saturn stands for saturday

Saturday just started. I created the days of the week some time ago. Saturday was supposed to be the 7th day of the week. But airliners came and applied the standard working week, demoting saturday to number 6.

Saturday became less of a working day, and more of a shopping day. Leisure time has to be spend this day. Else we wouldn’t feel complete.

This mind frame obliges us to stand in line most of this day, and keep ourselves occupied.

We might have time to think for ourselves and just stay home, have some rest and keep our money to ourselves. We could enjoy being together as a family, or take the time to visit friends. But unfortunately we can’t. There is no time.

  1. We often spend Saturday afternoons drinking tea and catching up and sometimes friends stop in to chat too. Overall, our Saturdays are relaxed, as we don’t shop on our precious weekend time. We shop during the week.

    • I’m sure you do this, and many others will indeed relax on Saturdays and Sundays but I also see how many are caught up in bringing the children to any kind of activities, then hurrying themselves through a fixed weekend schedule …
      But your example shows that it doesn’t have to be like that. It shouldn’t.
