A. A. A. D. D. -- Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder

I was just diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D. -- Age Activated Attention

Deficit Disorder. This is how it manifests itself: ;

I decide d to water my garden. As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I

looked over at my car and decided my car needs washing.

As I started toward the garage, I noticed that there is mail on the

porch table that I brought up from the mail box earlier. &nbs p;

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

& nbsp;

I lay my car keys down 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 garb age 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 a can of Coke that I had been drinking.

&nb sp;

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. I see that the Coke is

getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep

it cold. & nbsp;

As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the

counter catches my eye--they need to be watered.

&nb sp;

I set the Coke down on the counter, and I discover my reading glasses

that I've been searching for all morning. Then 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 I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table.

I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will be looking for the

remote, but I won't remember that it's on the table, so I decide to put

it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

&nb sp;

I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spilled 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 checkbook,

----I can't find the remote, & nbsp;

----I can't find my glasses,

----and I don't remember what in the world I did with the car keys!

&nb sp;

Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really

baffled, because I know I was busy all day long, 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. &nbs p;

Do me a favor, will you? Forward this message to everyone you know,

because I don't remember to whom it has been sent.


Don't laugh-- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!!!

&nb sp;

Growing older is mandatory.

Growing up is optional.

Laughing at yourself is therapeutic.
