Help....I have Butfirst Syndrome


Recommended Posts

I swear I do this at least once a day!


I 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


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, because I KNOW I was BUSY ALL DAY!

I realize this condition is serious....and I should get help,

BUTFIRST I think I'll read all my email
