It is an election year and politicians will say just about anything to get a vote. Everyone is making promises about the economy, jobs, healthcare and technology but why is no one talking about the elephant in the room? Is the issue too hot for even the most desperate politician to touch? I am of course talking about the insanity of 4th of July falling on a Wednesday.
You Call This a Holiday???
Today is the 4th of July, but it is also Wednesday, which means this holiday sucks! Let’s see, I worked the day before the 4th, I’ll work the day after the 4th, hell I am working right now on the 4th. Again, I ask you, in who’s sick demented mind is that a holiday? It is our nation’s birthday, doesn’t that merit having at least the day before it off as well? What about the day after? Somehow find a way to bridge it to the weekend. Can’t we say our Nation had a long 72 hour labor, and therefore always celebrates with 72 hours of vacation time?
My Plan To End the Wednesday 4th of July Misery
Maybe politicians don’t want to talk about this issue because they don’t have a solution to the problem. Well, as a parent, I am nothing if not a problem solver, so I will now present my plan to forever end the possibility that the 4th of July will fall on a Wednesday…
Goodbye Wednesday, Hello SaturPlay
How do you guarantee that the 4th of July will never fall on Wednesday again? Eliminate all Wednesdays from the calendar! Look, let’s just tell it like it is, Wednesday has always been the worst day of the week. Quick, name anything positive that ever happens on a Wednesday? See what I mean. It’s a goat, a wash-up, a never was, a Friday want to be. It is time we let the albatross of the calendar go and cut our losses.
Radical you say? Really? Who is going to be against this plan? Last I checked, there is not a lot of Wednesday lobbyists in Washington. Fine, the calendar people and pesky astronomers might have an issue with losing 52 days in the year, but I have that covered with the addition of Saturplay to the calendar. Yep, right after Saturday we add in a day called Saturplay. One more day to play over the weekend, one less day during the week. Really, how totally awesome would it be to have 4th of July fall on Saturplay? This might finally be an issue that Republicans and Democrats can agree on.
Happy 4th of July, Even if it is Wednesday
While I sit here and wait for a robocall from a politician running on the Saturplay platform, I did want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy and safe 4th of July. Even though it is Wednesday, we truly wish you all have a wonderful day, eat plenty of BBQ and wake up in the morning with all 10 digits still on your hands.
