Headless Prawn

I am even more blur than a big headed prawn. I was a totally headless prawn today. I did something quite unlike myself. I missed a lab mark-up session. I hope that it did not cause too much of a stir.

I think that the chief technician in charge of the lab was probably a little surprised. I came in very early in the morning today, before classes started, to hand in a small deck of reports that I had just finished marking last night. I met the chief technician and passed it to him. Then, I went to the next building to work on the 3rd year VLSI project.

All the while, I felt like something was amiss (you know, the kind of feeling you get that you cannot even sit properly). But I didn't know what was wrong. Then, it occurred to me that my mark-up day was today. But by then, it was already 10.45am. So, I checked my schedule and realised that I had missed the entire mark-up session! And I got an email at 11.15am from the chief technician telling me that I had missed this morning's mark-up session. Sigh...

Blur case. I really have no excuse. But it was an honest mistake. It wasn't like I was still asleep in bed. I had just forgotten about the session. The chief technician must be wondering where I was, since he saw me come in this morning.

I am really getting dumber and dumberer.
