Why can’t every day be Friday? Well, every day can be Friday! It’s just a simple matter of renaming the days of the week…

Friday: This day will remain “Friday”. This, after all, is the point.

Thursday: We’ll call this day “Friday Lite”. Not quite Friday, but not so bad, really.

Wednesday: This’ll be “Friday Lite Eve”. Get ready to get ready for Friday!

Tuesday: From now on, this day will be “Fancy Tuesday”. A response to Casual Friday, this is the day we dress up fancy. Wear your top hat & tails! And by keeping one non-Friday day, we throw Friday into sharper relief, which helps us focus on what’s important.

Monday: “Bizarro Friday”.

Sunday: Pick one – “Football Friday”, “Jesus Friday”, or “Sleep Friday”, whatever floats your boat.

Saturday: “Friday Plus”. Just like Friday, only more so!

There you have it. Every day is Friday! TGIF!

$5 a Tan

July 9, 2005

A tanning salon in my neighbourhood has a large sign in the window that reads “$5 A TAN”. From the corner of my eye, it looks like “SATAN”. Why am I the only one who notices these things?

Depression is something I frown upon.

I pooh-pooh digested food.

Hockey players who body-check? I give them the cold shoulder.

I mock the speed of sound.

I look down on cleavage.
