Weekends Past Present or Future

Give a short true statement about you and weekends. It can be about the present (= present habits with Present Simple), future (one particular weekend or a particular time of your life) or past (ditto), but leave out the grammar that would indicate which, e.g. “Watch cricket”. Your partner should guess whether the true sentence is past, present or future, and then try to make a true sentence about you, e.g. “You used to watch cricket at the weekend when you were a teenager”
