My Favorite Days of the Week

Updated on February 15, 2012

Monday may be the most disliked day, but not for me.

My Favorite Days of the Week, and Why.

I suspect that most of us have their favorite days of the week and could put them in order after a bit of thought.

Worker bees of the 9 to 5 persuasion might follow the TGIF philosophy and name Friday as their number one. Those who are retired, have no regular work days and hours might have any number of preferences, but Friday won’t have the same significance for them.

The people with whom God - or gods - plays a leading role in their lives, may immediately say Sunday; the more old-fashioned warmed by the pleasure of Sunday best and seeing many old friends in church.

Sports fans are surely going to shout as one “Saturday, mate!” Either the day they are going to play sports; visit a sporting venue or gather a plethora of snacks and some cold beers and gather round the Tele, well upsetting the Essex harridan.

I wonder how many will opt for “Bloody Monday?” It won’t be top of the list, that’s for sure, too many wage-slaves will be groaning after hectic weekends and shrugging off excesses of food and drink.

And why would some say Tuesday - Wednesday - Thursday??

I know the British PM, David Cameron, groans at the thought of live PM’s Questions on BBC and SKY, prompt at midday on most Wednesdays: he will think glumly of the god, Woden, as the Leader of the Opposition, Ed Millipede nails him in the dispatch box, (or some other convenient body part). Plus, Wednesday is the midweek milestone, so it might be favored by the hordes praying for payday (TGIF!!).

But Tuesday…Thursday?? Sort of insipid, aren’t they, although all of the above suggests Thursday might win out by the voters.

This puts poor old Tuesday last…it’s hard to think of something it does uniquely, isn’t it? Well, I suppose it is the day when things settle down after the weekend: all the tardy workers show up sans hangovers and after a good night’s sleep. It is said to be the best day to travel by air as it is the least congested. There is one Tuesday - Shrove Tuesday - which I believe might garner a bit of interest from those hoping to reserve a place somewhere else one day.

Well, I am sure I’ve missed some significant recommendations for one day or another which you will remind me of, whoops, of which you will remind me - in the comments.

If anyone cares, my own favorite days in descending order with a brief explanation, are as follows:-

(1) Thursday. Best day to pick up lonely girls in bars. Weekends are no good, they come out in pairs or group handed, ready to demolish any hopeful blokes, or piss off after the gin money runs out. But the fair sex gets antsy by Thursday, especially when no one has phoned ‘em for a Saturday night date by then

(2) Monday. Thank frack the bloody boring weekend is over! TV is lousy in Britain - all reruns; half the shops are closed and I can’t use my geezer’s bus pass when there are no buses. Also, hope for the future (Ha!) gains a bit of momentum on Monday and you even catch the old sheepish grin from the Brits not having to work.

(3) Sunday. Not because of church, I haven’t been to a service since about 1950 when I was the choir soloist and fell asleep just before it was my time to sing. Well, don’t you think a just Almighty would have given me a prod!? No, there’s usually the best TV sports program on Sunday..and I get my pension online at midnight! And then there’s roast dinners if I can be bothered to cook one.

(4) Friday. Fish and Chips in the UK! (And in 3000 Howard Johnson’s motels all over the USA!). Also it was until recently the day my sex slave came around, ah, me, maybe I’ll have to rethink the day.

Three more bloody days? Lemme think a minute.

(5) Wednesday I suppose. PM’s questions are one (Hell, do I need to get a life!)…and I enjoy Cameron getting a lambasting and returning in good measure. He’s a very good speaker and poor old Milliband is usually left with a shriek on his face. I might have rated it higher, but it is the only day my favorite soap, “Eastenders” is not screened…how does one get lives these days!?

Two left facing the bottom spot.

(6) Tuesday. Yes, the bland day has beaten Saturday by a nose. This is not so much that I like nondescript Tuesday, but that I really hate Saturdays in nothing-to-do- Britain, especially with about 6 hours of daylight and snow on the ground all day in winter.

(7) Saturday. Many will love you, so I don’t mind relegating you here. If only 99% of TV wasn’t TV reruns that weren’t worth a zit in the first place! How many repeats of Top Gear on Dave does it take to drive you completely bonkers? Why did I stop drinking? I can’t even go to the pub (Have you tried drinking pints of diet coke for 5 bucks a glass while all around you are rolling in the aisles and pissing bitter?…once was enough).

Oh, well, doesn’t matter what day it is, I’ve got the budgies…and I wish they’d shut the frack up!

You can’t even use a good oath in an article now, because the Porn Kings (Google) will pull the ads.

Joke innit!

      My favorite day is dependent upon what's going on in my life at the time. Used to like Mondays. Good things always happened on Mondays, but now they're pretty humdrum ordinary. Hated Fridays because if there was to be an unpleasant happening, it did so on Friday. Mondays are always too busy, so one can never get through to customer service. Later in the week is better. Difficult to accomplish anything on Friday as professionals have lengthened their weekends to include Friday in many cases, plus everything on that day and the whole weekend is crowded. I hate crowds and long lines.

