Age activated attention deficit disorder 

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 it needs washing. 
As I start toward the garage,

I notice 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 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 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 I’d 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.
The Coke is getting warm,

and I decide to 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 water.
I put the Coke on the counter 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 set the glasses back down on the counter,

fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote.

Someone left it on the kitchen table.
I realize 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 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 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,

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….

Don’t laugh — if this isn’t you yet, your day is coming!!
