Friday is a period of twenty-four successive hours. Monday is also a period of twenty-four successive hours. There are approximately (give or take) fifty-two Fridays in a given year. There are approximately (give or take) fifty-two Mondays in a given year.

Each Friday has one morning, one afternoon, and one evening. Each Monday also has one morning, one afternoon, and one evening. The average number of daylight hours on a given Friday in December or January is approximately the same as the average number of daylight hours on a given Monday in December or January. The average number of daylight hours on a given Friday in July or August is approximately the same as the average number of daylight hours on a given Monday in July or August.

Each Friday is a single period of the Earth’s rotation on its axis. Each Monday is also a single period of the Earth’s rotation on its axis.

The word “Friday” is a six-letter word ending with the letters “d,” “a,” and “y,” respectively. The word “Monday” is also a six-letter word ending with the letters “d,” “a,” and “y,” respectively.

Any given Friday is a day when any given lottery ticket that you buy has a low-probability of being THE winning ticket that will make you a millionaire overnight. Any given Monday is also a day when any given lottery ticket that you buy has a low-probability of being THE winning ticket that will make you a millionaire overnight.

There is a 1 in 7 probability that your last day on Earth will be a Friday. There is also a 1 in 7 probability that your last day on Earth will be a Monday.

Each 24-hour period of a citizen’s life is an investment of time, energy, and resources. Given the above, how sane is it for us to glorify our Friday’s and agonize over our Mondays?
