It's the most irrelevant day of the week.


Aside from a few musical ditties paying homage, such as "Ruby Tuesday" by the Rolling Stones, "Tuesday Afternoon" by the Moody Blues and "Tuesday's Gone" by Lynyrd Skynyrd, there just isn't much there. 

Here, I'll show you what I mean:

Ever hear the expression, "negative attention is better than no attention at all"?  Well, that's Monday.  People "don't like" Mondays (The Boomtown Rats) and it's a "manic" kind of day (Thank you, Bangles).  The Mamas and Papas tell us you can't trust that day.  But, it's got a purpose (i.e. dragging your a$$ back to work, most likely).  And it gets lots of press.

Hello, Hump Day?  By now, you've worked two days and you have two days left to work.  It's the middle of the week and you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Wednesday's got some major street cred.  Plus "Criminal Minds" is on.  There you go. 

Have you ever been thirstier than on a Thursday???  This is the day that lots of folks get paid.  So, they go to their local watering hole and blow it all on copious amounts of booze.  Makes sense.  What else are you doing to do with your money?  Put it in your 401K???  Please.

Friday, I'm in love, Thank God it's Friday, Friday Night Lights and Black Friday.  Friday's got it going on.  It's my personal favorite day of the week.  I love the deliciousness of ANTICIPATION.  Waiting for the weekend has a certain excitement to it.  All the traffic in the world can't detract from the fun, frivolous nature of Friday.

Save hairdressers and retail employees, this is the first day you get to "sleep in".  You don't hear the repetitive boom of the alarm clock rousing you from your peaceful slumber.  You can stay in your pajamas as long as you want and watch cartoons all morning.  Or you can mow the lawn.  Personally, I'll take cartoons for $100, Alex.

Even God knows that Sunday is a big deal.  He RESTED.  Unless you are Catholic or Jewish (or agnostic), this might also be your church day.  Even retail stores open later than usual (at least they used to).  Some places won't even sell beer or wine.  Everything is different on Sunday.  Most runners do their long run on Sunday morning.  It's a pretty big deal.

What is the purpose of Tuesday?  Is it so we could have a seventh day of the week?  Aside from Election Day, do we really need it?

Well, whether we need it or not, it's here to stay.  So, we might as well enjoy it. 

How will YOU make Tuesday memorable?
