Time to lay to rest one (if not three) of the modern age myths I think. Does anyone actually know of one single Doris who can: Multitasking Do more than one thing at a time and not fuck up all tasks, or triple the time she would have taken if she'd just done one thing at a time? Lateral thinking Concentrate on any subject other than Coronation Street for more than 20 mins? Do anything other than bleat when they come down with a virus, then try to convince us that we'd be worse if we had it? I've had a god awful virus now for just over a week, Saturday was my worst day. I got up at 4am, went to an event I was organising, stood all day in the pissing down, wind swept moorland whilst delegating to a 60 man team.... came home to find the wife in bed shivering and saying..... and I quote: "I think I'm coming down with what you've got, but at least I keep going". Venus and Mars it is then I though... got showered and sank half a bottle of Brandy and watched SNATCH. I still feel like shit... I still haven't stopped working... as I type... her in doors is also in bed.
