Its your fault

If you're following my posts well ,you probably know that I'm learning French at the moment … In fact ,I've been doing this one class a week for 8 months now…. every single Tuesday, you kinda get  the idea that it's not just a random event, it becomes part of my routine ..This week I didn’t go .Why? I forgot to go!
The next day, I had a hospital duty and I forgot to go too! and although I can't say that my work is a fixed routine coz my hours are constantly changing ;there are weeks when I do 36 hours only and others with 70 hrs or sometimes even more .. But if you know that I'm the one who is responsible for setting the schedule for the junior doctors in the department, it's really hard to believe that you can forget a schedule which you both set, print then display for all to follow …
Don’t you worry about my patients … though 3 hours late, I managed to remember my duty…How? I don’t know… I guess I remembered it the same way I forgot about it…
Later that day…
' I'm sorry I brought you all the way to the blood bank ,but you know , O -ve blood should be received personally by a doctor, actually all –ve blood types ,its really scarce'  
'Yea it's ok'
'Now if you can just write down your name and sign here'
It took me a few seconds to write my name down .Why? For a while I couldn’t recall my surname… it was late and I was tired but I don’t think its an excuse to forget your own name! …
I told my dad about forgetting our family name and he was shocked but he managed to say ' it happens'! I think he secretly believes that I totally lost it : )  but you know what's funny ? He blamed it all on my mom .Why? I have no clue. It's one of those peculiar Arabic traditions I guess: P
