M: So if you were a day of the week, which day would you be?
R: I would be Friday. There's a song about Friday by Rebecca Black.
M: Ah, how does it go? Friday, I'm in love.
R: No, no, no. Let's not go there.
M: No, come on, how does it go? Just give us a tune, come on, Rory.
R: Because, well, first of all, I can't give you a tune because it's extremely autotuned. I think she was 13 when she sang that song. And it's also very irritating. If you Google Friday by Rebecca Black then you will relive your trauma from 2011 when it came out.
M: Fridays. Dear listener, it's interesting that when you hear Friday, you kind of feel happiness. Because Fridays are the happiest days of our working week. Yeah? And some people say that work starts on Monday, life begins on Friday. Do you like it?
R: Only if you're like a slave to your job. You could have a nice job and like going to work every day like me. And hopefully you.
M: Yeah, but you know, sometimes I do something fun on a Monday and I kind of feel like, wow, it's kind of it feels like wrong, kind of to have the time of your life on a Monday. But it's great, but still kind of like, it's kind of it seems weird, strange. And it's interesting that I've read some research, and they researched it, that days of the week. And different days evoke different emotions. So when we think about Mondays, like, we can feel, they make us feel blue, and we have associations, like what associations do you have with Mondays? So what words pop into your head when you think about Mondays?
R: Work, probably.
M: And usually people say boring, hectic. Hectic like busy. Tired. But Fridays, what associations do you have about Fridays? Party, freedom, weekends. Yeah.
R: But that's not to do with the day. That's to do with what you're doing on the day.
M: Yeah, but it's kind of like the day is associated with these things.
R: Only if you're a slave to your job. Free yourself, and enjoy every day.
M: Right, dear listener, so the question could be about a day of the week. So we're talking about weekdays. And Rory said that I love Fridays, because they are considered a weekday, but it's a taster of the weekend.
R: Yeah. Or a taster for the weekend.
M: Yeah, taster, like you taste the weekend. For some people, it's already the weekend.
R: Yeah, like for me.
M: And on a Friday, we feel that there is so much optimism and potential in the air. Like... Friday... The weekend is coming. There's so much potential. Potential like you can do a lot of things and optimism. And also, dear listener, we're talking about weekdays, or you can call them mid-week days. Well, weekdays from Monday to Friday. Mid weekdays. So what are mid-weekdays? Mid-middle.
