Someone sent me this by is well worth a read and a laugh! Sorry it is so long.

Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder:- 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 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 cheque book off the table,

and see that there is only one cheque 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 coke I'd been drinking.

I'm going to look for my checks,

but first I need to push the coke aside

so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

The cola is getting warm,

and I decide to 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 water.

I put the cola 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 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 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

coke sitting on the counter

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 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 favour.

Forward this message to everyone you know,

because I don't remember who the hell I've sent it


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

Graham pointed out that the garden is now flooded! As I did not turn off the hose!

  • Hi Lolly2 I enjoyed your post. You seem to be a member of the same group I belong. I too potter from one thing to another and do stupid things. I think it is fun to entertain my family with details of what I've done and even laugh myself. Keep well. Joyce
