 I have recently been diagnosed with AAADD -
Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder This is how it goes . . .

 I decide to clean off the front patio.
 I start to the patio and notice mail on the desk that needs to be
 taken down to the Post Office. OK, I'm going to the Post
 Office . . .

 BUT FIRST I'm going to go through the mail that was delivered.
 I lay the car keys down on desk. After discarding the junk mail, I
 notice the trash can is full. OK, I'll just put the bills on my
 desk . . .

 BUT FIRST I'll take the trash out.
 But since I'm going to be near the mailbox, I'll address a few
 bills . . .

 Yes, Now where is the checkbook?

 Oops.. there's only one check left. Where did I put the extra

 Oh, there is my empty coffee cup from last night on my desk.
 I'm going to look for those checks . . .

 BUT FIRST I need to put the cup back in the kitchen.
 I start to head for the kitchen and look out at my balcony, notice
 the flowers need a drink of water because of the extreme heat. I put
 the cup on the counter and there's my extra pair of glasses on the
 kitchen counter. What are they doing here?

 I'll just put them away . . .

 BUT FIRST need to water those plants.
 I head for the door and . . .
 Aaaagh! Someone left the TV remote on the wrong spot.
 Okay, I'll put the remote away and water the plants on my balcony .
 . .

 BUT FIRST I need to find those checks.

 END OF DAY: The patio has not been cleaned, bills still unpaid, cup
 still on the counter, checkbook still has only one check left, lost
 my car keys . . .

 And, when I try to figure out how come nothing got done today, I'm
 baffled because . . .

 I realize this condition is serious . . .
 I'd get help . . .

 BUT FIRST . . . I think I'll check my e-mail.
