Because it is Wednesday and rather than give you a Wordless Wednesday I give you the following funny of the day :). Today's funny was provided by my SIL from NY, she has 3 little boys and she is due any day with her first little girl.
The story resembles my every day life in so many levels it is unnerving! Enjoy :)
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 my 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
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 back in the bathroom, but first I'm going to water
the flowers. I set the wipes back down, fill a container with
water and suddenly I spot the TV remote, one of the kids left it on the
kitchen table. I realize that when they go to watch TV, I will be
looking for the remote as they fight over who lost it, but I won't
remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in
the den where it 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, 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 remote, 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.
