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 rubbish bin under the table, and notice that the bin 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 rubbish
anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my cheque book off the table and see that there is only one cheque left.

My extra cheques 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 cheques 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

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 lounge where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

I pour some water in the flowers but most 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 cheque in my cheque 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 favour.

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!
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

Think I'm past that stage at the moment.

"My lovely car now sold onto a very happy new owner.
I still love this marque and I will still be around, preferred selling to breaking, as a great runner and performer"
