A. A. A. D. D

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm sure some of you can relate, and those that can't, well . . . this might explain why we are the way we are.


Recently, I was diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D. - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.


This is how it manifests:

I decide to wash my car.

As I start toward the garage, I notice that here is mail on the hall table.

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

I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the trash can under the table, and notice that the trash can is full.

So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the trash first.

But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the trash anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my checkbook 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 to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had 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.

I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should 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 to be watered.

I set the Coke down on the counter, and I 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 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 kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

I splash some water on the flowers, but most of it spills on the floor.

So, I set the remote back down 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 aren't watered, there is still only one check in my checkbook, 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 day long, and I'm really tired.


Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming! [img]tongue.gif[/img]


GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY.
GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL
LAUGHING AT YOURSELF IS THERAPEUTIC!

Had to reread this joke.

I stopped reading to clean the screen on the laptop, tripped over the cat on the way downstairs, they needed their dinner, fed the cats, got the cleaner and papertowel and cleaned the TV screen, noticed the coffee table was dirty, started off to get the furniture polish, potted a plant I walked by that I've been meaning to do for a couple of weeks now, took out the old pot to put in the trash and saw the Back door needed a screw tightened in the hinge, took the screwdriver and went to the Front Door, took off the front door handle and polished the brass, might as well paint the door while I'm at it, but look, now the porch looks dirty, go get the broom, can't find it but passed some bananas on the counter, made a banana nut bread, did the dishes, and MY! don't these cabinets look dirty, scrubbed them, needed another paper towel or two, went upstairs to pee, and the laptop is in the bathroom open to this page.
