      Thank goodness there’s a name for this disorder.
      Somehow I feel better, even though I have!          

                  

                      

      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...
      Don’t laugh—if this isn’t you yet, your day is coming!
