It’s Only Tuesday
AUGUST 26, 2008
WASHINGTON, DC- After running a thousand errands, working hours of overtime, and being stuck in seemingly endless gridlock traffic commuting to and from their jobs, millions of Americans were disheartened to learn that it was, in fact, only Tuesday.
“Tuesday?” San Diego resident Doris Wagner said, “How in the hell is it still Tuesday?”
Tuesday’s arrival stunned a nation still recovering from the nightmarish slog that was Monday, leaving some to wonder if the week was ever going to end, and others to ask what was taking Saturday so goddamn long.
“Ugh,” said Wagner, echoing a national sense of frustration over it not even being Wednesday at the very least.
According to suddenly depressed sources, the feeling that this week may in fat last forever was further compounded by the thought of all the work left to be done tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, and, if Americans make it that far, possibly even Friday , for Christ’s sake.
Fears that the week could actually be going backwards were also expressed.
“Not only do Americans have most of Tuesday morning to contend with, but all of Tuesday afternoon and then Tuesday night,” National Labor Relations Board spokesman David Prynn said. “If our calculations are correct, there is a chance we are in effect closer to last weekend than the one coming up.”
Added Prynn: “Fuck.”
Reports that this all has to be some kind of sick joke could not be confirmed as of press time.
Isolated attempts to make the day go faster, such as glancing at watches or clocks every other minute, compulsively checking e-mail, hiding in the office bathroom, fidgeting, or reading a boring magazine while sitting in the waiting room, have also proved unsuccessful, sources report.
The National Instituted of Standards and Technology, which oversees the official time of the United States, is flatly denying that it has slowed or otherwise tampered with Tuesday’s progression.
“The current Tuesday is keeping apace with past Tuesdays with no more than ten-thousandth of a second’s variation at the most,” NIST spokeswoman Dr. Geraldine Schach said. “However, I sympathize with the common consensus that this week has already been a colossal pain in the neck.”
Labor Secretary Elaine Chao released a statement addressing widespread speculation that it might as well be Monday for all anyone cares.
“We understand this day has been tough on many of you, what with meetings mercilessly dragging on and an entire stack of files still left to organize,” Chao’s statement read in part. “Yet we urge Americans to show patience. The midweek hump is just around the corner, and we have strong reason to believe that Saturday will be here before you know it.”
“Go about your lives as best you can,” the statement continued.” Do not, we repeat, do not take a sick day, as it’ll make the rest of the week that much harder to endure.”
In the meantime, citizens are doing their best to cope with the interminable week, though Tuesday is still hours away from ending.
“The more I try to speed it along, the longer it almost seems to take,” said Dale Bouchard, a Chicago-based broker who has been waiting for today to be over since it first began earlier this morning. “Honestly, today could not have come at a worse time this week.”
In the meantime, the latest wristwatch consultations indicate that it is somehow still Tuesday, if that makes any sense at all.

This letter is going to be a book of revelations to many readers. In particular, many will be surprised to learn that I contend that it needs to be taken into account that Mr. Adam J Lorenz discounts important principles of our culture as mere platitudes. Let’s review the errors in Adam’s statements in order. First, lackluster, disrespectful slimeballs are burdened with the preconceived ideas or feeble understanding of the circles to which they previously belonged both politically and philosophically.
Given a choice of having Adam undermine everyone’s capacity to see, or change, the world as a whole or having my bicuspids extracted sans Novocaine, I would embrace the pliers, purchase some Polident Partials, and call it a day. He insists that his grievances are Holy Writ. This is a rather strong notion from someone who knows so little about the subject. My purpose here is not to weaken the critical links in Adam’s nexus of snotty racialism. Well, okay, it is. But I should point out that we are at war. Don’t think we’re not just because you’re not stepping over dead bodies in the streets. We’re at war with Adam’s baleful hatchet jobs. We’re at war with his mad values. And we’re at war with his dim-witted prognoses. As in any war, we ought to be aware of the fact that it’s a pity that two thousand years after Christ, the voices of saturnine oafs like Adam can still be heard, worse still that they’re listened to, and worst of all that anyone believes them.
Adam’s trucklers all have serious personal problems. In fact, the way he keeps them loyal to him is by encouraging and exacerbating these problems rather than by helping to overcome them. Adam uses the very intellectual tools he criticizes, namely consequentialist arguments rather than arguments about truth or falsity. If there is one truth in this world, it’s that I do not have the time, in one sitting, to go into the long answer as to why he gives his most banal statements an appearance of profundity by utilizing polysyllabic words such as “pericardiomediastinitis” and “dendrochronological”. But the short answer is that his cultists are merely ciphers. Adam is the one who decides whether or not to destroy our sense of safety in the places we ordinarily imagine we can flee to. Adam is the one who gives out the orders to damn this nation and this world to Hell. And Adam is the one trying to conceal how he has vowed that before the year is over he’ll advocate fatalistic acceptance of an impudent new world order. This is hardly news; Adam has been vowing that for months with the regularity of a metronome. What is news is that every time he utters or writes a statement that supports nepotism — even indirectly — it sends a message that he can scare us by using big words like “poluphloisboiotatotic”. I feel that we mustn’t let him make such statements, partly because the ability to artistically arrange words in an amusing manner does not qualify someone to be the leading social voice of a country, but primarily because if he thinks that he can make me go into hiding then he’s barking up the wrong tree. As I conclude this letter, let me remind you that my goal in writing it was not only to shoo away Mr. Adam J Lorenz like the annoying bug that he is. I sought also to use this letter as a means to focus on the major economic, social, and political forces that provide the setting for the expression of a lackadaisical agenda.
