10. I could have sworn I put the homework inside a Klein bottle, but this morning I couldn't find it. 9. I took time out to snack a doughnut and a cup of coffee. I spent the rest of the night trying to figure which one to dunk. 8. I couldn't figure out whether i am the square of negative one or i is the square root of negative one. 7. I locked the paper in my trunk but a fourdimensional dog got in and ate it. 6. I have a solar powered calculator and it was cloudy. 5. I was watching the World Series and got tied up trying to prove that it converged. 4. I have the proof, but there isn't room to write it in this margin. 3. I could only get arbitrarily close to my textbook. I couldn't actually reach it. 2. Isaac Newton's birthday. 1. I accidentally divided by zero and my paper burst into flames.
