Mondays are like newborns. They all start out ugly.

Still, we want the best for them. We dream of what they’ll be, the opportunities awaiting them, the open doors, and fresh starts. We see their future as bright and limitless.

Others are disappointing. They’re unproductive, dare we say “lazy”. Ending much uglier than when they started.
