WendyJ Posted May 24, 2008 Report Share Posted May 24, 2008 I know some of you have already read this as I have but someone sent this to me today and I thought "What the heck we could all use a giggle once in awhile, right?" So if I put even a smile on one person's face today (which I hate to tell you means you can associate yourself with this) then my job here is done. I hope you enjoy this.Love and Big Hugs,Wendy Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D. -- Age Activated Attention DeficitDisorder.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 start toward the garage,I notice mail on the porch table thatI 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 inthe garbage can under the table, And notice thatthe can is full.So, I decide to put the bills backon the table and take out the garbage first.But then I think, Since I'm going to be nearthe 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 thatthere 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 findthe cup of coffee I'd been drinking.I'm going to look for my checks, but first I needto push the coffee aside so that I don't accidentallyknock 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 counter catches my eye--they need water.I put the coffee on the counter and discover my readingglasses that I've been searching for all morning.I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'mgoing to water the flowers.I set the glasses back down on the counter, Fill a containerwith water and suddenly spot the TV remote. Someone leftit on the kitchen table. I realize that tonight when we go towatch TV, I'll be looking for the remote, but I won't rememberthat it's on the kitchen table, So I decide to put it back inthe 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 onthe floor. So, I set the remote back on the table, Get some towelsand wipe up the spill.Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I wasplanning to do.At the end of the day:The car isn't washedThe bills aren't paidThere is a cold cup of coffee sitting on the counterThe 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 keys.Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm reallybaffled because I know I was busy all 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 favor. Forward this message to everyone you know,because I don't remember who I've sent it to.
