AAADD- Know The Symptoms

AAADD- KNOW THE SYMPTOMS......

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

Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D. -

Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

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 postbox 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 b***dy 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 who the h**l I've sent it to.

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

Good grief! I'm a sufferer too! :wink
The last interglacial had less ice, higher sea levels, and warmer temperatures than this one. So, according to the evidence so far, human activity must have a COOLING effect.
