Have you talked to your friend for 4 hours in your landline?

Well, it was the first time for me. My friend and I were surprised. It started when my friend called me on my smartphone when I just arrived from shopping in the city. I told her to call again but on the landline so I don´t have to hold the phone and could listen through the microphone while forming the cookies which I have already started making. I didn´t want to just listen to her and not doing what I have planned for that evening. So the batter of my chocolate rum cookies were formed and baked. Then I started a new batch of those cookies. While talking and listening to my friend, I was weighing the ingredients, setting the alarm clock for the cookies, getting off the cookies from the oven, taking photos of the cookies and I started clearing the things for dishwashing. My 2 batches of chocolate rum cookies were done and tasted. They were 154 pieces. Yes, I counted. Remaining ingredients returned to the kitchen cupboard, washed the dishes and still, my friend and I were still talking to each other. Every now and then, we talked about the cookies I have baked. Every now and then, I went to the bedroom, changing my clothes, went to the toilet and put the clothes for washing in the washing machine. The phone was still with me. Then I was finished cleaning the kitchen. I heated my mongo soup in the microwave for my dinner and went in the living room in front of my computer. I was ready for writing. My friend was still talking. Then she asked what I was doing then. I said it´s already 3 hours since she called and I was finished baking the cookies and cleaning everything. I was already relaxing. We ended up talking for 4 hours and 25 seconds. Because the battery of her landline phone was so low, we had stop. It was a very long talk. Wow! Never had a lost topic. I was about to write this post last night but I didn´t have time. So what do you think? I was so surprised about myself that I was able to do a lot of things at the same time. What about you? Well, I post the photo when I am with my Ipad. The cookies are in my Ipad gallery. Thanks for reading.

Haha! That's pretty funny. You don't need to visit when you can talk for so long!

Wow lol there is no way I could come up with things to talk about so long. I hate talking on the phone it makes me so nervous. That is a lot of cookies you made and I'm impressed you were able to measure the ingredients and make the cookies while doing all that talking. I get distracted and measure wrong or burn things so I could never talk on the phone at the same time.

I mostly listened when I was weighing the ingredients. Then, I forgot if I have put sugar to my batter and so I tasted it. I was destructed but managed well. Mostly it was my friend talking as I had sore throat from my flu. The cookies were not burned as I used the alarm clock. I think I am already good at multitasking. Thanks for commenting. Enjoy your Christmas celebration @shaggin

I learned to multitask when my kids were babies but I’ve never gotten to the point I could say I’m good at it

You could have most likely done five or six hours if her battery wasn't low. At least you got things done while talking.

I think my longest conversation was 2 hours with my best friend of 40+ years. My conversations with my best friend here, are almost as long.

I've talked to my friend that long but not on a landline. But from my laptop. We even watched movies together. And at the same time I was cleaning my room.

You may come close @Tampa_girl7. I didn't know that I could do it for hours. At least it was my friend who did a lot of talking.

We don't have a landline at this point and not sure if there is enough to talk about on my side, but it might be interesting to try.

Before I got my smart phone I had to talk to people on my land line and it was expensive. I will ask people to call and leave a message on my landline and I call them on my Smartphone. I turn off my Smartphone if do not need to use it to save on my battery and so that is why I ask people to call my landline and leave a message there.

You were able to fix those cookies while talking on the food and that was a good thing.

it's easier to do on a landline because you don't worry about the bill, right? i love your cookies - the flavor and the shapes. why did you make so many?
