    Default A.a.a.d.d.

    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 my car needs washing.

    As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mailbox earlier.

    I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

    I lay my car keys down 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 checkbook off the table, and see that there is only 1 check left.

    My extra checks are in my desk in the office, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking.

    I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to move the Coke so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the Coke is getting warm and decide I should 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 to be watered. I set the Coke down on the counter, and I 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 I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table.


    I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will be looking for the remote, but won't remember 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 down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.

    Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what it was 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 checkbook,
    * 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 day long, and I'm really tired.
