There is no Tuesday


Let's be perfectly honest. Tuesday is not a real thing.

The days of the week are, of course, a contrivance born of our human desire for regularity and routine in this chaotic, unpredictable world.

In a larger context, the days of the week exist as a form of social control. We conform to the expectations of society on Monday through Friday so that we do what we actually want to on Saturday and Sunday. This seems a fair bargain because it's just what everybody does.



As far as this author is concerned (social commentary aside), Tuesday exists only so there is an evening every seven days devoted solely to riding bikes, eating tacos, and washing it all down with a tasty fermented beverage or two.



So, today is "Tuesday," if that's what you want to call it. Will you conform to the expectations of society? Or will you heed the call of FT3 and fulfill a higher purpose?

  1. BTW: I'm out. As I have a meeting to attend, I'll be conforming to the expectations of society instead. Ironic, isn't it?

    1. You can locate it with another I phone, that is if it still has battery life.

    2. There's a switch that enables it to send a ping right before the battery dies.........
