Like many people with ADHD, Anna Walters struggles with executive functioning. Doing housework, maintaining personal hygiene and meeting deadlines at work are all a struggle due to her disability. However, after watching the 2007 Disney Pixar animated film “Ratatouille,” Walters has come up with a solution to her problems.
“Basically, I want to get ratatouilled. I need a little rat to sit on my head and make me do stuff. Like, he could make me take out the trash, do the dishes and send emails for work … all the stuff I struggle to do. Normally, due to my executive dysfunction, it’s hard for me to cook anything more complicated than microwave mac and cheese … but with a little rat chef on my head? I could start cooking gourmet meals! I could be so much more productive if I had a little rat controlling me,” said Walters in a very normal and not unhinged way.
When asked how she would go about training a rat to do this, Walters responded that “he would just know how” because “cooking is his passion.” Our reporters proceeded to smile, nod and back away slowly while Walters continued to rant about the benefits of rat-based home care.
