Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder: This Is How It Goes

This is a good one!


I decide to wash the car; I start toward the garage andnotice the mail on the table. OK, I'm going to wash the car,but first I'm going to go through the mail. I lay the carkeys down on the desk, discard the junk mail and Inotice the trash can is full. OK, I'll just put thebills on my desk and take the trash can out, but since I'mgoing to be near the mailbox anyway, I'll pay these fewbills first. Now, where is my check book?OOPS, there's only one check left. My extra checks arein my desk. Oh, there's the coke I was drinking. I'm going to look forthose checks. But first I need to put my coke further away from thecomputer, or maybe I'll pop it into the fridge to keep it coldfor a while. I head towards the kitchen and my flowers catchmy eye; they need some water. I set the coke onthe counter and ooh, oh! There are my glasses. I waslooking for them all morning! I'd better put them awayfirst. I fill the container with water and head for theflower pots —aaaaagh! Someone left theTV remote in the kitchen. We will never think to look in the kitchentonight when we want to watch television so I'd better putit back in the family room where it belongs. I splash somewater into the pots and onto the floor. I throw theremote onto a soft cushion on the sofa and I head backdown the hall trying to figure out what it was I was going to do.

END OF DAY:The car isn't washed, the bills are unpaid, the coke issitting on the kitchen counter, the flowers are halfwatered, the check book still only has one check in it andI can't seem to find my car keys! When Itry to figure out how come nothing got done today, I'mbaffled because I KNOW I WAS BUSY ALL DAY LONG!!!

I realize this is a serious condition and I'll get help,BUT FIRST, I think I'll check my e-mail. Please send thisto everyone you know because I DON'TREMEMBER WHO I'VE SENT THIS TO! But pleasedon't send it back to me or I might send it to you again!!!!!!!!
