Inspired by Sunday Scribblings prompt #241 – Bright Idea
My bright idea is that multitasking is highly overrated!
When I was young I watched my mother multitask with ease
She did it so well, we delighted to tell
Of the time when she stuck her head in the ice box for cheese
But was thinking instead of something someone had said
And in the confusion she forgot to withdraw her poor head!
When I was grown, I thought I’d find that “multitask” a breeze
After all, I knew what not to do when I went to get the cheese!
Then one day with thoughts far away and my hand down deep in the drain
I flipped on the switch, and I cried in my pain this moral refrain:
“Tis trouble yer askin’, not worth multitaskin’ if you’re in the same bloodline with me!”
