I don’t tend to blank that much, though there was this one day I was walking into my apartment with my bank card in my hand, and the next moment, I had no idea where the card was. I searched everywhere in my entryway and couldn’t find it.

Finally went to the bank and got a new one.

Three days later, the old one turned up, under the hallway rug. Personally, I believe it fell into an eddy in the Space-Time Continuum and travelled forward 3 days in time.

What I’m most likely to do is be walking around with a paper in my hand, get distracted by something, put the paper down, forget about it, and then not be able to find it when I need it.

At my school we have to keep a log of when kids go out to the bathroom and when they return. Since I teach Grade 1 and they can’t read a clock, I’m the one who has to write this all down. I must ask the kids for help tracking down the bloody washroom log 3-4 times a day. And I almost never record when they returned.
