse: Well, considering all of that, I'd say you handle stress in your life pretty well.
