Why Is That?

Why is it when it's not a school-day, your children can quite happily get out of bed with the dawn chorus?
.
Why is it when I see a teenage boy with his jeans half-way round his backside showing the world his underwear I want to yell at him "pull your trousers up, I don't want to see your pants" even though every time I bend over in my jeans I reveal half-an-acre of my very own granny-pants?
.
Why is it you put 20 socks in the washing machine and only 7 come out at the end?
.
Why is it your kids only ever say swear words in front of your in-laws?
.
Why is it you only ever lose your keys when you're running really late?
.
Why is it there's never anything worth watching on TV when you've got a spare hour?
.
Why is it your kids know from another room the instant you sit down with a cup of tea?
.
Why is it when you've got gift vouchers to spend in your favourite shop you become precious about what to spend them on, even though when you have no money you could buy the entire shop?
.
Why is it I can lose anything in the blink of an eye in my workroom, yet I can't lose a pound off my weight?
.
Why is it the older you get, and the less energy you have, you have to wander from room to room thinking "what did I come in here for?"
.

.
PS - I'm British ... "Pants" = underwear (not trousers!)
