My Duel with ADD
It all began one day when I realized I could not concentrate. Hmm... Recent Changes... I wanted so badly to dedicate myself to my work and my I'm kinda hungry... ...my... darn it, lost my train of thought. So yeah.
ADD! I hereby challenge thee to a duel! To the death!
ADD lunges for my throat yelling, "NINJAS!"
I grab his wrist and twist him over with a sharp, "I need to graduate!"
He grins at me. "Aren't you hungry?"
I parry his grin with a smirking, "I just ate."
Not to be defeated so quickly, he dances over to IRC, drawing my attention with him.
"NO!" I yell. I avert mine eyes out of reverence. "There's work to be done."
...Needless to say, I'm not perfect, and I falter for a bit. But enraged by this failing, I turn on him, a sword of determination raised.
"Fine," he says. And with that, ADD wipes my mind blank.
AAAEEEUUURRGGHHH!! I emerge from the stupor. "I need to do this! Leave me alone!"
"My, it's been quite some time since you checked Recent Changes, hasn't it?"
I hesitate. I want so bad just to look, but I need to beat him, crush him, destroy him.
And then, BAM! It hits me. He feeds off my attention.
I turn my back to him. "I don't care."
"I don't care."
"Fine." He skips gayly off.
I know he'll be back, but for now, I have won.
Crap! I still haven't done that work!
