Today I had a final exam in a master’s level auditing class. The last time I had auditing was nearly 30 years ago (if you round to the nearest decade.) A lot has changed since then, but the questions are as tricky as ever. Here’s an example:
I don’t know if it was the sub-optimal combination of too little sleep and not enough studying, but my brain shorted out on the last question.
It was like playing hide and seek with a feral cat who’s food dish is empty. You ain’t got a chance. The more I demanded my brain recall the information, the further it sank into the deep, dark recesses of my synapses, until, Poof! It was gone like a nano-particle in a physics experiment.
What I wonder is how come I can’t forget about a half-empty package of Oreos?
