wonder woman

When I was laid up at home for a couple weeks, recovering from a fractured pelvis, I had the opportunity to spend quite a bit of time with Heidi. (She had the unfortunate job of waiting on me hand and foot.) I wish the cirmcumstances had been better, but given the situation, it was kind of nice to spend some quality time together. It’s not that we don’t generally spend a lot of time together, but sometimes our weeks blur by as we’re focused on our own schedules and work problems. Anyway, here’s two things I learned after eavesdropping on Heidi for two weeks:

1) She’s so much more amazing than I had previously thought. I’m able to do about two or three things at a time before my brain starts over-heating. But this woman can juggle ten things at a time without breaking a sweat. I’ve seen her doing yoga while cooking breakfast and running a sales conference call. Absolutely amazing.

2) I’m convinced it would have been impossible to sell mobile phones before they were invented. As much time as I spend in front of a computer doing e-mail my wife spends double the time on a mobile phone. On the car, at home, in the grocery store — she’s talking to customers and handling their issues. Being a non-phone person I don’t know how she does it.
