This is Friday.
It’s Friday and we’ve had enough of all the formalities of the workweek. No tie and no handshake/fist bump is going to happen. What’s more, is that we don’t want to exert any more energy than is absolutely necessary. We are getting ever closer to 5 p.m. and any form of discomfort that will prevent us from sitting in the so-called “luxury suite” will simply have to be endured for the grand prize.
The luxury suite is called the luxury suite for a reason. It’s luxurious. So just try and curb your enthusiasm for the workweek’s luxury suite when it becomes available:
It’s pretty, pretty–you get it.
This is Thursday.
It’s Thursday and we’re ready to fully speak about the issues we feel most passionate about. We are taking a stand. Whether it’s something profound that will transform society like what Larry David’s TV persona is fighting for in the clip above, or I suppose something else, we need to speak up with clear intent and direction. The free-thinking dynamic encouraged by the pending weekend is rising within us today.
The line (so to speak) running parallel to our workweek persona must be expressed in order to counter and juxtapose utter craziness happening around us all.
This is Wednesday.
Once Wednesday arrives–the middle of the week–we are still trying to hang onto the many formalities associated with the beginning of the workweek. We abide by all the customs and “unwritten” rules of society associated with our individual lives. At the same time, Wednesday is the tipping point of when our minds wander towards the more relaxed, fun-natured anticipation of the pending weekend. Incredibly, we can all pinpoint this feeling, one way or another, relative to ourselves…
with the precision of a steak knife.
P.S. RIP Bob Einstein.
Fred Armisen’s reluctant Portlandia driving character = All of us this morning.
Carrie Brownstein’s insistent Portlandia driving character = Our Monday alarm that officially starts the workweek.
Random Thought: I wonder if the name of the guy driving the Yugo was Hugo?
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
P.S. In just a few short days, those tricky stop sign/right-of-way conundrums will be replaced by the open road of the weekend.
