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 my car needs washing.



As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mailbox earlier.



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



I lay my car keys down 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 checkbook off the table, and see that there is only 1 check left.



My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking.



I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to move the Coke so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the Coke is getting warm and decide I should 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 to be watered. I set the Coke down on the counter, and I 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 I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table.



I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will be looking for the remote, but won't remember 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 down 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 checkbook,

* 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 day long, 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 favor, will you? Forward this message to everyone you know, because I don't remember to whom it has been sent.



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




GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY. GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL. LAUGHING AT YOURSELF IS THERAPEUTIC.
