This is typical woman behavior. Typical man behavior is doing one and only one thing at a time.

Yep - normal for women. I'm always doing a few things at once. My dad is always getting mad at me because I'm eating, looking at the computer & doing something for the kids while taking to him. He'll get all huffy until I repeat back everything he just said.

Men don't get it. Total woman thing.

Tony, I don't know if you and your wife have children. In my case, once I had them, I was amazed at all the things that I could do at the same time. LOL

Well, here's one female who is a terrible multi-tasker. I can do one and only one thing at a time and while I'm doing it, I can't tolerate any distractions. I wish I could multi-task - it would make life much easier.

Just the basics:
Are two-year-olds too young to go to Disney? It depends upon their temperament. One way to find out: take them there. After all, they're only young for a short time. You're sure to enjoy your trip if you plan ahead! AND - don't forget those all-important dining reservations; they fill up so fast it's ridiculous. Have I forgotten anything? Oh yes - I'd advise you to carry a small purse or bag for loose items so you don't lose them on rides. You'll have a great vacation if you follow my advice!

Now my wife has only got 2 eyes, on the front of her head, just like everyone else. So how can she do 5 things at once ? [I] haven't even mentioned she was having a cup of tea and a biscuit as well.
She can do it because that's just what we Mom's do. We have to keep track of EVERYTHING around us, and we pay attention to it all. All her extra pairs of eyes are covered by her hair so that the mere mortals (men and children) can't see them.

Just Because It's True....

What would have happened if it had been three Wise Women instead of three Wise Men?

They would have asked directions,
arrived on time,
helped deliver the baby,
cleaned the stable,
made a casserole,
and brought practical gifts.

But what they would have said when they left...?
"Did you see the sandals Mary was wearing with that gown?"
"That baby doesn't look anything like Joseph!"
"Virgin, my ****! I knew her in school!"
"Can you believe that they let all of those disgusting animals in the house?"
"I heard that Joseph isn't even working right now!"
"And that donkey that they are riding has seen better days too!"
"Want to bet on how long it will take until you get your casserole dish back?"

Another multi-tasker here.

I live with 3 men (well, one man and two teenage boys) and only one of them is able to multi-task.
