Life with ADD ADHD!
It was the same thing again, but different. This time it wasn’t about losing my glasses.
We were volunteering at the shelter; my job was to take care of the name tags. They gave me a little box of tags along with a black marker, and I was instructed at length about where to put them when I was done. Clearly they were important.
Things went OK, and I wasn’t very busy and I had just written a guy’s name on the tag for him and given him his sleeping bag and I thought I deserved a cookie (I’d been able to resist their call so far, but was standing too close to them). You see where this is going?
OK, I enjoyed the cookie, and it’s possible I even had another one, maybe, you think? and then it was time to go back to work, and, of course, I couldn’t find the box of tags.
I looked on the chair where I’d been sitting before. Nope. Then in the closet where the sleeping bags are. Nope. Then on the tables near the closet. And all over the floor. And back over where the cookies were. No tags.
I walked back to where the boss was, to admit I’d lost them and see if anyone had maybe turned them in?
That’s when I noticed that the Box with the Tags and the Black Ink Marker were in my right hand.
Of course, I’d never thought to look there.
Anyone know what I’m talking about?
You may have noticed that this isn’t a strategy, but I did make a strategy about losing my glasses – now I always look first on my face (not on the top of my head, no, I mean on my nose!).
