    Unhappy How I killed another Day !!

    How I killed another Day !!

    Recently, I was diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D. - Age Activated Attention
    Deficit Disorder. This is how it manifests:

    I decide to wash my car. As I start toward the garage, I notice that
    there is mail on the hall table. 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 trash can under the table, and notice that the trash can is full.
    So,I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the trash

    But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take
    out the trash anyway, I may as well pay the bills first. I take my
    checkbook 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 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 to put it back in the den where it
    belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

    I splash some water on the flowers, but most 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 aren't
    watered, there is still only one check in my checkbook, 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.

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


    A laptop, internet connection and beer.

    Is that based on a true story

    LOL.... so many times have i set out to do a chore and found myself doing a hundred other chores before the first one got done. however, i usually get everything i set out to do done

    Lived by that one all my life hehe.... and im always the first to laugh at myself even at the worst times - i find that ive never been embarrased and i always act like an idiot (like dancing to music wherever... shops, work... things like that) because i just dont care what other ppl think...

    IMO, best way to live.. Nice post
