and on the seventh day…

Standard

if you’re like many of us who grew up in the 60s-70s

you’ll no doubt remember the popular ‘days of the week’ underwear sets

i loved the colors, the names,

the sense of knowing what day it was

without having to be burdened with a real calendar

yet i always wondered one thing about them –

why no ‘sunday’ pair?

what was the possible reason for this?

would god be mad if we wore underwear on sunday?

wouldn’t he be even madder if we didn’t?

i knew my catechism nuns wouldn’t have the answers.

i was left wondering.

 in the following scene from ‘when harry met sally’

sally explained the reason behind her latest breakup. great minds…..

HARRY: So how come you broke up with Sheldon?…SALLY: Well, if you must know, it’s because he was very jealous and I had these days of the week underpants.HARRY: [Makes buzzer sound]. I’m sorry. I need a judge’s ruling on this. Days of the week underpants?SALLY: Yes. They had the days of the week on them and I thought they were sort of funny. And then one day Sheldon says to me, “You never wear Sunday.” He’s all suspicious, “Where was Sunday? Where had I left Sunday?” And I told him and he didn’t believe me.HARRY: What? SALLY: They don’t make Sunday.HARRY: Why not?SALLY: Because of God.

“this is sunday, and the question arises, what’ll I start tomorrow?
