Day of the Day

Today’s day of the day is Tuesday.

Tuesday has always had a strange fascination with me; coming, as it does, immediately after Monday, one can still feel the throes of monday-ness still clinging to it, as we are dragged headlong into Wednesday. It thus fills an awkward gap, and prevents our having to adjust our calenders by 52 days every new year.

In some respects, Tuesday is very Thursday-esque, in that it is not Friday enough to be convincingly relaxing and Sunday-like. However, its close-to-central position within the week can only be seen as a contributary factor in its success.
