A 10-year-old-boy wakes up on a saturday.
It is snowing heavily.
He: Sob, wasting a snow day on a saturday.

Is the meaning of "A" "1" , "2", or anything?
A: wasting a snow day on a saturday
1. We are wasting a snow day on a saturday.
2: We are unfortunate wasting a snow day on a saturday.

There is very little difference in meaning. What the lad means is that if the snow had fallen on a weekday he might not have had to go to school.

"unfortunate" is incorrect. You should use unfortunately.

OD, there is no need to post a quote on this. You could simply point out yourself that days of the week begin with a capital letter.

A further question on this subject:

A 10-year-old-boy wakes up on a Saturday.

It is snowing heavily.
He: Sob, wasting a snow day on a Saturday.

I would like to know which is omitted in front of "wasting".
1. I'm
wasting a snow day on a Saturday.
2. I hate
wasting a snow day on a Saturday.
3. Anything else
