Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder?

AAADD

KNOW THE SYMPTOMS.....PLEASE READ!

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:

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 t

  • 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 study,
    so I go inside the house to my desk where
    I find the can of Pepsi I'd been drinking.

    I'm going to look for my checks,
    but first I need to push the Pepsi aside
    so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

    The Pepsi is getting warm,
    and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

    As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi,
    a vase of flowers on the counter
    catches my eye--they need water.

    I put the Pepsi 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.

  • At the end of the day:
    the car isn't washed
    the bills aren't paid
    there's a warm can of Pepsi sitting on the counter
    the flowers don't have enough water,
    there's 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 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 favor.
    Forward this message to everyone you know,
    because I don't remember who I've sent it to.

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

  • Some days I have the attention span of a fruit fly. I think it comes from child birth. With each birth I lost a little bit of intelligence.
