They say we can't multi task.
Well I beg to agree.
I was cooking a few curries the other day. My limit at multi task is to cut enough onions for three curries and get out the spices and stuff for all of them. From then on I can only make one dish at a time. This stuff I see when people cook several dishes within the same time span is beyond me. I can get my feet and hands to do different things at the same time though, which comes in handy for the drums.
Whilst I was in the kitchen cooking one dish at a time, and rather enjoying myself with a good kicking rocky playlist going on in the background, I heard some singing. I glanced across at the ten year old who was sitting at the computer. She was on MSN messenger. She was also playing an online game. She was also playing a game on her Nintendo thing.
She was also happily singing along with Thom Yorke on "Just".
"You do it to yourself you do
And that's what really hurts is
You do it to yourself just you"
I looked at her with that look of love that all Fathers know. Proud but hurt.
Proud that my ten year old daughter can be so good at multi tasking at such a young age. Chatting on MSN, playing an online game and playing a Nintendo game, all while singing along to Radiohead in their good heavier days, before they went all weird and Kid A ish.
Hurt because I'd cut my finger on the knife while I was watching her and trying to cut the onions at the same time.
