Multi-lateral thinking. I don’t know if this is a psychological condition or not. But I do know, that, in contrast with my husband, who is more of a linear thinker, I think about many things at one time.

Aside from going to the movies to enjoy myself, I go to the movies to think about my problems. And I come away, having solved them all, made lists mentally and organized the week. And followed the plot at the same time. It’s relaxing really to know that all is handled in my life.

My husband, on the other hand, can watch the most boring movie and pay attention to every detail all the way through.

The only time this movie-going organization gets sticky and I can’t hold onto the plot of the movie, is when there are a lot of facts going on. My brain is incapable, I guess, of holding onto so many layers.

Then I turn to my husband and say, “What just happened?” Needless to say, he gets irritated.
