So sorry this post is coming in late, I had some internet issues, please bear with me…
Like most people, I look forward to Fridays, and like most people, I don’t know the history or origin of the phrase; I just love the TGIF chorus. And if for any reason you don’t know what TGIF is *frownsface* … well, i’ll just tell you.
T – Thank
G – God/goodness
I – It’s
F – Friday
Yeah, that’s what TGIF stands for.
I love Fridays specially cos it’s the beginning of the weekend. It’s a day I don’t have to dress up so much for work, it’s a day I can afford to dress down a bit and get away with it, it’s a day I smile broadly once I remember I won’t have to dress up for work the next day.
I didn’t comprehend the whole fuss about Fridays back in school, infact the #TGIF didn’t make much sense back then cos my lecturers just had a way of converting Saturdays into another school day – they’d either fix a lecture, test or exam to ensure we didn’t have that TGIF groove or whatever. They practically took over our Saturdays and public holidays, i’m sure the (Super) Lions and Lionesses will bear me witness, lol.
Now i’m working, TGIF makes more sense to me. It’s Friday means I can afford to sleep late at night; it’s Friday means I can spend more time in my midnight prayers and not worry about waking up late; it’s Friday means I can sleep in on Saturday mornings and not have to wake up by 5am; it’s Friday means I don’t have to set my alarm or leave my bed when my internal alarm rings the next day.
I know we should thank God specially for each new day but I still say resounding #TGIF every Friday and I’ve added the #TGIS (Thank God It’s Saturday) to my hash tags cos it’s officially my sleep in day, lol.
And for those that have to work Saturdays and Sundays too, pele. I know that feeling cos i’ve been there before… I don’t like working at the office during the weekends but what can we do? When duty calls, we work. I’ve had that kinda job before and will probably still have something similar in the near future.
In the meantime, i’ll just sip my bottle of water and enjoy the bus ride home. #TGIF.
