Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder
DO you have A.A.A.D.D?
They have finally found a diagnosis for my condition.
Hooray!! I have recently been diagnosed with
Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder...
This is how it goes: I decide to wash the car; I start
toward the garage and notice the mail on the table.
Okay, I'm going to wash the car. But first I'm going to
go through the mail.
I lay the car keys down on the desk, discard the junk
mail and I notice the trash can is full. Okay, I'll just

but since I'm going to be near the mailbox anyway,
I'll pay these few bills first.
Now, where is my checkbook? Oops, there's only one

Oh, there's the coke I was drinking. I'm going to look
for those checks. But first I need to put my coke
further away from the computer, oh maybe I'll pop it
into the fridge to keep it cold for a while.
I head towards the kitchen and my flowers catch my
eye, they need some water. I set the coke on the
counter and uh oh! There are my glasses. I was looking
for them all morning! I'd better put them away first.
I fill a container with water and head for the flower pots
- - Aaaaaagh! Someone left the TV remote in the kitchen.
We'll never think to look in the kitchen tonight when we
want to watch television so I'd better put it back in the
family room where it belongs.
I splash some water into the pots and onto the floor, I
throw the remote onto a soft cushion on the sofa and I
head back down the hall trying to figure out what it
was I was going to do?
End of Day: The car isn't washed, the bills are
unpaid, the coke is sitting on the kitchen counter,
the flowers are half watered, the checkbook still only
has one check in it and I can't seem to find my car
keys! When I try to figure out how come nothing got
done today, I'm baffled because I KNOW I WAS BUSY
ALL DAY LONG!!! I realize this is a serious condition and
I'll get help, BUT FIRST I think I'll check my
