A friend of mine sent this to me today and I thought I would share. Is it funny because it’s true?
AAADD – KNOW THE SYMPTOMS…..PLEASE READ!
Recently, I was diagnosed with 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:
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
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
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, and 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
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
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
Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I’m really
baffled because I know I was busy all day, and I’m really tired.
