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 firstÖ

But then I think,
Since Iím 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 Diet Coke Iíd been drinking.

Iím going to look for my checks,
But first I need to push the Diet Coke aside
So that I donít accidentally knock it over.

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

As I head toward the kitchen with the
Diet Coke,
A vase of flowers on the counter
Catches my eyeĖthey need water.

I put the Diet Coke on the counter and
Discover my reading glasses that
Iíve been searching for all morning.
I decide I better put them back on my desk,
But first Iím 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,
Iíll be looking for the remote,
But I wonít remember that itís on the
kitchen table,
So I decide to put it back in the den where
it belongs,
But first Iíll 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 isnít washed,
The bills arenít paid,
There is a warm can of
Diet Coke sitting on the counter,
The flowers donít have enough water,
There is still only 1 check in my check book,
I canít find the remote,
I canít find my glasses,
And I donít remember what I did
with the car keys.
Then, when I try to figure out why
nothing got done today,
Iím really baffled because I know I was busy all day,
And Iím really tired.

I realize this is a serious problem,
And Iíll try to get some help for it, but
first Iíll check my e-mailÖ

Do me a favor.
Forward this message to everyone you know,
Because I donít remember who Iíve sent it to.

Donít laugh ó if this isnít you yet,
your day is coming!

Öand tomorrow morning you discover that the hose is still running.
