being bored very easily as well as being easily amused; anything will catch your attention, so you loose your train of thought, that and you have the attention span of a goldfish
classic Goldfish Syndrome:
hi i'm sam. do you like my bowl? oh look sea puff!
hi i'm sam do you like my bowl? oh look a sea puff!

The Elephant Goldfish Syndrome is a horrific syndrom that only affects women. The first typical symptom is short-term memory in terms of trips, nice gestures and presents from close relatives, especially the husband. The second symptom is the extremely long-term memory regarding moments when another person has either betrayed or let the women down, this will never be forgotten by the women.
I gave her a trip to NYC last week and now she tells me I never give her presents, I think she's affected by the Elephant Goldfish Syndrome.
