This is how I operate. How 'bout you?

Provided by Kathy MacKay from Tiffany Q. Lyman

Does this sound familiar? Howling

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 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 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 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 favor. 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!
