Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D. - Age
Activated Attention Deficit Disorder
This is how it manifests:

I decided 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

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, 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 Pepsi that I had been drinking. I'm going to look for my checks,
but first I need to push the Pepsi aside so that I don't accidentally knock
it over. I see that the Pepsi 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 Pepsi, a vase of flowers on the
counter catches my eye. They need to be watered. I set the Pepsi 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, we will be looking for the
remote, but nobody will 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 Pepsi 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.
