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 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 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 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 flavour.
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!!

Wine does not make you FAT it makes you LEAN...
....against tables, chairs, floors, walls and ugly people.

Having time is a measure of enthusiasm:rolleyes:
