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.

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
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.
