The Curse of the Weekend Warrior
Have you noticed lately that the weather on the weekdays is pretty nice and when we finally get to the weekend things head south, as far as nice days go? Years ago, before I actually settled down in one place, I used to live in Southern California in the Winter and came back in the Spring to work at a resort bar and restaurant near Detroit Lakes, Minnesota for the Summer season. It seemed that most weekends, the weather was crappy and not good for most lake activities. We called the weekend people Weekend Warriors. Since we were all in the food and beverage business, we worked weekends and usually had Mondays and Tuesdays off. ninety percent of the time, Mondays and Tuesdays were the nicest days of the week. Thus, curse of the Weekend Warriors I think about those days often since I too became a Weekend Warrior. But, as you know, we take what nice weather we can get. It's always a crap shoot.
