    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 garbage can under the table,

    and notice that the can is full.

    So I decide to put the bills back on the table & 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 .

    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 had 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

    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,

    and I don't remember what I did with the car keys

    Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done,

    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!!

    Been there, done it. But mine had the dogs involved that needed to go outside, while letting the dogs out, saw the pool needed water, while adding water to pool, decided I could use a drink also, went to get glass realized that dishes neede to be done, after doing the dishes, dogs were crying to go out, and the cycled started again.

    But, I'm breathing, and looking at the top side of my lawn. Life is good

    I'm fairly certain this can be artificially simulated.
