    I got this in an email .... and whilst I'm not quite at this stage ... I can identify with lots of it!!! Thought it might amuse a few of you! :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 my car needs washing.

    As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mailbox earlier.

    I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

    I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the rubbish bin under the table, and notice that the bin is full.

    So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the rubbish first.

    But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the rubbish 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 cheques are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking.

    I'm going to look for my cheques, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I realize the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should 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 to be watered.

    I set the Coke down on the counter, and I 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 I spot the TV remote someone left it on the kitchen table.

    I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will 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 down 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 driveway is flooded
    the car isn't washed,
    the bills aren't paid,

    the rubbish didn't get put out,
    there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter,
    there is still only one 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 day long, and I'm really tired.
