Why? (And word verification Wednesday)

Can anyone tell me why............

A room can stay in the same state of cluttered disarray with the mess not moving or changing at all for two whole weeks, yet when I get the room clean, it can't stay that way for longer than 2 hours?

I can't remember what someone told me 30 minutes ago, yet I can remember all of the lyrics to a song I heard on the radio 30 years ago?

The girl Scout cookie boxes aren't bigger?

It takes at least two months to lose 10 lbs, yet it only takes one pound of fudge and a weekend to gain it all back?

IT'S STILL SNOWING?????

There are 6 half full/half empty bottles of barbecue sauce in my refrigerator?

Nobody ever cleaned up that can of Dr. Pepper that exploded in the freezer?

Max always asks me to fix peas for dinner, and then NEVER EATS THEM?

I hate when things spill in the freezer, because they freeze right away and then I can't wipe them up. I had a freezer covered in frozen lemonade for years. Until we got a new fridge, in fact...
