Story: Multi-tasking

Mary multi-tasks. She is a modern person.

At work, she takes orders on the phone and while chatting with clients types the order into the computer while checking her three open windows for more. She goes out with the girls for drinks. Once she had three relationships at the same time.

As soon as she gets home, Mary pops a frozen dinner in the microwave, boots up, goes online, opens her email, starts file sharing, brings up an all news cable channel; when the microwave beeps she gets dinner and eats while reading email, listening to the news and making comments in her favorite chat room. The dinner does not taste like much, but she is not thinking about it. The email is mostly spam, but she only glances at it, maybe missing a few interesting ones. When the chat room gets boring, she types an odd word into Google, just to see what comes up.

In bed she gives herself multiple orgasms.

Mary is in group therapy.
