A timely confession

I always thought of myself as a pretty capable multitasker.  Today I have to admit, openly and without prejudice, that those days are gone.

Case in point: this morning I made my coffee while I toasted my whole wheat bread  and I brushed my teeth while the two machines took their time; then I ate toast and marmalade very neatly sweeping the crumbs into the sink while using my e-reader; then I went in to turn on the shower as it sometimes takes a while to get hot water since our hot water tank is 13 floors up from us; then I listened to the news and made my bed while waiting for the washer to finish the first load; I chose my clothes and laid them out on the bed, ready to jump into when I got out of the shower.  That would be the shower that had been running for 20 minutes.  That would be the shower that runs in the apartment of a green building.  That would be the shower that would have set off the fire alarm if I hadn't wiggled, slick as an eel, through a 6 inch opening while shooing the steam back into the room with a giant towel.

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.  Amen.


  1. Except for the non-green shower faux pas, sounds like you multitasked the heck out of your morning.

  2. Green police from Southern California have just left on their bicycles to hunt you down. Bad Lorna, but hey, we're not perfect, are we? I wore your orange jacket to work today and your red jacket yesterday.

  3. hmmm very efficient and you're forgiven the shower faux pas; i'm sure it won't happen again.

  4. There is a distinct flaw in the 'green'-ness of your plumbing. Hmmm and you pay for this advanced ecological feature? BTW this multi-tasking that you do would exhaust me even before I started my day. I got my first chuckly of the day, dear. Hang in there. LOL!

  5. I got worn out just reading this!!
