Normally I don't pass around these kinds of things...but this just came to me via email this morning (don't know who wrote it), and if this doesn't describe me....
Recently,* I was diagnosed with "A.A.A.D.D" aka* "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&nb sp; 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 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,
0Abut* 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 Pepsi 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 che ck 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.
Don't* laugh --- if this isn't you yet ....**** your* day is coming!!!
