Woo Hoo I don’t have this yet!

Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.


  This is how his story goes:


  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 mail box 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

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 Coke that I had been

drinking.

 


  I’m going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the
Coke aside so that I don’t accidentally knock it over. I see that 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 t o 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 car isn’t washed,


  the bills aren’t paid,


  there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter,


  the flowers don’t have enough water,

  there is still only one 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

really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, 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 favour, will you? Forward this message to everyone you

know, because I don’t remember to whom it has been sent.


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

 

  GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY. GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL, LAUGHING AT

YOURSELF IS THERAPY!

This is my mother and my aunt. They are nuts, its quite scary sometimes! My aunt once hid all her good jewellry and proceeded to forget where she had put it. After some time she came to the conclusion that she had been robbed. YEARS later she was replacing her fridge, in the back of the freezer, nestling among the frozen peas and tubs of ice-cream was a plastic bag filled with a couple of grands worth of jewellry. the minute she saw it, her logic dawned on her - she had put her “ice” in her icebox.
Im only 22 too Maeg, not this bad yet but I suspect it is all ahead of me!

Back in middle school I played “Magic: The Gathering” for a little while.  I had some really good cards which I put in a special place so I’d never loose them or have them stolen.  I never saw them again.  Too bad, I could have sold them.
