"Thank goodness it's Friday, amirite???" The often overly enthusiastic Crafty guy is beaming at the thought.
Honestly, I'm a little taken aback by his comment and a little confused. Is today really Friday? Huh. I guess it is. Partial unemployment has this way of making you lose track of the days.
After I snap out of running a mental calendar through my head, I offer him a meek smile, sad I can't share this enthusiasm of having the next two days off. The life of a day player, especially during the slow times, often means that I have the next day off... And usually, the day after that. So I just shrug and say, "Yeah, I guess so. But I'm a day player. Every day is like a Friday for me."
"Damn!" the Crafty guy says, still beaming. "Aren't you lucky?? I wish I had that going on. Every day is a Friday for you! How awesome is that??"
I smile, but then a thought crosses my mind. "Yeah... But at the same time, every day is also like a Monday."
"Oh...," says Crafty guy, as he walks back to his truck, "I do not like that. Touché."
