A warning to you all
as it seems most appropriate for
Members of the HG site. Not that I'm pointing fingers mark you!
The following sums up one of my days very nicely!!
I have recently been diagnosed with AAADD.... that's
Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder!! This is how it goes...
I decide to change the oil in the car, start to the
garage and notice the mail on the table. OK, I'm going
to work on the car .... BUT FIRST I'm going to go
through the mail. So, I lay the car keys down on the desk.
After discarding the junk mail, I notice the waste can
is full. OK, I'll just put the bills on the desk ....
BUT FIRST I'll take the trash out to the trash can, but
since I'm going to be near the mailbox, I'll address a
few bills .... yes, now where is the cheque book? Oops
.... there's only one cheque left.
Where did I put the extra cheques? Oh, there is my
empty cup from last night on the desk. I'm going to
look for those cheques...BUT FIRST I need to put the
cup back in the kitchen. I head for
the kitchen, look out the window, notice the flowers
need a drink of water, I put the cup on the counter
and here's my extra pair of glasses on the kitchen
counter. What are they doing here? I'll just put them
away .... BUT FIRST, I need to water those flowers. I
head for the door and .... Aaaagh!
Someone left the TV remote in the wrong spot. OK, I'll
put the remote away and water the flowers....BUT
FIRST, I need to find those cheques ....
BY THE END OF THE DAY: The oil in the car has not been
changed, the bills are still unpaid, the cup is still
in the sink, the cheque book still has only one cheque
left, I've LOST my car keys....and, when I try to
figure out how come nothing got done today, I'm
baffled because....I KNOW I WAS BUSY ALL DAY!!
I realize this condition is serious....I'd get
help....BUT FIRST I think I'll check my e-mail!
By the way, the doctor told me that this disease is
highly contagious and that it can be transmitted by
e-mail. So if you want to avoid AAADD, don't read this
e-mail. (I meant to put this warning at the beginning
of the message but I got distracted.... Sorry....!)
So own up whosomever you might be? Cos I'm darned sure
I'm not alone?
