They complain about having a “case of the Mondays.” Wednesday comes with the burden of getting over the humpday. By Friday, everyone seems to be just thanking unseen forces for gracing us with the fortitude to survive another five days before retreating to our respective escapes on the weekend. #ThankOprahItsFriday.
