I had an opposite reaction recently that I thought was worth mentioning.

Someone I have met a few times in a work capacity remarked that I always seem so organised so when she sees me doing things that are clearly ADD she is really surprised. Yet every time I’ve met her I’ve done something so completely ADD that her comment took me by surprise.

By that I include – breaking my pen and getting ink all over my blouse, leaving the blouse soaking in the hotel sink and going home without it, leaving my coat at another venue and going home without that, losing my paperwork, leaving my stuff in someone else’s car boot because I’d parked in the wrong place and had to walk a mile to get back to my car etc etc!

I think maybe what she’s seeing as ‘organised’ is me working very fast, dashing around with a serious look on my face (thinking, ‘where the hell am I supposed to be right now?’ probably!)

Whatever it is, I like it and I’m glad she sees me like that as it’s a refreshing first for me!
