  1. I have A.A.A.D.D.

    Do you have A.A.A.D.D?

    They have finally found a diagnosis for my condition. Hooray!! I have recently been diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D. - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder...

    This is how it goes:
    I decide to wash the car; I start toward the garage and notice the mail on the table.

    Ok, I'm going to wash the car. But first I'm going to go through the mail. I lay the car keys down on the desk, discard the junk mail and I notice the trash can is full.

    Ok, I'll just put the bills on my desk and take the trash can out, but since I'm going to be near the mailbox anyway, I'll pay these few bills first.

    Now, where is my checkbook? Oops, there's only one check left. My extra checks are in my desk.

    Oh, there's the coke I was drinking. I'm going to look for those checks.

    But first I need to put my coke further away from the computer, or maybe I'll pop it into the fridge to keep it cold for a while.

    I head towards the kitchen and my flowers catch my eye, they need some water. I set the coke on the counter and uh oh! There are my glasses. I was looking for them all morning! I'd better put them away first.

    I fill a container with water and head for the flower pots - - Aaaaaagh! Someone left the TV remote in the kitchen. We will never think to look in the kitchen tonight when we want to watch television so I'd better put it back in the family room where it belongs.

    I splash some water into the pots and onto the floor, I throw the remote onto a soft cushion on the sofa and I head back down the hall trying to figure out what it was I was going to do?

    End of Day: The car isn't washed, the bills are unpaid, the coke is sitting on the kitchen counter, the flowers are half watered, the checkbook still only has one check in it and I can't seem to find my car keys!

    When I try to figure out how come nothing got done today, I'm baffled because I KNOW I WAS BUSY ALL DAY LONG!!! I realize this is a serious
    condition and I'll get help, BUT FIRST I think I'll check my e-mail...

    (sigh...)

    Theres another possibility,

    I was gonna clean my room until I got high
    I gonna get up and find the broom but then I got high
    my room is still messed up and I know why
    - cause I got high [repeat 3X]

    I messed up my entire life because I got high
    I lost my kids and wife because I got high

    - cause I got high [repeat 3X]:(

    bimp, that sounds suspiciously like one of my typical days!:D
     
  9. A.A.A.D.D., that expains a lot. I've learned a lesson here, never go to wash the car.
     
  10. Come on, Bimp. You're too young to be forgetting stuff. I've got eleven years on you and I can remember everything I've forgotten.

    :rolleyes:

    Man, I have A.A.A.D.D and I'm 20! :eek:
     
  12. I'm young and like that; does that mean I just have A.D.D.?

    Can I get some more A's from somewhere?

  16. Have I told you about my condition?
     
  17. You don't have A.A.A.D.D., you have kids. They mess you up.

    I have dual 1.5 year olds, a boy and a girl. I love em more than anything but they do destroy your ability to pay attention for more than three seconds at a time. :D :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:
