Reasons To Be Cheerful #46: Tuesdays

16 Jul

RUBY TUESDAY SIGN, Ruby Tuesday Casual Restaurant Thomas County Thomasville GA.

Apparently, Tuesday is named for a one-handed god who was stupid enough to put his hand (the lost one) into the jaws of a beast. This guy was named Tiw and he didn’t get that much recognition compared to his peers, but then maybe that’s what you get for being a bit of a moron. The point is, every day has reasons to be cheerful and I needed a prelude and that was it. So here goes:

1. It’s Not Monday

This is the big one. Mondays, when you are a 9 to 5 worker, are without doubt, the worst day of the week. Known as Morgue Mondays in my revered orifice, they have been scientifically proven to last longer than other days and to induce 50% more toilet cries. So when you crawl into work on Tiw’s Day, life is immediately much improved. Much like waking up the day after a horrendous hangover (unless the hangover was on Sunday, in which case it carries over to Monday).

2. Great Baby Name Potential

This one is for my celebrity readers (there are many) who will well know that place names (Brooklyn), colours (Blue Ivy) and fruits (Apple) are just so 2008-2012. Weekday names however – inspired. Tuesday Kardashian would have been sheer brilliance.

3. Insult Potential

Not many days of the week can be used to scorn foes with absolute vehemence, but Tuesday, well Tuesday has the power. If you don’t know what I’m talking about then I’ll just say that it’s best if I C U Next Tuesday.

4. Pancake Day

While it can be easy for the less pious of us to forget about Christ’s sacrifices, the reason for the cross in hotcross buns, all the lessons about abstinence, and SO ON; pancake day is actually Shrove TUESDAY. It comes from shrive which means to confess. And it’s just before Lent, when we learn to feel the pain of the third world as we give up chocolate or bread for a couple of days. But, most importantly of all, we get to eat lots of pancakes and then Instagram our fun times. Thankyou Tuesday!

Thankyou Jesus

Thankyou Jesus
