Monday’s child

Monday’s child is fair of face,

A. E. Bray’s Traditions of Devonshire (Volume II, pp. 287–288), 1838

As Mondays generally go, this was a fairly good day.

  • I was able to take lunch at the time I mark as “lunch” and not as a “working lunch”
  • No conflicting task priorities
  • Coordinating an expedited annual audit for a lab where a customer will witness a performance test maintained my reputation for “getting things done”
  • As a holder of a corporate purchasing card, I am routinely the most popular guy in the department; however, it was quiet today

  • An expired prescription I requested refilled via phone app over lunch was acknowledged, updated and executed
  • Retrieved my wife’s drycleaning a few days late
  • Dexter and Comet, are bereft of dog chow no longer, thanks to Costco
  • It has not rained since late Saturday afternoon
  • Traffic was, even with an accident along my route, about thirty minutes less than has been routine
  • Confirmed that a garbled voicemail last week about my ailing aunt, actually reported an inoperative home phone
