It's Friday! Yeah! But What Does That Mean? (O.o)

Happy Friday everybody! When I was a kid I remember seeing a Coca Cola commercial on television. The young girl is sitting at her desk in a work suit – white blouse, black skirt, black jacket – wearing eyeglasses, sitting at her desk in front of a typewriter typing away, hair fastened into a neat tight bun – looking ever so proficient. Somebody indicates to her that the work day is over and she goes: “Yeah! And it's Friday!” She pushes back the chair on wheels from her desk, takes off her eye glasses, yanks at the back of her head to let her hair loose and shake it! Next scene is her strolling along in some area (looked like a beach ~ can't remember), dressed casual in her blue jeans, still wearing a white blouse, and drinking a bottle of Coca Cola. My late sister was watching that commercial with me and says, in her most boring monotone voice: “So that's what Friday means?” My late sister. Always one for being super enthusiastic and excited! (Not.) First of all, does anybody even remember that commercial? Secondly, what does Friday mean to you? ~ Do you get to take yet another selfie and post it on Instagram? ~ Do you leave work to rush home and order a pizza and watch movies all night? ~ Do you go out partying and clubbing with your friends? For me? I get to go to the grocery store in the afternoon. In the evening, might watch a Bollywood movie or a Korean historical drama series. Will probably keep working on my laptop, while being entertained, trying to earn a few more pennies. Then go to sleep. Yeah! But it's Friday!!

Seeing I work from home I don't do anything much different on weekends. I get up at the same time - between 5 and 6a.m. and work as usual. When time allows I might go to the beach, - and I do look forward to two hours of my favorite soap opera "Generations" on Sundays.

Happy Friday back at ya! Thanks for mentioning my sister. I was unable to say Good bye to her. When she passed we were separated by miles in between two different states. Before I knew it she was gone. All I have now are my memories. But they are good memories.

Your sister's dry humor sounds like it was very entertaining. I don't remember that commercial, but then I probably don't remember many commercials. Fridays mean nothing to me. As a child it meant staying up as late as I wanted, and watching TGIF on ABC.
