A.A.A.D.D


Friday, April 11, 2008

How many of us have suffered 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,
I may as well pay the bills first.


I take my cheque book off the table,
And see that there is only one cheque left.

My extra cheques 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 cheques,
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 realise 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 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 cheque in my cheque 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 damn day,

And I'm really tired !!!
