Writing in parallel

As I was writing my return address on an envelope right now, I realized toward the end that I was reading it aloud in my head while writing it... but it wasn't synchronized.  I was thinking "Redmond, Wa..." right as I finished writing my zip code.  It was weird.

You'd think that would be distracting, not being in sync, sort of like when people start yelling out numbers when you're trying to concentrate on counting something.

I tend to do the exact opposite in my head and end up skipping words.
