    Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

    Post by Gypsy on Thu 3 May 2012 - 18:21

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


    This is how it manifests itself:

    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 head towards the garage, I notice mail on the porch table that I picked up from the postman earlier. I decide to go through it before I wash the car.

    I put my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the recycling box under the table, and notice that the recycling box is full. So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the recycling first.

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

    I take my cheque book off the table and notice that there is only one cheque left.

    My extra cheques are in the desk in my study, so I go into the house to my desk where
    I find the cup of coffee I'd been drinking. I'm going to look for my cheques but first I need to push the coffee aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. The coffee is getting cold, and I decide to make another cup..

    As I head toward the kitchen with the cold coffee, a vase of flowers on the worktop catches my eye - the flowers need water.

    I put the coffee on the worktop 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 put the glasses back down on the worktop, fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote control. Someone left it on the kitchen table.

    I realise 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 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 put 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 cold cup of coffee sitting on the kitchen work-surface,

    The flowers don't have enough water,

    There is still only 1 cheque in my cheque 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 bloody day and I'm really tired.

    I realise 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!
