    AAADD (Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder)

    This is how Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder 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 my car needs washing.

    As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the porch
    table that I brought up from the mailbox earlier.

    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 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 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 inside the house 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 pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit 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 don't have enough water;

    there is still only one check in my check book;

    I can't find the remote;

    I can't find my glasses;

    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.

    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, will you? Forward this message to everyone you know, because I don't remember to whom it has been sent.

    Don't laugh -- if this isn’t you yet, your day is coming, I think!


    Wait what was I doing a few minutes ago?:doah: :doah:

    Here's my deal:
    I'll get home from work, and start putting things on the counter that I have to take with me the next day....running errands or whatever, or next thing I know its time to go to work and I've forgot that I have to run errands or take something to work or..............what was I talking about?
