So this morning, I headed to my 9am class. As usual, I was 5 minutes early so I went about setting up the laptop and preparing for the class.
At 9am sharp, there were no students in sight. That was a little odd because usually, there’d always be the early birds who will be waiting for me to unlock the door.
Maybe there’s a bad traffic jam, I thought to myself.
Soon, it was 9.05am. The room was still empty.
I quickly checked the room time-table that is stuck on each classroom door and under Thursday 9am, I saw my name.
I’m in the correct room but where are the students?
This was getting strange.
I decided to look at my phone where I have my time-table. The room indicated for my 9am class is on the same floor BUT AT THE OTHER END OF THE HALL!
I threw everything (including my laptop) into my bag and quickly (as quickly as a pregnant woman can, that is) headed towards the correct classroom.
As I turned the corner, I spotted familiar faces. The students looked a little puzzled because I have never been late for class. One of them quipped: Yeah, we were wondering if something happened or class was cancelled because it’s already 9.05am but there was no sign of you.
I had to apologise profusely and told the class how my pregnancy brain messed with me this morning.
And yes, today is a WEDNESDAY, not Thursday. Doh.
So. Pregnancy brains. Truth or myth? Definitely a truth for me this morning. Pfffft.
