Where Art Thou, March 12?

As I reviewed my slice of life blog posts in search of a topic to cover for this, my second to last post, I discovered I have actually only made 28 posts when I should have made 29. I skimmed through the posts and checked the dates. I discovered I had somehow failed to post on Thursday, March 12. On the 11th, I posted about what I was thankful for. On the morning of the 13th I posted about pizza. Where, oh where, art thou March 12th post?

I'm experiencing some odd emotions. I'm reminded of the recurring nightmare where it's college finals week and I haven't been to class since the beginning of the semester. I'm always panicking because I know there is just no way I can pass the class and earn the credit. I get upset because I've wasted so much money and lowered my GPA. I am ashamed that I didn't take my education seriously. I avoid eye contact because I know everyone is talking about how they thought I had dropped the class and I don't want to explain to them that I had avoided responsibility. It's an awful dream. I feel as though I'm living it now.

How could I miss a post?   What could have possibly distracted me so greatly that I completely forgot?  I missed the midnight mark a couple of times, but was able to make the posts. This is different. This is bad. I didn't complete the challenge. I'm feeling awful. Is it too late to make up the post!  Will my blog be one slice short?  Can I squeeze in an extra post in the morning and still "count" it?
