Not to be crass or non-PC, but have you ever been called a Monday?
The word is causing a huge uproar this week as Red Sox out fielder Carl Crawford alleged he was called this racial epithet during a game in Portland this week.
I mean I'm a hip guy. I still wear my Adidas shell toes, my jeans are cuffed and I have every color Champion sweatshirt available! So I'm still with the times right? I asked my wife if she knew about the meaning of this "horrible" word, and she thought I was crazy! So I went to THE souce, The Urban Dictionary, and there it was in bold print. I cannot type what the definition said, so go ahead and look it up.
I started to think, "What's the origin of this?". Who actually thinks this stuff up? Are there any other offensive days?
Because Wednesday used to be "Prince Spaghetti Day," is that day offensive to Italians?
I always look at Saturday or Sunday as lazy days, but if I call someone that, am I saying THEY are lazy?
I guess the worst days you could be called are Tuesday or Thursday, because NOTHING happens on those days. And the best would be Friday, who doesn't love a Good Friday?
There are way too many people with nothing to do than to assign inane meaning to words that have been around forever! I've never called anyone a day of the week because it would be silly and make me look stupid. I hope ALL people learn to let go, and everyone can see how utterly ridiculous this whole thing
Call me Monday, call me Friday or even call me Tuesday, just don't call me
late for dinner!
See I'm up to date on all the lingo!
