Keep an Eye On It
One time back in middle school, I was helping my mother in the kitchen to prepare for our Halloween party. She told me to keep an eye on the oven for her while it cooked. I sure as heck wasn't going to use my own eye, so I went around the neighborhood, looking for a dead squirrel, or cat or something. I couldn't find one, unfortunately, and when I got back, my mother was yelling at me about letting the dinner burn. I pointed out that she knows I can't multi-task and that she shouldn't have sent me off looking for eyes if she wanted me to keep the food from burning. After that, I wasn't allowed back in the kitchen.
