Absentminded Adult Attention Deficit Disorder:

 This is how it manifests itself:

 I decide to wash the car.

 As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is
 post on the hall table.

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

 I put 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
 postbox 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 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 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 worktop catches my eye--they need to be watered.

 I put the Coke down on the worktop , 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 worktop , fill a
 container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote.

 Someone left it on the kitchen table.

 I realise 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 lounge 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 put the remote back down on the table, get
some towels and wipe up the spill.

Then I go to 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 worktop , the
flowers aren't watered, 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.

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!

GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY.
GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL
LAUGHING AT YOURSELF IS THERAPEUTIC!
