A fellow teacher recently mentioned his dislike for Tuesdays. I was surprised, since most people feel a great disdain for Mondays. His explanation was that he’d prepare himself mentally for the struggles of Monday; Tuesday would hit him with all its might and he never saw it coming.
We both agree that Wednesday isn’t so bad because the week is half-way over, Thursday is almost Friday, and Friday is practically the weekend. I couldn’t help but see his point about Tuesday. It lies in wait, ready to pounce unexpectedly at its first opportunity. I don’t drink coffee, so it can happen at any moment.
Well, I made it through this particular Tuesday virtually unscathed. Some minor bumps that aren’t worth mentioning here. But I appreciate his philosophy, and together we’re determined to support each other through our trials of the work week. Now we greet each other every morning with a “Happy [fill in the day of the week here]!” It instantly puts me in a better mood.
So now I’d like to do the same for you: I hope you had a Happy Tuesday!
