Mutant A.D.D.

This morning I was having coffee with a friend of mine; and in the process of the conversation, I begin telling him a story that occured on Saturday night. He lets me tell the whole story... and then says back to me, "yeah... I remember you doing that." And it hit me - he was there and witnessed the story first hand. In fact, I had been sitting next to him for most of the evening.

So has this happened to anyone else? Has anyone else launched into a story they thought needed to be shared... only to realize that the person they are sharing it with was present for said story. This is beyond A.D.D.... this is truly Mutant A.D.D. (extra points for all who catch the "mutant" reference)

I thought this was called old age-my kids tell me I do this all the time:)

I'm amused that your friend let you proceed tell the whole story before mentioning that he was there...

Sorry Todd, I've never made a mistake like that. Maybe its early dementia

I do it all the time, but I don't think anyone has ever let me finish the story!

It's always fun to listen to a story that you were present for. Sometimes you get to see it from another's point of view. Or even better, you get to hear the embelishments (I always love Bailey's stories on the third or fourth go round-always better than the original).
