    Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.
    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 the can of Coke I'd been drinking.

    I'm going to look for my checks,
    But first I need to push the Coke aside
    So that I don't accidentally knock it over.

    The Coke is getting warm,
    and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

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

    I put the Coke on the counter and
    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 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 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,
    but 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.

    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 1 check in my check 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 darn day,
    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....

    Do me a favor.
    Forward this message to everyone you know,
    because I don't remember who the hell I've sent it to.

    [​IMG] I'm not that old but I still do the same thing at times. Some days I would let myself into my dorm room and loose my keys look all over for them and then see they are still on the outside of the door so the dead-bolt did me no good as someone could have just turned my key and reopened the door. Other times i go to water the horses and forget until 2 hours later that the water is still running. LOL Thanks for sharing this funning story.

    Oh I don't want to think about all the times I left the water running in the horse trough and come back to find that corner of the paddock a swimming pool. Good thing we have a deep well. Sometimes it's been HOURS and usually don't remember until something else needs water or there's no water pressure.
    And NewChick, my daughter is a Kimie too! Just with one M. [​IMG]
