Can you beat this brain fart? [View all]

I interviewed a chap from my alma mater for a job – different year and different degree so I did not know him back in the day. During our chat about the school he mentioned that his degree had been conferred by Margaret Thatcher. I responded that I could not remember who had conferred my degree but Maggie must have been after my time.

The other night I was telling my sister about the conversation to which she commented along the lines of – you did get your degree from Margaret Thatcher you idiot, I sat and watched you get it, Mum has photo’s somewhere.

So. The. First. Female. Prime. Minister. Gave. Me. My. Degree.

I shook hands with Maggie. I got given a piece of paper that demonstrated years of slog. And I had no recollection of it. At. All. Now I have been prompted I vaguely remember it but not in any meaningful way.

Seriously? I mean, how ridiculous is that? One might argue I blacked it our for a reason.... LOL - but really?

I challenge you to beat that brain fart!
