A.A.A.D.D.

Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D.
Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. (Though, I was not, but I had to share this funny and true email I received)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 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 find the cup of coffee I’d been drinking.

I’m going to look for my checks, But first I need to push the Coffee aside,
So that I don’t accidentally knock it over.
The Coffee is getting cold, And I decide to make another cup.

As I head toward the kitchen with the cold coffee,
A vase of flowers on the counter Catches my eye–they need water.

I put the Coffee 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 cold cup of coffee 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 darn day,
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 the heck I’ve sent it to.
