Monday, Part 2

Holidays falling on a Wednesday are bittersweet. On the one hand, you get the day off and I mean, hey, that's always welcome. And then you get the Tuesday before it, which becomes almost like a Friday-came-early.

But the problem with having a Wednesday holiday is that your Thursday afterwards -- which used to be like a precursor to the much-appreciated Friday -- now has the heavy shadow of being your second Monday of the week. I mean, two Mondays in the same week? That just plain sucks.

Though I suppose in the end, its graveness is slightly lightened by the thought that the very next day -- which was so close to being the second Tuesday of the week -- is actually a real bonafide Friday. And hell, that's a pretty damned nice feeling.

After all, I can't tell you how many of my Mondays through Thursdays are kept bearable just by the thought of the approaching Fridays.
