Somewhere around the fourth episode we watched that day of HBO’s Game of Thrones, I turned to my boyfriend lying semi-unconsciously on the couch and asked, “What do most young people do on the weekends?”
He responded with a chuckle, hoping I wouldn’t continue to interrupt his nap, but I persisted. According to him we’re supposed to drink beer out of bottles instead of cans and watch a lot of sports and just relax when the weekends come around because, well, we’re adults and we can.
But as I continue to mull it over, I’m unsatisfied with the idea that the weekends should be an extravaganza of laziness and want to know, really, what are we supposed to do with our time?
