    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 checks,

    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
