Thank God it isn’t still Thursday!
I can’t say TGIF because Friday is just starting. It may be worse than Thursday for all I know.
TGIF is an aspirational thought that may or may not be correct. If Friday is a disappointment, I can still look forward to Saturday–or even Sunday if Saturday goes bad too– and not be wrong and regret saying TGIF.
I’m just overly cautious like that.
I mean, sure, I’d like to have a good day today and thank God for it and all that. But more than that I want to avoid making a mistake by getting my hopes up only to be disappointed.
For all I know….today (Friday) could be worse than Thursday.
But by saying TGIIST, I cover my bases. I really am glad Thursday is over. It was lousy yesterday. And by not getting my hopes up for today, I won’t be disappointed.
So, you know, TGIIST. That’s my way today of saying something positive that isn’t possibly misleading.
Did I explain that well enough or do I need to elaborate more?
Anyway, I guess what I’m saying is, if you want to have a good day today, go ahead.
But if it turns out to be a bad day, don’t blame me.
Blame somebody who said TGIF.
