A.A.A.D.D......A new disease??

Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D. - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

This is how it manifests:


I decide to water my garden.
As I turn on the hose in the driveway,

I look over at my car and decide it needs washing.


As I start toward the garage,

I notice mail on the porch table that

I brought up from the mail box earlier.


I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.


I lay my car keys on the table,

Put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table,

And notice that the can is full.


So, I decide to put the bills back

On the table and take out the garbage first.


But then I think,

Since I'm going to be near the mailbox

When I take out the garbage anyway,

I may as well pay the bills first.


I take my cheque book off the table,

And see that there is only one cheque left.


My extra cheques are in my desk in the study,

So I go inside the house to my desk where

I find the can of Coke I'd been drinking.


I'm going to look for my cheques,

But first I need to push the Coke aside

So that I don't accidentally knock it over.


The Coke is getting warm,

And I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.


As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke,

A vase of flowers on the counter

Catches my eye--they need water.


I put the Coke on the counter and

Discover my reading glasses that

I've been searching for all morning.


I decide I better put them back on my desk,

But first I'm going to water the flowers.


I set the glasses back down on the counter,

Fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote.

Someone left it on the kitchen table.


I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV,

I'll be looking for the remote,

But I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table,

So I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs,

But first I'll water the flowers.


I pour some water in the flowers,

But quite a bit of it spills on the floor.


So, I set the remote back on the table,

Get some towels and wipe up the spill.


Then, I head down the hall trying to

Remember what I was planning to do.


At the end of the day:


The car isn't washed


The bills aren't paid


There is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter


The flowers don't have enough water,


There is still only 1 cheque in my cheque book,


I can't find the remote,


I can't find my glasses,


And I don't remember what I did with the car keys.


Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today,

I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all damn day,

And I'm really tired.


I realize this is a serious problem,

And I'll try to get some help for it,

But first I'll check my e-mail........


Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!
