This email was sent to me and I couldn't resist sharing it -

A.A.A.D.D. -  Age Activated Attention Deficit  Disorder.

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

This is how it manifests  itself:-

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 head towards  the garage,  I  notice post on the porch table that I picked up from the  postman earlier.

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

I put my car keys on the  table,  put  the junk mail in the recycling box under the  table,
and notice that the recycling  box is full.

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

But  then I think, since I'm going to be near the post box  when I take out the recycling paper anyway, I may as  well pay the bills first.

I take my cheque book  off the table  and  notice that there is only one cheque left.

My  extra cheques are in the desk in my study, so I go  into 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 worktop catches my eye - the flowers need  water.

I put the coffee on the worktop  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 put the  glasses back down on the worktop, fill a container with  water and suddenly spot the TV remote control. Someone  left it on the kitchen table.

I realise 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 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 put  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  kitchen work-surface

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 realise 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 can't remember whom the  hell I've sent it to.

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

So could that be the reason why the person I live with finds the milk in the cupboard when I was the one who used it last?

Along with everything I start to do then forget or not even remember that I need to do them until I get reminded or the chances of it getting done are unknown...lol!!! Me and my sieve brain.
