Reason #9 — You can only think of 6 items to include on your Top Ten List.
Reason #8 — You dislike making decisions.
Reason #7 – You are concerned that your spouse will make you balance the check book if she or he knows you can count to ten.
Reason #6 for not making a Top Ten List — You can’t think of anything that interests you enough to count and sort out ten of them.
Reason #5 – You really don’t want David Letterman to sue you.
Reason #4 — Nobody will read your Top Ten List anyway.
Reason #3 — If it’s not Number One, it’s not worth writing down.
Reason #2 — Every time you get your Top Ten List in order you have a strong compulsion to rearrange it.
