Are You Present? I Am....Sometimes

Picture this: You meet up with a friend for coffee. Soon, your phone rings. It's important, so you have to answer. After the call ends, you take a minute to add an event to your calendar before you forget. Your friend uses the time to check her email. Now, what was you were talking about? Your phone goes off again. This time, it's a text from your husband. You'd better respond. Back to the conversation again. By the time you leave, you have not spent more than a few consecutive minutes actually talking to your friend. Instead, you were "multitasking."

Sound familiar? This spoken word tackles the problem.
