If you’re a WordPress user, you might have noticed that Monday is the first day of the week by default. I’ve often wondered about that because in grade school teachers were always very specific that the week starts with Sunday. The calendar says the same thing too.
For Speedy, however, Monday is the first day of the week. He and Alex were having an argument last night about it. Speedy took the bag of potato chips from Alex and refused to give her any unless she conceded that Monday was indeed the first day of the week. Alex insisted it was Sunday and had to watch as the potato chips got fewer and fewer. She conceded just to get the bag of potato chips back.
Then Speedy decided to explain to Alex what each day of the week means. The explanation went like this:
Monday – the day when you start making MONey.
Tuesday – the day you get to CHOOSE (rhymes with “Tues”, get it?) whether to work or not because you already worked hard on Monday.
Wednesday – the day people get married (WEDdingDAY, okay?).
Thursday – just an ordinary day (apparently, he ran out of wise ideas).
Friday – the day you enjoy FRIED chicken, FRIED fish and all things FRIED.
Saturday – you SAT around all day because you still feel too full from all the FRIED things you ate on FRIDay.
Sunday – the day to be lazy when you just lie in the SUN and take it easy.
Alex realized it was useless getting the bag of potato chips back because she couldn’t eat while laughing hysterically. The only thing she got out of the whole thing was an aching jaw.
Me? I almost spilled my coffee while listening to Speedy’s speech about the days of the week. My husband is such a genius. :)
