10. Last time you did that, it just got messy again.

9. Yes, the weather is perfect for cleaning out the garage -- not too hot, not too cold -- but doesn't that mean it is also perfect for many other activities?

8. Wouldn't spending time in the garage interfere with your robust observance of the 31 Days of Oktoberfest?

7.There might be a football game on TV involving teams someone somewhere cares about.

6. You need that time to work on your marriage.

5. There might be mice.

4. If you go out there, the little boy from across the street is certain to come over and ask you a bunch of existential questions you cannot answer.

3. When you bought a house without a basement, you pretty much set the stage for having a garage that is out of control.

2. You always get bogged down trying to answer the question, "Should we toss this?"

1. Amnesia.
