A Thankful Countdown: Day 6

18 November, 2011 | | 1 Comment

I’ve decided to count down to Thinksgiving, and take a moment each day to think about things I’m thankful for. 

Number Six:  Fridays. 

Seriously, who hasn’t had more than one moment of TGIF – it’s been a really, really messed up week, and you’re just ready to relax for the weekend.  You could taste it waking up this morning, couldn’t you?  You were just as ready as the next guy for a decent beverage, and the next guy is Mel Gibson, isn’t it? 

Friday night is why god invented painkillers.  Sure, Saturday morning dawns with the consequence it has, but by Friday you’re ready to live this day like the next will never come.  Friday leads straight, sure as the day follows the night, to that which we’re all working for – the weekend.  Friday is a zipline to 48 hours of honey-do lists and soccer games, catching up on laundry, shopping, and remembering what your spouse looks like during the day.  But just as a bad day fishing beats a good day working, whatever your weekend plans are, they’re more exciting than going to your office on Monday or Tuesday morning, aren’t they?  (If you answered no with a straight face, you really need to get out more.)

Happy Friday to all, and to all, a good weekend!  How could I leave you, but with this:

    Right on. Most Fridays find me heading for the magic of our Thorne Bottom Chalet.
