Is this what us younger people have to look forward to ?

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
checkbook, 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!
