Just had to re-blog this post from ADDitude magazine written by Kelly Babcock! Click link after to read the whole thing:)
ADDvil: a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory sometimes used by hyperactive subtype ADHDers after overdoing everything.
ADDjunked: items purchased on impulse, or things bought to help ADHDers get organized, which end up in landfills.
ADDrift: the sensation ADHDers get when we feel that we’re missing something.
ADDagio: a graceful interaction between two ADHDers when they meet, typified by finishing each other’s statements, laughter, and high emotion.
ADDverse: having problems dealing with the non-ADD/ADHD world.
ADDmit: to confess to having ADD/ADHD, or to having done something impulsive.
ADDress: loud clothing — orange, purple, or chartreuse — worn by ADHDers.
ADDept: good at doing many things at once; multitasking.
ADDroitness: the special quality that many ADHDers have, which allows us to excel in an emergency, even though we may have caused the emergency.
ADDvance: when an ADHDer creates more piles of stuff. We ADDvance when we haven’t moved forward in our work, but feel we have because we’ve made more piles.
ADDventure: a new and exciting experience, usually pursued when we’re distracted by some boring, compulsory task that has a deadline.
And this one added by Suzz in the comment section:
ADDendum – the constant additions to thoughts, lists, or conversations that we interject into our every day lives, usually at improper, inoportune, or random moments, when that addition, which is totally relevant to us, makes absolutley no sense to our audience! Most often occurs at wee hours of the morning or on a different day from original conversation.
From one moment to the next all of these words apply to me ROLF
This is a dead dandelion that I killed using salt and boiling water.
I read it somewhere on the internet some time ago and it always stayed with me, in the back of my mind somewhere. (I apologize to that person because I can no longer find where I found this or remember anything about what site I was on. Otherwise I would happily and joyfully give credit where credit is due!)
This weekend the information popped to the front of my mind so I got the box of salt, regular table salt, and poured a little on the middle of the dandelion.
Then I boiled a pot of water.
When that was done, mere seconds later, I poured the pot of boiling water on the salted middle of the dandelion.
No more pesticides, no more boring “digging up the dandelions” sessions!
This trick appeals to the allergic to boring stuff side of my nature…it’s SO SO quick and E-Z…I love it:)
