Weird Letters with Creepy Small Print

Today Joel and I received two letters in the mail. The return address is "Department of Homeland Security." It is still a little unsettling to receive something from them even when one is expecting it. The letters that came today invite us to be fingerprinted in St. Paul. It is important to make sure that we are not pursuing adoption and crime.

Here's the creepy small print.
"If you have open wounds or bandages/casts when you appear, the USCIS may reschedule your appointment if it is determined your injuries will interfere with taking your biometrics." 

Really? I don't even know what my "biometrics" are but if I have wounds that are serious enough to interfere with them, I think I might be in the emergency room instead. Good thing this bit of information was offset with a large, bold, capitalized WARNING! or, had I received a biometrically interfering open wound before next Saturday, I might not have thought a thing of it.
