my doormat without a sunday paper on it.
my very kind paper man
told me to just text him if i was ever missing a paper
he would drive over to deliver it
i love the sunday paper and especially the crossword
love throwing open my door on a sunday morning
the paper patiently waiting for me on my door mat
love opening it
with a fresh cup of steaming coffee
and diving in
the day came
when it wasn’t there
i sent a gentle text to my paper man
saying there was no sunday paper waiting for me today
he very quickly responded to say –
that is because today is saturday.
ah, i thought.
en.wikipedia.org › wiki › Sunday
Sunday is the day of the week between Saturday and Monday.
Sunday is a day of rest in most Western countries, and a part of the weekend.
“time flows in strange ways on sundays.”
august is the sunday of summer.
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.
