  • A.A.A.D.D. - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder...

    Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder. Somehow I feel better, even though I have it!!

    Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D. - Age Activated
    Attention Deficit Disorder. This is how it manifests itself:

    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 check book off the table and see that there is only
    one check left.

    My extra checks are in my desk in the stud, 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 checks, 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 check in my check 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....

    Do me a favour. Forward this message to everyone you know
    because I don't remember who the hell I've sent it to.




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

    I don't recognise the symptom - but it does sound like my husband when it comes time to getting anything done!
