Why Thursdays?

Therapy Thursday.  Is it just a clever play on words?  Yes.  Did Scott just make it up on the fly?  Yes.   And yet there is so much more to Thursdays for me.   Let’s just say that Thursdays have always been my favorite day of the week.

(Fun fact: Therapy Thursday is frequently used to advertise events at dance clubs and bars.  Apparently I’m not the only one who loves Thursdays.)

The reason I loved Thursdays as a kid was because each day had a specific feeling attached to it. Know what I mean?  Wednesday was hump day and often opposite day which was kind of fun.  (If you don’t know what I’m talking about then ask an 8 year old).  Mondays were boring and long and hard (nothing has changed).  Tuesday were ok.  I mean, whatever happens on a Tuesday?  But Thursday meant that it was almost the weekend.  It felt like an exciting twinge of hope that meant good stuff was just around the corner.  Plus Family Ties and the Cosby show were on Thursday nights. (If you don’t know what I mean by “on Thursday nights” ask someone older than 35.)

Just recently, I was reminded by a friend (of 30 long years), why she and I both still love Thursdays.  Apparently, and I had forgotten all about this, our elementary school only did field trips on Thursdays.  Of COURSE!  How could I forget?  But what is most interesting about my life long love of Thursdays is that the “going on a field trip” feeling remains and hits me every Thursday.  How weird is that?!

Any of you have a favorite day of the week and why?  (I would love to hear from someone who loves Mondays and has some cool childhood reason for that.)

Ready go!
