    The ADD thread

    It's when you have difficulty keeping your mind on one thing and for some being hyperactive.



    (and please, I really can't be bothered with the whole 'trying to create context for discussion' thing. I'm sure you can figure that out for yourselves)
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Today I had to deal with a guy who called about tents in his yard. Last year I took my kids camping and it was hell. I swear my mother is going to kill me if I don't get to church more often. My father rode his bike to my house last week. I bought my wife a bike for her birthday. My boss's birthday was last week. My boss answered the guys question about tents, because I was doing other stuff....

    I know I went to the garage to get something. Why am I here?

    Whenever I feel my ADD acting up I read stuff in the RTDNTOTO. It is like scratching an itch. Reading for 20 minutes buys me a good solid 5 minutes focus without any noise between my ears before I have to play something on my phone, walk around, or google band names I've thought up to see if someone's already called that. Incidentally "Hemlock" and "O Mighty Isis" are already taken. Jeez.
