From the Dark Side
As the Domino's commercial on TV last night pointed out, Tuesday is the least popular night of the week. It isn't the dreaded Monday, nor that Happy Hump Day Wednesday, nor even the nearly-Friday Thursday. It is just a day where we all sit around contemplating the better part of the week left ahead and all the commuting, laundry, car washing, marketing and other inanities that need to be taken care of during the week.
