In my late fifties I was still multi tasking at work and at home. My kitchen is literally in the middle of my house. The laundry is right on the other side.
I used to cook, roast, run the dishwasher, wash a load, dry a load, turn on the coffee pot, boil water in the electric tea kettle – all – simultaneously. I was the master of doing it all and all at once.
But one day “it” happened. I had put a load of laundry in the washer and decided I wanted a cup of herbal tea. I heard the noise of water and I poured myself a cup of tea. But the tea in the teabag was still intact and the water was cold. My first thought was that the kettle had broken. I turned it over to see where it was made. Then I heard the noise again. I could not identify it at first but as I turned around, I saw it was my washing machine. I had never even plugged the tea kettle in. Clearly, I can only do ONE machine at a time now.
WAS THIS A SENIOR MOMENT? WHAT DO YOU THINK HAPPENED?
