Some have a condition often found in folks of my age.
The scientific world is frantically searching for a cure.
This is an ailment many of us suffer from and may not as yet have been diagnosed.
However, now you may be able to discuss it with your loved ones and try to explain what
really happened to you all those times you tried so hard to accomplish something and
didn't. It's call it the "Butfirst Syndrome."
It's like when I decide to do the laundry - I start down the hall and notice the
newspaper on the table. Okay, I'm going to do the laundry - Butfirst I'm going to read the
newspaper. After that, I notice the mail on the table. Okay, I'll just put the newspaper
in the recycle stack, Butfirst I'll look through that pile of mail and see if there are
any bills to be paid. Now where's the checkbook? Oops! There's the empty glass from
yesterday on the coffee table. I'm going to look for that checkbook, Butfirst I need to
put the glass in the sink. I head for the kitchen, look out the window, notice my poor
flowers need a drink of water. I put the glass in the sink, and darn it, there's the
remote for the TV on the kitchen counter. What's it doing here? I'll just put it away,
Butfirst I need to water those plants. Head for door and Ack! I stepped on the dog. The
dog needs to be fed.Okay, I'll put that remote away and water the plants. Butfirst I need
to feed the dog.
At the end of day: Laundry is not done, Newspapers are still on the floor, Glass is
still in the sink, Bills are unpaid, Checkbook is still missing, The dog ate the remote
control. AND, when I try to figure out how come nothing got done all day, I'm baffled,
