This is so funny...and so me!

Wow, it's been three months since i posted anything on here! Sorry about that. Been having sort of a rough go of it lately...but this made me laugh so hard I had to post it!


> 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:
> 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 check book off the table, and see that there 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 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 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
> 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
> 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

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


  1. shoots, i was looking for your link and got distracted by Josephine put food in her food dish and started back to the bedroom to finish making up the bed and saw the duster on the table and went about dusting every thing in the house went to add coffee to my cold coffee and...what was i doin...HELP!

  2. Delightful! And it's splendid to see you back. Hope all is well with you and your son! Apparently, you have seen a) my desk at work and b) my desk in my study, not to mention the rest of my house.

  3. This is so me! As I was reading it I started to think you've been watching me! Hahah! I know it's not my fault. I have a real disorder that I can blame! LMAO!!

  4. Amerah - Thanks for the link and for the laugh! I needed it and it hit right on the mark. You should have seen me in the grocery store the other day! It was so bad I went to the clinic the next day and begged for the straterra...course I couldn't afford to get it filled but that's another story for another day :)

    Carolyn :) Thanks...still don't know if it will be regular but I have missed the regimen of looking for links and info to post.

    Le ... you know...I have been watching you...just not saying anything :) Did I ever say congrats on the marriage? If I didn't I apologize and congratulations! I'm so happy for you!

  5. AAADD sets in when, exactly? This scenario seems hauntingly familiar.
