Some of you may be aware of my total inability to carry on a proper conversation while doing anything else simultaneously. This was verified once again tonight, when over the course of two phone conversations I managed to spectacularly burn three things: our dinner, a pot, and one of our kitchen chairs. The pot and chair are utterly and completely ruined. But fortunately the night wasn't a total bust, as Richard and I will eat almost anything, even blackened lentils.
This is just a public service announcement to remind you to ask me if I am doing anything that requires even marginal brainpower before you strike up a conversation with me. If I am making your dinner at the time, it's probably for your own good.
