Partway through my vacation, I had a terrible realization that there was an important and time-sensitive work task that I had failed to do. By the time I realized it, it was too late even to call my boss and ask her to do it in my stead. I was, naturally, chagrined, but at that point, what was there to do? So I put it out of my mind until heading to the office this morning, when the topic resurfaced as a knot in the pit of my stomach.

I arrived at the office and was immediately handed proof that I had done the task. I have no recollection of having done so, however. And it's not an auto-pilot kind of task! I am simultaneously relieved and disturbed.
