I have recently been diagnosed with AAADD -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 KNOW I WAS BUSY ALL DAY!
I realize this condition is serious . . .
I'd get help . . .
BUT FIRST . . . I think I'll check my e-mail.
