The Five-Day Weekend: An Idea Whose Time Has Come

Overheard in a Phoenix restaurant: "I need to start taking a five-day weekend."

Once unthinkable, a five day weekend is now eminently possible now that Obama is in the White House, the oceans have started receding, the earth has begun to cool, and even the birds have resumed their chirping. Yes, chirp, we, chirp, can!

How would it work? Thursday through Monday? Friday through Tuesday? The person I overheard suggested Wednesday through Sunday.

If this is what it takes to stimulate the country and get America back on track, I'm willing to try it.

I may need to stay home from work just to think about it.

And that's the way the Eight-Days-A-Week Ball bounces.

Personally, I think we ought to give the "merge all the weekends into one enormous weekend" a chance. When its over, if we dont like it we can imdeately go back to having normal weekends again. :D
