I try to have no preconceptions about any day of the week. Nevertheless, I can’t deny that Monday tends to be different from the following week days. “Ah, it’s Monday.” seems to be a frequent response to the question “How are you today?” in an office environment on a Monday.* Have you heard or said it today? The simple “Ah, it’s Monday” can express an array of states – dislike, boredom, or… enthusiasm. Yes, Monday can also be associated with enthusiasm, but more often than not it seems to have a negative connotation. This makes me feel sorry for the poor Monday, treated unfairly by so many people. My blog post probably won’t contribute much to improving its reputation, but it’s worth a try especially today when “Ah, it’s Monday” was the prevailing response and impression of my day. What makes Mondays different for you?
*Even though I try to avoid the cliché “Ah, it’s Monday”, I am also guilty of using it.
