‘How Was Your Weekend?’
It never fails, every Monday at least one person you regularly see asks, "How was your weekend?" Generally, we answer with the basics. "It was nice. And yours?" "Busy! How about yours?"
Would we really care if someone told us what they really did over the weekend?
For instance, if anyone asked me about this weekend, my answer would go along these lines:
"Friday, I left work close to 7 p.m. and went home to spend quality time with my daughter. We ate and played until we were tired and went to bed. I woke up at 6 a.m. Saturday morning to do everything I needed to do before being on the air at 9 a.m. My shift was over at 2. Once I got home, I went to my computer to do some more work and fell asleep close to 10 p.m. Then, I woke up Sunday around 6 a.m. to do some more work before waking my daughter around 8 a.m. so I could wash her hair before church. After church, I helped with Family Day festivities, which ended around 3 p.m. and then took Jireh to Upsurge Trampoline Park from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. before heading to the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater. I was there from 5 p.m. until a little after the concert started at 8 p.m. I then took the station vehicle back to the station and went home to prepare Jireh for this school week. We said our prayers, I got her to bed, and then I went back to do more work. I worked until around midnight and woke up at 5 a.m. to start my day."
You didn't really want to know all that, did you? Then, stop asking people how their weekend went. It went TOO FAST! That's how it went.
