Aaadd - Know The Symptoms....

Someone sent this to me...   seemed to fit this group...  LOL

AAADD - KNOW THE SYMPTOMS . . . PLEASE READ!

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

Recently, 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 rubbish bin under the table,
and notice that the bin is full.

So, I decide to put the bills back
on the table and take out the rubbish first.

But then I think,
since I'm going to be near the mailbox
when I take out the rubbish anyway,
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 cup of coffee I'd been drinking.

I'm going to look for my cheques,
but first I need to push the coffee aside
so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

The coffee is getting cold,
and I decide to make another cup.

As I head toward the kitchen with the cold coffee,
a vase of flowers on the counter
catches my eye - they need water.

I put the coffee 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 cold cup of coffee 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.

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 favour.
Forward this message to everyone you know,
because I don't remember who the heck I've sent it to.

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

You've just described my home life to a T! (uh oh, I forgot my mug of tea, I bet it's too steeped now!)
