I Hate Mondays

In the comic strip Garfield, he is known to say, “I hate Mondays.” I agree completely with the fat yellow tabby. I also like lasagna. While for me, Mondays mean returning to work after the weekend, I’ve never really understood why Garfield hated Mondays. He’s a cat, after all. He is going to spend the day eating and sleeping. Maybe, Garfield really hated Mondays because Jon had to return to work, and he missed Jon when he was gone. Garfield’s cartoonist actually gave a reason for why Garfield hated Mondays:

“Garfield does not have a job, Garfield does not go to school and every day is the same. Nevertheless every Monday is just a reminder that his life is the same old, same old cycling again and for some reason even though his life is pretty much the same every day on Mondays specifically, awful things tend to happen to him physically.”

 I did not want to wake up this morning, nor do I want to go to work. Alas, I am awake, typing this post, and having my breakfast. I will watch a little of the news, then take a shower, get ready for work, and head out the door. Ugh! I hate Mondays.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
