A Friday should be a beautiful thing. A Friday afternoon, in particular, holds such promise. On a Friday afternoon, you should be able to look over the horizon and feel like you have days and days to do with what you will. You can stay up late and not fear that upon waking, you’ll have to go to work. In short, Friday should just be joy.
You know what things don’t indicate a joyful Friday?
- You should not find out that your pilot project got rejected thus trapping you forever in a job that no longer rings your bell (Hell, I can’t find the bell. Was there a bell?)
- You should not then get an assignment at bell-less job that you should never have and only got because everyone else had the good sense to be on vacation and entirely unreachable.
- You should not then finally find a couple of minutes to check in with Facebook looking for solace only to be cruelly taunted by “People You Might Know” suggestions. Oh, and that suggestion shouldn’t be The EX, but what it really shouldn’t be is your Ex’s new wife using a profile photo where she is holding their new baby.
