      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 Coke I’d been drinking.

      I’m going to look for my cheques, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don’t accidentally knock it over.

      The Coke is getting warm, and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

      As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the counter
      Catches my eye—they need water.

      I put the Coke 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 Coke 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....

      Do me a favor.
      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!!
