We have to have this one for a really great laugh and I know this doesnt pertain to you does it Bar-bar...LOL it comes with age ROFLOL

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 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 mail box 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 check book off the table, and see that there is
only 1 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
.. I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the
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
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
water and suddenly I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the
... 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 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 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.
