I’m taking Wednesdays off this month to work on the house. One of my co-workers was mildly astonished. He’d much prefer to take a vacation day on a Monday or Friday, thus extending his weekend. I like taking Wednesday off because it breaks the work week nicely. Two days on, one day off, two days on, two days off… I could get used to that. “The two-day work week.” I think I’ll patent the idea.
