Thursday rushing into Friday’s arms

Illustration by 50% Syrian

Thursday is a man that is in a rush to marry Friday. Friday is a confident woman who knows that Thursday will come rushing into her arms every weekend. Every week, Thursday casts a spell on people so that they don’t do what they need to do to keep them  focused on Thursday’s love story.

On Thursdays, you wake up with less energy and you can tell Thursday is using everything in its power to convince his beloved Friday that he is not busy with anything but her. She, Friday, is the center of Thursday’s universe, that’s why Thursday never feels complete, he is always half a person, a man always on the lookout for his other half.

Friday knows her beauty comes from the passion Thursday has for her and from his anticipation to unite with her as midnight approaches. Without Thursday’s full focus on her, Friday won’t be so alluring; without him she won’t shine.

That’s why the midnight that brings Thursday into the arms of Friday is a special midnight, always and forever, it feels like peace.


About 50% Syrian

What is identity? I was raised Arab (of varying origins), with a Syrian mother, and Moroccan, Lebanese and Tunisian great grandfathers and grandmothers. I always felt 50% Syrian, and this percentage mattered to me more than anything else. Love of my life, my late Sufi grandmother, is Syrian... all her bedtime stories were about her life in Damascus. Damascus is where the heart dwells.
