Poor Monday. Everyone knows he's the worst. Every other day of the week has something wonderful about them, even if Tuesday's best quality is that she's NOT Monday. So Monday tries his best to get people to like him, but Monday is just not cut out for Sunday's naps or Thursday's frantic energy. Finally, he decides to just not show up at all. But when the other days start looking more and more like Monday himself, Monday realizes that everyone has a job to do in a week.
