Pros and cons of being a bachelor

With Mathilde travelling like a spinning top lately*, I have spent quite some time by myself in the past weeks. And considering the ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ of being a bachelor again...

(1) I can cook pasta every evening (but don’t get my weekly amount of veggies and vitamins)

(2) I can sleep diagonally in the bed (but don’t get my ‘good-morning kiss’ when I wake up)

(3) I am not forced to speak with anyone before 9 am (but need to wait until 6.30 pm if I want to speak with Mathilde)

(4) I can wander half-naked round our home without running the risk of being caught by the webcam while Mathilde is having a Skype-conference with her boss - or, worst, with her parents! (but in the end a bit of sound exhibitionism is not the end of the world!)

(5) I can switch the A/C off when I sleep (but need to turn it on and wait ten minutes sweating before the house cools down when I go back from work and nobody is home)

(6) I can go directly to the pool without spending two hours shopping before during the week-end (but being at the pool by myself is not that fun)

(7) I don’t run the risk of not finding ‘my’ apples in the fridge because 'someone else' ate them (but cannot blame anyone if I forget to buy them)

(8) I can let my goaty grow (but have nobody who purchases the ‘hair fall therapy shampoo’ for me)
