Mondays Finish the Story – April 6th, 2015 – The Tiwesdag


Finish the story begins with:Once upon a time in a land far, far away...”

Lived the Tiwesdag a forlorn race of people despite living in an idyllic landscape.

The reason for their misery was that their week only had six days. For the Tiwesdag here was no Tuesday.

Adding to their wretchedness was that visitors from other galaxies had told them how good Tuesdays were.

It saddened them that they were not blessed with a Tuesday. They went from a Monday to Wednesday all the while wondering what they were missing out on as yet another potential Tuesday slipped past.

It was their own fault as they had received a copy of the Bible but because life was so blissful no one thought to read Genesis.

It also meant that everyday was a workday, which only added to their sense of malaise. The concept of a day of rest was foreign to them.

After my visit it wasn’t hard to understand their despondency.

    Very clever Michael. They should have started from the beginning of the Good Book 🙂

    I don’t think I’ll take my vacation on Tiwesdag or whatever the Tiwesdag call their blissful/wistful/wishful planet!
    Enjoyed your story. I have an appointment with the dentist on Tuesday. Humm, maybe Tiwesdagia isn’t so bad a place after all, lol.

    Like the choice of name for the people! They should have read Genesis! Their lives would be much better if they had! Thank you Michael for your continuing participation in the MFtS challenge! Be well… ^..^

    This has me chuckling well and truly, which says something for Mondays – because I really really don’t like Mondays. I could definitely skip Mondays.

    Sheer creativity at such an early hour (for me) is enough to help me get through my day. Thanks Michael 😀

    • Well Mercy if you want to avoid Mondays you visit the neighbouring planet of Mōnandæg a few light years away and no where near as idyllic, but Sunday is party day there.

        Oh well, then how do I go about booking me a one way ticket?! 😉 Please and thank you!

    I’m not a fan of Tuesdays and was already packing my bags to move there when I discovered that every day is a workday. I’ve changed my mind!

    Oh goodness – one less day in the wek & all work days. No thank you. ‘ll suffer with a 7 day week & only two days for a free weekend (until I win the lottery – of course 😉 ).

  7. Very creative story! I really liked it. I was confused, however, why they chose not to have a Tuesday instead of a Monday. I am fairly certain that had they decided to not have a Monday, they would take three days off and only have a 3 day work week, or they could have read Genesis. :D:D

    This a very creative and imaginative little story! It is great when you can create a civilisation from a prompt.

    Very clever. We should not complain about Mondays….I think Tuesdays would certainly be worse! Gee! Who wants to work the whole week?? Our Mondays are sounding Pretty Good!

    Tuesday! The day time forgot when she introduced Monday to Wednesday ~ Sunday and the Good Book screamed with dismay ~ The workers will be in tizzy working a six day week ~ Well written Michael ~ 🙂

    Working every day of a six day week – eek! I think the Tiwesdag need to go on strike! An interesting story. 🙂

    • Well its the problem with dare I say it Louise, of not having read the bible and settled on the seven days not six….in their case the day of rest was never thought of…..

  12. That’s so sad, I just had to laugh… Great read!

    For many years I had a friend in retail who had both Saturdays and Sundays off.
    Just recently had to switch to Sundays and Mondays off. I worked in retail for many years – so I just didn’t have any sympathy to offer. They still don’t work any evenings. How they manage that is beyond me…but as for being gifted any book and not reading it. There is always a great loss…

    Well done. Thanks for stopping by my post on the prompt 🙂

  14. Poor people. Now they know that they were missing. I used to get two days off a week. When I was teaching in primary grades in the U.S., I also go off the summer. That kind of spoiled me. When I became a parent, I had no days off. Good story and creative use of the promt. Well done, Michael. 😀 — Suzanne
