It’s Friday, I’m in Love

Ever wish your name was Friday? I did. I worked at good old TGI Fridays for seven years part-time and, I won’t lie to you, I loved it. Then I saw the movie “His Girl Friday” and I liked that name even more. I actually tried to give myself the nickname Friday (who does that??). As a surprise to no one, it didn’t catch on. Probably for the best.

But enough with my embarrassing stories… there are those fortunate enough to have been born with the name Friday, as well as the other days of the week. Let’s start at the top.
