According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, redeeming is an adjective meaning “serving to offset or compensate for a defect”.

Is it just me, or do Tuesday's have absolutely NO redeeming qualities?

Seriously, think about it.

Besides Fat Tuesday (March 8th this year) for the partiers, Super Tuesday for the political geeks (like me), and Patch Tuesday (the second Tuesday of every month where Microsoft releases patches for their products) for the computer nerds, there really isn’t anything outstanding about Tuesday’s.

Sure, new music is released on Tuesday’s; but with 99% of the drab coming out nowadays, I really don’t look forward to it (unless it involves a release from one of my favorite bands).

Let’s look at the other days of the week...

Sunday – NFL football.  NASCAR.  Sunday Funday.  Church.  Brunch.  Cook-outs in the summer.  ‘Nuff said.

Monday – NFL football…Trivia Night at Brian Boru in Severna Park…that’s about it…thankfully for 5 glorious months, there is football.  As I’ve mentioned before, after careful consideration, I’ve come to the conclusion that Monday’s suck.  But looking at it in a perspective of the glass being half-full, Monday has the redeeming quality of being a day for bitching and complaining about anything and everything...hey, it ain’t much, but it’s something!

Wednesday – Hump Day. Halfway to the weekend. You’re on the downside of the work week.

Thursday – Usually the unofficial start to the weekend…your local pub and grills surely have some kind of Happy Hour special, and probably some kind of special to draw folks in for the evening (a la Karaoke at Cheeseburger in Paradise in the ‘Dena, or Trivia Night at Hero’s in Annapolis, Thirsty Thursday’s at Bamboo Bernies, etc., etc.).

Friday – THE WORK WEEK ENDS AND THE WEEKEND OFFICIALLY BEGINS!  It’s 5 o’clock somewhere all day, every Friday!

Saturday – Weekend shenanigans.  College football.  College basketball.  Cookouts.  Trips to the beach.  Lunch out with the Littleheads.  Always something to get into and up to on Saturday.

Tuesday is the odd day out.

In college, we used Tuesday’s to give our livers a break and catch up on studying.

Now it’s the LONGEST day of the work week (for me at least).

Tuesday.  The Official Day With No Redeeming Qualities.

That’s all I got today.

Happy Tuesday, Beatdowners.

Until next time…
