We’ve all heard the funny Monday jokes–currently my favorite goes something like this: Dear Monday, This relationship just isn’t working out. We don’t seem to be any good for each other. I think we should see other days of the week.
If Facebook statuses tell us anything, we can all relate to that Monday “doomed” kind of feeling. And usually when Tuesday comes we all breath a sigh of relief.
But what happens when Monday becomes a stalker?
No, it’s not my imagination, I’m pretty sure Monday is stalking me. Either that or innocent little Tuesday has taken a turn to the bad side.
For now, I’m calling today, two band-aid Tuesday. After a series of issues that ranged from couldn’t find a hairbrush anywhere to the big morning finale: lost a good portion of a finger while grating a block of cheese for my dear one’s lunch sandwich (um, yeah, he may eat at Wendy’s today…), I have concluded that Monday has decided to break free of its usual place in the order of things and stalk me through the week.
Now some might suggest it was simply that I was operating complex machinery (a cheese grater) without caffeine, something everyone knows could be an inherently dangerous activity. But that’s just blaming the victim here and playing right into Monday’s trap.
Nope, I’m telling you, Monday is loose. Watch your backs. Hide your calendars. And don’t say I didn’t warn you if the weekend doesn’t seem safe anymore.
Now surely I’m not the only victim here. Anyone else ever feel that Monday stalked you through the week? Come on and share. How else will we get the proof needed to put Monday firmly back in its place? Or maybe you just have a funny Monday quote to share?
