This was forwarded to me by a friend. I laughed after I read it because it hit me hahaha. I thought of posting it here so you may know the other side of me. Read on...

If you have been secretly wondering what is wrong with
me, I now have the answer...

Recently, I was diagnosed with C. A. A. D. D. (Child
Activated Attention Deficit Disorder)

This is how it manifests:

I decide to do the laundry. As I start toward the
laundry room, I notice that there are cheerios all over
the floor and my car keys are in the cereal bowl.

I decide to pick up the cheerios before I do the
laundry. I lay m y car keys down on the counter, put
the cheerios in the trash can under the counter, and
notice that the trash can is full. So, I decide to
take out the trash.

But then I think, since I'm going to be near the
mailbox when I take out the trash I may as well pay
the bills first. 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 office/playroom, so I go
to my desk where I find a sippy cup full of juice. I'm
going to look for my checks, but first I decide I
should put the sippy cup in the refrigerator to keep
it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the sippy cup a vase
of flowers on the counter catches my eye - they need
to be watered. I set the sippy cup on the counter, and
I discover baby wipes that I've been searching for all
morning. I decide I better put them ba ck in the
bathroom, but first I'm going to water the flowers.

I set the wipes back down and splash some water on the
flowers, but most of it spills on the floor. So, I get
some paper 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 laundry isn't washed, the
bills aren't paid, there is a warm cup of juice
sitting on the counter, the flowers aren't watered,
there is still only one check in my checkbook, I can't
find the wipes, 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.

Do me a favor, will you? Forward this message, because
I don't remember to whom it has been sent.

Don't laugh - if this isn't you yet, your day is coming.