      Since my life is just now undergoing a major change, I'll have to wait a couple of weeks to decide which day is my favorite.

      Interesting hub Sir Roberto. Something for people with long boring weekends to think about. I'm never bored. Must be nice to have time for boredom . . .

      Since I "retired" (ha!)I find the next day is my favourite day (and to my many Minimalist AH-mercan friends, the "u" is s'posed to be there in the deepfreeze North of you), 'cause there are no imperatives any more. I can party anytime I want, get up or not, go and do or stay and loaf. As long as my wife authorizes it, I can do what I please when I please. Ah! the good life. . . .!

      And what in hell is a "level 1 commenter", which I'm now dubbed??

      "Three more bloody days? Let me think a minute." Priceless, I laughed out loud when I read that. The comment for the rest of the week W T F, I have seen posted on Facebook, pretty funny stuff. Enjoyed this article tremendously, got me working on my Give Mondays Some Color. Thanks!

      Hahahaha...I used to care what day of the week it was but now they are all the same for me personally. I guess I could say I like Fridays because it is the only night my husband doesn't work. And I do like the weekends with the kids home.

      When I worked the desk job - I hated bloody Monday's and Wednesday - also known as hump day:) Ew!

      Funny one Bob:)

      As I was saying... we could do some serious drinking without the amateurs getting in the way.

      After 8 years of tending and managing bars, TGIF just didn't do it for me.

      BTW, very impressive...Rumplestiltzkin merely spun straw into gold, you started with nothing and created a very fine hub!

      Mondays and Tuesdays were the weekends for bartenders and restaurant workers...they were the slow nights for customers and were the nights the staff usually had off. It was good to go out and socialize with peers without the am

      Nice hub! Any day of the week I can sleep in, read, watch favorite movies and just do what I please, not having to be anywhere in particular, is good for me. Nice read! voted up.

      Great going Bob. Being retired my favorite day of the week is any day I get out of bed! Do you need to get out of Britain to get away from the dark? You've really done a great job and as always are amusing from start to finish. Voted up and funny.

      Dusty. I am a desert lover, too, after my years in Baja. I am happy around cactus; supreme life forms. Arizona is magnificent.

      Hound cat. Funny how a few shots and the karaoke machine turns us into Pavarotti or Whitney, isn't it!

      Moonfroth. Lewis Caroll is turning over in the grave.

      I'll look out for that book

      Thanks all

      Fracked! Fracked! I was fracking a ziggledof once but a wonkdok hauled my ziggledof away and fracked it under a yoikdiddwhiz. That was one of the worse days of my life, Diogenes! (with apologies to Paul Roberts’ PATTERNS OF ENGLISH, circa 1954). Wonderful book. You’d love it! Still available on Amazon, I think .

      Thursday is definitely my favorite day. "Karaoke Day!" My singing aptitude is pretty amateur, but I get a real kick belting out my terrible tunes on the karaoke machine. My scores have gone for quite a rise ever since I found my glasses. Wow, I can read the lyrics now.

      Bob, this should mark the end of any reason to leave the state of Arizona, I'm hoping that fishing and camping is all I leave the area of my home for from now on,

      Jools. TGIF is pretty general with 5 day week workers.

      Sunnie. If you see a large gent chasing you in your PJ's speed up a bit, he can't run to fast.

      Sophie. Thanks for the warm reply.

      Dusty. I went to Mexico once with a tiny trailer and a Newfoundland in it. With just that one wet bear-like fella, the traier seemed all dog. I can imagine how it was with all the Rotties. I hope you found good homes for the,. They need plenty of sure have a full life..

      Hi Bob, I jammed away from home, staying in my 4 wheel drive tow trailer with my two Rottweilers and Fiest and to make matters worse I've two male Rottys that I've been trying to give away with me as well. The queen size bed just isn't big enough and the ventilation is not strong enough to clear the air of the dog farts that are flying about. I came here because my old Auntie died, and no one else showed, I called my little brother for some help getting things in order and told him if he sees it and wants it, take it. So indeed he helped, helped himself to a pick up load and a 16 ft trailer load and left. After Sunday evening services I made the same offer to the congregation of 13 people and on Monday they helped themselves to all that didn't have blue tape on it and the blue tape was for the soup kitchen and 2nd hand store So by dark Monday the place was empty. Tuesday it rained, today Wednesday It might rain but I'm going to go into the gulf and drop two urns of ashes, husband and wife overboard to sink into 500 feet of ocean and probably show up on a beach as a tar ball in a few weeks, Ha! My favorite day will be get the heck out of here day and I'll let you know what day that was. I'll return to my life of days with no names, it doesn't seem to matter there, I look at the sun and shadows to know when it's time to head home or be caught in the dark. My favorite day was payday, and now it seems that is no longer an issue as my military pittance was joined with my social security and after being used to having no financial problems due to not having finances I can throw caution to the wind as I've now reached the upper crust of the poverty level being able to gas up my boat and go fishing! Whoopee!

      I thank you for a fun article to read and ponder, if I reach any major break throughs, or it it threws? or neither? I'll definitely let you know,
