For those of us past 40 (or so)...

I have an early diagnoses of A.A.A.D.D.; Age Activated
Attention Deficit Disorder. I was very concerned, so
I did some research on the subject.

This is how it manifests itself:

You decide to water your garden.
As you turn on the hose in the driveway, you look over
at your car and decide your car needs washing.
As you start toward the garage, you notice that there
is mail on the porch table that you brought up from
the mail box earlier.
You decide to go through the mail before you wash the
car.
You lay your car keys down on the table, put the junk
mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice
that the can is full.
So, you decide to put the bills back on the table and
take out the garbage first.
But then you think, since you are going to be near the
mailbox when you take out the garbage anyway, you may
as well pay the bills first.
You take your check book off the table, and see that
there is only one check left.
Your extra checks are in your desk in the study, so
you go inside the house to your desk where you find
the can of Coke that you had been drinking.
You're going to look for your checks, but first you
need to push the Coke aside so that you don't
accidentally knock it over. You see that the Coke is
getting warm, and you decide you should put it in the
refrigerator to keep it cold.
As you head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase
of flowers on the counter catches your eye -- they
need to be watered.
You set the Coke down on the counter, and you discover
your reading glasses that you have been searching for
all morning.
You decide you better put them back on your desk, but
first you are going to water the flowers.
You set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a
container with water and suddenly you spot the TV
remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table.
You realize that tonight when you go to watch TV, you
will be looking for the remote, but you won't remember
that it's on the kitchen table, so you decide to put
it back in the den where it belongs, but first you
will water the flowers.
You pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of
it spills on the floor.
So, you set the remote back down on the table, get
some towels and wipe up the spill.
Then, you head down the hall trying to remember what
you were 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 don't have enough water,
There is still only one check in your check book,
You can't find the remote,
You can't find your glasses,
And you don't remember what you did with the car
keys.Then, when you try to figure out why nothing got
done today, you are really baffled because you know
you were busy all day long, and you are really tired.

You realize this is a serious problem, and you will
try to get some help for it, but first you will check
your e-mail.
