…”Premium Fridays: Japan gives its workers a break-to go shopping”…
SOMETHING ABOUT….“an optional scheme that allows employees to clock off early at 3 pm every last Friday of the month, with government hoping the move will boost consumer spending.”
I believe that it is a mandatory Law of the Universe that on Fridays, you have to do something a little fun. ~Hanna Rhoades, 2006
When do we journey down to town?
If rough or fine, if rain or shine,
When do we smooth our wrinkles out?
When do we nurse our corns and gout?
When do we heal our wounds and smarts?
When do we make our pies and tarts?
When do the children loudest shout?
When bring the choicest playthings out?
When do we take our trips and jaunts?
When do we gather fruits and flower,
And spend our happy half-day hours,
In shady lanes and mossy bowers?
~Jane Moore, “Saturday,” Wild Flowers of Song, 1880
Middle age is when you’re sitting at home on a Saturday night and the telephone rings and you hope it isn’t for you. ~Ogden Nash
