SNARKY RESPONSE: That's a lovely sentiment, Fortune Cookie Guru, but I ascribe to a different credo, as espoused by that wise woman, Maxine, and others:
Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming, "WOW! What a ride!
You will maintain good health and enjoy life.
You know, Mondays get a bad rap. We B&M (you can figure it out) about Mondays, but ANY Day that serves as the first day of the work week would get lambasted. If our work week began Tuesday or Thursday, we'd call it the dreaded T-Day or something.
Yeah, Wednesdays are fortunately positioned in the work week. That hump day mojo is pretty strong right now. Especially thanks to a certain insurance commercial.
It's pretty funny, but I bet even that ubiquitous ungulate would have a hard time selling Wednesday if it was the first day of the work week instead of the crest of the weekly slog.
Really, we should celebrate Monday's arrival. Yes, the drudge-trudge to Friday has begun, but the hardest part is now over. We're up. We've started, we've begun. We're on our way. WOOT!
Let's hear it for Monday. After all, there's only ONE a week! Think about THAT one, why don't ya!
