Lent Day – Twenty-Three
Thursday, March 27, 2014 – 10:04 PM. Two hours before the day is over. On what day of the week were you born? Mondays child is fair of face, Tuesdays child is full of grace, Wednesdays child is full of woe, Thursdays child has far to go, Fridays child is loving and giving, Saturdays child works hard for his living, And the child that is born on the Sabbath day is bonny and blithe, and good and gay. In the new version, the Sabbath child is happy and wise instead of bonny and blithe and good and gay. I was born on Thursday and I had far to go today. That is why this is late. Did you know that Wednesday of The Addams Family was named because of the poem? Do you recall this mnemonic device to teach children the days of the week? Solomon Grundy, Born on a Monday, Christened on Tuesday, Married on Wednesday, Took ill on Thursday, Grew worse on Friday, Died on Saturday Buried on Sunday. That was the end, Of Solomon Grundy. And that’s the end of Day Twenty-Three!
