Wish I Had a Camera

Dean and I had some pizza and coffee at Mioposto today, and as we were leaving the restaurant we saw a young woman (she was either a mom or a baby-sitter/nanny). She had one baby strapped to her front, she was holding the hand of a toddler with her left hand, she was holding a dog by a leash with her right hand, and she was pushing a stroller (carrying another baby!) with same right hand. All the while she was holding a cell phone between her right shoulder and ear, and talking, oblivious to anybody around her, or the children or pets in her charge -- and jaywalking across the street in traffic!! Seemingly unaware of the traffic she was holding up.

We could not believe it. I wished I had had a camera.

I guess the only thing that was missing was she could have been smoking a cigarette, too. And eating a chalupa.

We are a society of multi-taskers. Sigh.

"A chalupa!" Peter, you are funny.
