Thursdays

Hey, it's Thursday - and that means...

it's Thursday.

Thursday is rapidly becoming one of my favorite days of the week (okay, there are seven so it's not that difficult). Because Thursday, even more than Friday, is a sign that the work week is rapidly coming to an end. There is a light at the end of the tunnel - and it's not an oncoming train.

It's not that the workload on a given Thursday is any less than any other day of the week, nor that traffic is any less congested or that people are somehow magically more "friendly". It's that the promise of the non-work days is tantalizingly before us.

From here, it's just a skip and hop through Iaido, then to bed, then to Friday - and then to the weekend!

I know there are folks that say "If you look forward to the weekend, you've got the wrong attitude about your job." Maybe that's true - but perhaps again, it's written by those who don't constantly feel the sense of being mis-employed, of enduring because that's what you do until something else comes up.

No matter - it's Thursday!
