AAADD, Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder

Down memory lane, with a few detours
Recently, I was diagnosed with AAADD, Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. This is how it manifests: I decide to wash my car. As I start toward the garage, I notice 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 junk mail in the trash can under the table and notice that it's full.

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 mail box when I take out the trash, I may as well pay the bills first. I take my checkbook off the table but there is only one check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go to my desk, where I left the can of Coke that I had been drinking.
I'm off to wash my car.

Hey, there are some bills here that need to be paid...
