Pingpong in Purgatory
Scott Sullivan
Before science discovered (or invented) ADHD and drugs meant to treat (or hide) it, teachers called me hyper and drug me down to the office. The principal was a busy guy. Once he’d lectured me in a stern voice, I was sentenced to an empty conference room, which I snuck out of to convene with my fellow disciplined penitents to play ping-pong in purgatory, aka Greg Vest’s rec room.

“Bacon Wrapped Deep Dish is Back” the sign said. It was missing?

My ADHD disturbs me. I remember some things, like now they’re back I should buy tons of these $12 pizza-pizzas from Little Caesars so owner Mike Ilitch, who also owns the Detroit Tigers, can afford his team’s 20l6 payroll, recently augmented by Juston Upton’s 6-year, $132.75-million contract and Jordan Zimmerman’s 5-year, $110-million pact. Add Miguel Cabrera’s 8 years for $248 million, Justin Verlander’s 6 years for $162 million and you start to talk real money.

There are sports statistics, old song lyrics, TV commercial and more useless garbage I can’t dislodge from my head. But computer passwords, what my wife just told me and other info I might really need? Never registered.
