Thank goodness Friday puts you closer to Monday

I chatted casually with a stranger recently as we walked to her place of work. She was friendly and cheerful, and seemed happy to be going to work. So I made some silly comment about her mood, to which she replied, “It’s Friday!”

This came as a surprise. She seemed so pleased to be at work. And so I suggested that it is not always a good idea to admit to a stranger that you are excited about a day because it is a one step removed from your weekend away from work. She was quiet for a moment and I thought I had offended her. Then she said, “But I like Friday because it puts me closer to Monday.”

Wow! What a cleaver comeback! Or was she being serious? I think she was. Her attitude made that clear.

Tell me, when was the last time you wanted to be closer to Monday?
