Therapist: So, what’s the problem today?
Me: What do you mean ‘today’?
Therapist: Okay, what’s your problem?
Me: I don’t like the sound of that either. Your problem? Meaning only I have this problem?
Therapist: Okay, what’s on your mind?
Me: Lots of things. That’s the problem. I have attention deficit.
Therapist: I noticed you left off the ‘disorder’ label.
Me: Did you notice your clock isn’t accurate?
Therapist: I’ll fix it.
Me: I can do it.
Therapist: No need.
Me: So where were we?
Therapist: That’s my question to ask.
Me: If you’d let me fix your clock, I’ll let you ask the question.
Therapist: Based on your fixation on the clock, it seems your attention deficit is cured.
Me: Heeyyyy! You’re pretty good. I think I’ll blog about this. Do you mind if I tweet about it as well? Do you have a Twitter handle? What about a Facebook site? You really should have one. I even have a great graphic you should use for an icon. But I still have to fix that clock. Can I just interview you for a podcast? I’m sure other people have attention deficit like I used to have. I should probably write an ebook about my cure…you know, that enduring saga toward recovery. Yeah, I’ll get back to you.
