A Single Burnt Cookie...

Hi guys. I've got a cookie baking question --

Every time I make my chocolate chip cookies (which, I'll admit, are the only cookies I make here at school), there is always a single burnt cookie in each batch, while the rest are pretty much perfectly baked. (Uploaded a photo to Imgur: http://imgur.com/Kf6Qb )

At first I thought that there might just be a hotspot in my oven. But then I figured that probably wasn't the case considering that I rotate the pan halfway through, so if this were the case, there would probably be two burnt cookies (right?).

Any thoughts as to what this might be about? It'd be nice to solve the problem, but I'm honestly just curious as to what the issue might be!
