I'm a serious multi-tasker while driving. Back in the day, I could smoke a cigarette, drink a cup of coffee, change lanes, talk on the cell phone, change the radio station, balance my checkbook, tie my shoes, shift gears and steer, all while avoiding running off the road or into the unsuspecting driver ahead behind or next to me.
I don't do all that anymore, seeing as I don't smoke and my transmission is an automatic.
Imagine my surprise when I recently found it was only possible for me to do two of the following three things simultaneously.
- Read a book.
- Lay in bed.
- Eat Chinese food.
If I'd been driving, I'll bet I could have it pulled off.
