I believe when women had a full day of cooking for the family....
How old are you again, Foofie? It seems you're stuck in the 50s. In today's
times, one cannot help but be multi-tasking - it's a cruel and competitive world
out there and one has to keep up.
I for one actually like multi-tasking!
You do know that a Foofie never tells his age! Regardless, the 1950's had a lot more benefits than just not having to multi-task, to keep up with society's demands.
I personally think that multi-tasking is a "false friend," in that we do not realize that we are truly not enjoying each task to its maximum enjoyment. There is also the safety concern, since there are the sound bites about driving and talking on one's cell phone, for example.
If you enjoy multi-tasking, then you might be showing Darwin's theory in action, in my opinion (survival of the fittest).
If you did not experience the 1950's in the U.S.A. (Europe was still recovering from the "obsessions" of an older generation, in my opinion), then you might not truly appreciate that time of an inexpensive quality of life for those who were part of the mainstream society.
Thank you for your opinion. It did interest me, since as a sample size of one, it validates, in a small way, my belief that many younger people are quite adapted to the "frenzy" of today's society, even to the point of enjoying the frenzy, in this one way of multi-tasking.
