KNOW THE SYMPTOMS.....PLEASE READ!  

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 can of?Pepsi I’d been drinking.  

I’m going to look for my checks,
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 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?Pepsi 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....
