Wine and multi-tasking do not mix (very well).

Or this could alternately be titled, "Lynette doesn't know how to use a phone."

Let me set the stage for you.

Last night, I got the kids to bed, came downstairs, poured  myself another glass of wine, and sat down to watch American Idol via Tivo.  I can't stand to watch it live and not be able to fast forward over Paula's babbling non-sense.  

I got through Allison's performance and felt a little let down.  I love that girls voice, but I wasn't feeling her with that song choice.  Plus her choice of clothing didn't do her any favors.  

Next up was Anoop - dawg.  He has been hit and miss these past few weeks so I was curious to see how he would perform this evening.  And let me just say I was blown away.  He sealed the deal for me and prompted me (for the first time this season) to pick up the phone and vote.  And I was only 2 contestants in. 

So here I am dialing with the phone in one hand and holding my wine in the other hand while watching the other Idols do their thing and attempting to fast forward over Paula and the commercials.  At one point I was so caught up with the multi-tasking going on that I pushed redial on the phone and put the wine glass up to my ear instead of the phone.  Luckily I caught myself before I caused a mess.  But I had to laugh.  

That reminds me of the time when I was back in high school.  I was in a deep sleep when the phone rang.  I didn't have my contacts in and couldn't find my glasses in time to reach for the phone.  I ended up picking up the TV remote control and talking into it thinking it was the phone.  Duh!     


  1. Ha!! Thanks for the laugh. ;)
    I'm starting to think you & I should never drink wine together. I would have been doing the same thing.

    Btw, I did change around my blog template a little. Trying to make it a little neater.

  2. Hee hee hee.

    I NEVER watch TV and some how the ONLY show I've been watching in the last gosh, two years is the current American Idol. What's up with that? I like Adam and Allison too.
