My Conception


As I sat staring at my computer, contemplating what to write,

noting several “Must-Read Celebrity Stories!” on my home page

and tracking the labored progression of a particularly fat squirrel

up the ornamental beech tree outside my window,

while obsessing over something a friend said last week

that woke me up at three a.m. this morning

and is still bugging me

(why on earth would he say that?),

I thought,

Oh, I know, I’ll write about that time when,

before I was born,

my parents drove up to the Baby Order Window,

and said,

“We’ll have a boy, please,

heavy on the ADHD,

with a side of OCD,

and hold the self-discipline.”

    I can SOOOO relate.
    But you forgot the last part. The part that goes, “And the world rejoiced.”

    Blessings on the journey!

    I don’t have ADHD; I have AAADD–Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. It works pretty much the same way: numerous distractions clamoring for deliberation or action. Never a dull moment though! (Delightfully funny post, Mitch!)

  4. You are welcome to the great organization of the Illuminati. If you are a business man / woman, politician, musician, student, unemployed, disabled and want to be rich, powerful and famous in life, you will start receiving $ 45 billion per month … Illuminati is a secret society that blesses man and it gives man the desire of his dreams to become a millionaire and billionaire.

      So, are you ready to join us today and be rich in life? whatsap the great teacher now +233204540772 ….?


  5. No wonder I relate so much to your posts – I too am ADHD and OCD. (Everything has to be perfect, but only for a few minutes.)
    the great illuminati brotherhood? $45 billion??? Good grief, you have ADHD, not UGD. (Unlimited Gullibility Disorder)
