    Default Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder

    This is how it develops:
    I was off work today so I decide to water my garden.
    As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide my car needs washing.
    As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mailbox earlier.
    I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.
    I lay my 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, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the rubbish bin first.
    But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox, when I take out the rubbish bin anyway, I may as well pay the bills first. I take my checkbook off the table, and see that there is only 1 check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the sitting room, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had 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. I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should 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 to be watered.
    I set the Coke down on the counter, and I 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 I spot the TV remote Someone left it on the kitchen table. I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will 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 sitting room 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 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 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 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.
    Never confuse education with intelligence
