  • Do you have AAADD



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

    I was diagnosed 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 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 Pepsi I'd 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.

    The Pepsi is getting warm,

    and I decide to 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 water.

    I put the Pepsi 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 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 Pepsi 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,
    • 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!!

      I started to read this thread but got distracted after a paragraph or two. Can't remember what distracted me but I'm sure it was important.

        You know what they say, "The mind is the second thing to go". I forget what the first thing is.

          Watch out dammit, I resemble these remarks!

            Whenever my wife accuses me of not listening to her I tell her I'm MADD.
