Best Day of the Week

Got your clothesline fort ready?
I don't care who you are, when Friday rolls around you do the Happydance.

Got homework? Forget it! Monday's a million miles away. Stuck in traffic. At a 4-way stop. In a construction zone.

Today's GOLDEN.

Today the clock will reach 5 p.m. and slow down to be one endless evening of bare feet and dandelions, bonfire smoke and marshmallows, fireflies and twilight. It'll be a bottomless beer sipped to the sounds of nightbirds and the scent of lilacs. It'll be kids chasing each other in the dark, stories read by flashlight, stars in the sky for wishing upon.

It'll be just one night and forever, too.

But only today. So don't blink or you'll miss it! Stay in The Moment.

Because when tomorrow comes, there'll be nothing endless about it. There'll be time for clothesline forts and Popsicles and a chapter or two, perhaps. But the clock will make up for today's shenanigans. And Monday will be here again in the blink of an eye.

But I don't have to tell you that, do I?

So for now I'll just remind you that it's Friday; time to get our dancing shoes on!
