It’s the Monday of my first five-day week since before Christmas, my football team blew a 21-3 lead last night, I slept in a 50-degree room and woke up with a stiff back this morning, this weekend wasn’t nearly long enough to blow off all the pent-up stress from last week, my student loan payments are due today, I have meetings all day long off-site, and there’s a strong possibility that given my workload, I may miss 24 tonight.
Oh, and it’s also the most depressing day of the year. Yes, that’s right. Psychologists say that with the Christmas debt, cold winter weather, lack of sunlight, broken New Year’s resolutions, and – duh – the fact that it’s Monday, today is the downer-est of downer days.
Not to, uh, bring you down or anything.
