    Do you forget what your doing ?


    Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder.
    Somehow I feel better, even though I sometimes think I have it!!

    Recently, I was diagnosed with possibly having 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 anyway,
    I may as well pay the bills first.

    I take my check book 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 inside the house to my desk where
    I find the can of Coke I'd 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.

    The Coke is getting warm,
    And I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

    As I head toward the20kitchen 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 TVremote.

    Someone left it on the kitchen table.
    I realize 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 in the den 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 check in my check 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.

    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.
    Forward this message to everyone you know,
    Because I don't remember who the hell I've sent it to.

    Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!!

    So, what is wrong with that? That happens to me all the time.

    Sounds like a typical day in my shop. My wife asked me what I have been up to and I can't tell her, but hours are gone and there is no progress on my project.
