Got your attention, didn’t I? Ha! You just may recognize it once you read the definition. And, watch out! Apparently, it is contagious! My niece, Maxine Jr., decided to pass it up to me since I and others in the family have been infamous for passing unwanted issues down the line with her in the mainstream.
A friend asked me today via e-mail what was up with my continuous forgetting to do a certain event that is a requirement. I explained, sorry, but the Squirrel Syndrome takes over when I get distracted. Her reply was, “huh?” I could picture her scratching her head. So, I had to explain.
Do you have times when you are on track, doing exactly what you planned and needing to do? You think, “This is going to be a breeze.” Nope! Something throws you off track. Think of a squirrel coming out of nowhere and you yell, “SQUIRREL”! Yep, that is the Squirrel Syndrome. You are now off track, can’t remember squat about what you were doing and have no clue where that track went or how to get back to it.
Friend had never heard of it, but she said, too, knowing me that she totally believes it. Hey! What can I say?
Welcome to the Squirrel Syndrome Club. It has now been passed down to you!
Now, what was I doing again?
Ya Gotta Laugh!
