On occasion, I’ve been know to make a mistake or two.  Ordinarily, I would never admit it, but today I had witnesses.

Last night it was not until a very late (or early) hour that I was finally able to fall asleep.  Naturally, after my first class this morning, I thought nap was a good idea for my 2 hour break.  Being as I am, I made sure to set an alarm to wake me 40 minutes before my class at noon.  I double and triple checked to make sure it was set correctly.  After waking up from my nap, I looked at my alarm and found that it was already 10:57!

I had just woken up, and for some reason was convinced my class was at 11:00.  I bolted out of bed, threw my laptop in my backpack, and made the decision that it’s better to be late than to skip.  However, not ever skipping or being late to class, I decided that I would run to class and just sneak into the lecture hall when I got there.

I was halfway to class, when I saw one of my classmates walking, in the opposite direction I was headed. Completely out of breath, I asked her why she wasn’t going to class.  Did I feel stupid when she said, “Dosage Forms is at 12 o’clock, and it’s only 11.”  I thought about it for a second or two, and then explained to her exactly what had happened.  She found it humorous, as did I.  Of course I was quite embarrassed, but I deserved to be.
