Missing Time

In Pop Culture on November 21, 2006 at 9:13 pm

I swear I am being abducted by aliens at least on a daily basis. How do I know this? I am periodically (and perpetually) missing time (usually about seven minutes a shot) in my day.

For those not aware of such abduction lore (yet another reason to watch The X-Files on DVD), the conspiracy goes that when aliens abduct humans, the humans’ watches record that time has passed, though they have absolutely no memory of it.

The ways this phenomenon manifests itself in my world are multiple:

  • getting my four children from our apartment into the van – missing time
  • checking just one blog or news site – missing time
  • walking across campus (usually a two-minute walk) – missing time
  • trying to decide which of my assignments/projects to tackle next – missing time

This “missing time” thing is annoying. Maybe Thanksgiving will stop the abductions.

I want to believe.
