We are so glad that Mr Wickstein got the code for daysoftheweek just in time for one of these superstitious special days. Not that boynton is particularly Paraskevidekatriaphobic. And she has never even considered friday in itself to be suspect.
It is said: Never change your bed on Friday; it will bring bad dreams. Don't start a trip on Friday or you will have misfortune. If you cut your nails on Friday, you cut them for sorrow. Ships that set sail on a Friday will have bad luck – as in the tale of H.M.S. Friday ...
She's always been more your monday monday person, apparently in good company.
Comments: can't trust that day
Prefer Creek Alley.

There's a great web site devoted to that song Pithy.
(with slightly different spelling) that unravels the manifold references in the lyrics.
I love it too, but I actually do like the Monday song. That elusive pop x factor eluded Dennis Doherty too apparently (according to Tv doco on John Phillips) "a song about Monday?". Monday and nothing and everything I say.
monday monday...so good to sing....

Well in our family, Boynton, this rule was was strictly adhered to: No nail cutting on a Sunday. To this day I just can't bring myself to do it.

That'd be Denny, Boynty.
