This is how it manifests. Kind of scary actually...

I decide to water my garden. As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look
over at my car and decide it needs washing.

As I start toward the garage, I notice mail on the front verandah table that
I brought up from the letter box earlier, just after the mailman had been.

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I put my car keys on
the table, put the junk mail in the garbage bin beside the table, and notice
that the bin is full.

So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage
first.

But then I think, since I'm going to be near the post box when I take out
the garbage anyway (and the mailman picks up the mail at noon). I may as
well pay the bills first. So, I take my cheque book off the table, and see
that there is only 1 cheque left. 

My spare cheque book is in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to
my desk where I find the can of Coke I'd been drinking earlier this morning.

I know I going to look for my cheque book, but first I need to push the Coke
can aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. The Coke is warm, so I
decide to put it in the refrigerator to make it cold again. 

As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vas e of flowers on the dining
room table catches my eye -- they need water.

I put the Coke on the dining room table and 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 put more water in the flowers. 

I set the glasses back down on the table, go to the kitchen sink to get a
jug and fill it with water and suddenly spot the TV remote on the window
sill. Some-one left it there.

I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I'll be looking for the
remote, but I won't remember that it's on the window sill, so I decide to
put it back in the lounge room where it belongs, but first I'll water the
flowers. 

I pour some water in the jug, but spill some on the floor. So, I set the
remote back on the kitchen bench, 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 cheque's aren't written for the bills to be paid
- there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the dining room table
- the flowers don't have enough water,
- there is still only 1 cheque in my cheque book,
- I can't find the remote,
- I can't find my glasses,
- the garbage hasn't been taken out
- 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, and I'm really tired now. 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. Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day
is coming!!
