1. There’s time to cook proper breakfast and enjoy it sitting down. With a bit of luck, even while reading the paper. Yes, the actual paper paper (as opposed to taking a quick glance at the headlines on Yahoo while logging into e-mail at desk).
2. On Friday night I can enjoy my glass of red without any remorse. Why the remorse, you say? Well, in Finland nobody drinks socially except on weekends (= having a glass on Monday means you’re a lush).
3. Maybe – just maybe – there’s a chance I’ll run into some nice people and actually get to be sociable for a change (= being sociable without telling them to hush up, take out their books and yarp at them for not doing their homework).
