Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D. - Age
Deficit Disorder. This is how it manifests:
I decided to wash my car. As I start toward the
garage, I notice that
there is mail on the hall table. I decide to go through
the mail before
I wash the car. I lay my car keys down on the table, put the
in the trashcan under the table, and notice that the trashcan is
So, I decide to put the bills back on the table
and take out the trash
first. But then I think, since I'm going to be near
the mailbox when I
take out the trash anyway, I may as well pay the bills
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 to my desk
where I find the bottle of soda that I had been
I'm going to look for my checks, but first I
need to push the soda
aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see
that the soda is
getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the
refrigerator to keep
As I head toward the kitchen with the soda, a
vase of flowers on the
counter catches my eye-they need to be watered. I set
the soda down on
the counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I've
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 I spot the TV remote.
Someone left it
on the kitchen table. I realize that tonight when we go to
watch TV, we
will be looking for the remote, but nobody will remember that
the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where
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 set the remote back down 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 bottle of soda sitting on the counter, the
aren't watered, there is still only one check in my checkbook, I
find the remote, I can't find my glasses, and I don't remember what
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.

At this point the
senator tried to repeat the name, but
