    Got this in an email from a middle aged friend...lol

    "A.A.A.D.D.

    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 there 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 che ckbook, 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.


    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!

    the question is

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

    What was on the hall table that made you put the bills down there on your way back from the mailbox? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
