I Received the below message from a #Friend and found it #TooGoodNotToShare ..

What is A.A.A.D.D.?

It is Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

#ThankGod they now have a name for it ..

Read on more to learn about #AgeActivatedAttentionDeficitDisorder ..
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 my can of beer that I'd been drinking

I'm going to look for my checks,
but first I need to push the beer can aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over
The #Beer is getting warm & I decide to put it in the refrigerator

As I head toward the kitchen with the Beer,a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye-they need water

I put the Beer on the counter &
discover my reading glasses that
I've been searching since 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 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. After all, #Flowers can’t speak for themselves
I pour some water in the flowers but quite a bit spills on the floor

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 do only to realize that it’s late evening & I am exhausted
At the end of the day:

😀The car isn't washed

😀The #bills aren't paid

😀There’s a warm beer sitting on the counter

😀The #flowers don't have enough water

😀There’s there still only 1 check in my check book

😀I can't find the #remote

😀I can't find my #glasses

😀I don't remember what I did with the #CarKeys

Then,when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day & Am really tired

I realize this is a serious problem & Must get some help for it but first I'll check my e-mail
Please Do me a favor
Forward this message to everyone you know, because clearly I don't remember whether I've sent it to you before

Am sure you smiled whilst reading ..
Please share the smile with others
