Lesson number 12 on the point of a weekend. Pencils ready...
The point of a weekend is to spend more money on pet food than your own life-sustaining groceries.
The point of a weekend is to pay $14 a ticket to view a 3D movie (remake) with little 3D while they smash your childhood gorgon memories to bits. Poor Perseus.
The point of a weekend is to spend most of your tax refund on... wait for it... bills.
The point of a weekend is to help your father buy a printer that does not (I repeat does NOT) come with the necessary cables to actually hook it up. Said cable costs more than the printer.
The point of a weekend is to listen to said father speak on our proud heritage and be impressed that the fairly shy man can stand before a room and win it over. Every time.
The point of a weekend is to buy a round trip ticket from Philly to Fresno because... well, because I CAN!!!
The preceding is the incomplete list of one weekend's events. Do not attempt without proper safety gear.
