1. A herd of angry, runaway camels stampeded through the week, leaving only its dusty remains.
2. Someone in a time machine (perhaps HG Wells himself) time-traveled and actually stole the week and took it back to another century.
3. It's like when you lose that hour with daylight savings time, but with a week.
4. I am part bear and I hibernated a little early, then woke up when I realized it wasn't even close to winter.
5. A tiny mouse with a locket borrowed from the late Harry Houdini hypnotized me into thinking that a week had actually passed when in fact it didn't. (Which means that the week didn't really disappear, I simply perceived that it did.)
6. Stephen Hawking did it. (I am not sure what he did...but he probably did something since it involves the space-time continuum.)
7. The Force Was Not With Me.
8. I fell asleep in a meeting* and woke up centuries later, kind of like Rip Van Winkle, except that I have to re-experience everything like Bill Murray did in Groundhog Day.

10. (did you get what I just did there^?)
Okay, seriously, I have no idea what happened. It seems like I just blinked and it's Friday. Don't get me wrong. I love Friday!! But come on! I'd like to remember the rest of the days, too!
And, before I forget, I just want to say that my third grade class is loving this book:
|love, love, love, love, love|
Teachers, this is an awesome read-aloud.
Okay...back to find what is left of the week.
Oh, I did get to hear Elana Johnson, Kirsten Hubbard, Jessi Kirby and John Corey Whaley talk about their books on Thursday night. I really wished I could have hung out with such coool authors for a while, but alas, the mommy chauffeur service was in high demand.
*this part may or may not have actually happened.
