The Why of Weekends
100 words. Dream. This one woke me up.
“I think we’ll postpone the exam. Instead of Friday, we’ll have it Monday.”

“That way you’ll have the weekend to study.”
Contrary to what they may have believed, he didn’t love to spoil their weekends, be it having them study for an exam or write papers. He saw weekend study as a bonus, and the quicker they finished their assignments, perhaps the more they’d enjoy activities afterward.
He even felt the groans were a sign he was doing a good job. The more the groans, the more they were spurred to learn.
