I’m developing a theme. Tuesday must follow Monday, or what would become of Wednesday? The joy of arriving at mid-week would be considerably lessened if the week were shortened by a day.
Monday has been characterized as traumatic, due to the loss of the weekend (I love the way Hugh Grant pronounces the accent on the second syllable in that movie he did with Julia Roberts). Why do we stress the first syllable, anyway? It makes the end of the week sound weak.
So how to characterize the typical Tuesday? Tuesday’s chid is supposedly full of grace. Is that because he or she has recovered from Monday? Wednesday is near at hand, to give the disheartened hope that there will be an end to the traditional work week, even if it is only two days of recovery time before we do it all again.
It takes some dedication to embrace a Tuesday. A commitment to the week is necessary. Once Tuesday has begun, there is no turning back. A course has been set and the responsible individual must see it through to its conclusion. On to Wednesday!
