A.A.A.D.D. (age associated attention deficit disorder…

THIS IS HOW IT STARTS…… (and for you young ‘uns……your time is coming)

I decide to water my garden.

As I turn on the hose in the driveway,

I look over at the car and decide it needs washing.

As I start toward the garage

I notice the mail on the front porch that I brought up earlier.

I decide to go through the mail

before I wash the car.

So 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 might 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 inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Pepsi

I had been drinking.

I’m going to look for my checks,

but first I need to push the Pepsi aside so that I don’t

accidently knock it over.

The Pepsi is getting warm.

I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi,

a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye.

They need water.

I put the Pepsi on the counter

and discover my reading glasses that I had 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 glases back down on the counter, fill a container with water,

and suddenly spot the TV remote that someone had left in the kitchen.

I realize that tonight when we go to watch tv,

I’ll be looking for the remote.

However, 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 pour some water in the flowers.

Quite a bit of it 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.


The car isn’t washed

The bills aren’t paid

There is a warm can of Pepsi sitting on the counter,

The flowers don’t have enough water,

There is still only 1 check in the 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.

When I try to figure out why nothing got done,

I’m really baffled.

I know I was busy all day

and I’m really tired.

I should get help for it


I’m going to check my e-mail…..

3 little ladies…

Three old ladies are sitting in a diner, chatting about various things. One lady says, “You know, I’m getting really forgetful. This morning, I was standing at the top of the stairs, and I couldn’t remember whether I had just come up or was about to go down.”

The second lady says, “You think that’s bad? The other day, I was sitting on the edge of my bed, and I couldn’t remember whether I was going to bed or had just woken up!”

The third lady smiles smugly. “Well, my memory’s just as good as it’s always been, knock wood.”

She raps the table. With a startled look on her face, she asks, “Who’s there?”
