Button, do you know what “Monday blues” mean?
I do but, nevertheless, tell me.
It happens with kids. It happens with adults. It’s that sinking feeling that kids and adults feel when they have to go back to school or work on Monday after a weekend of fun and revelry. I think pets also feel the same way when their loved ones leave to go to school or work on the first day of the week.
Have you experienced these blues?
Plenty of times. If you visit some schools, you’ll see mothers almost dragging or carrying bawling kids to school. It’s not like these kids hate school but the thought of returning to school after that short break is not such a good idea for them or even to adults to return to sit behind their desks and bend backwards to please their demanding bosses.
But what is the connection? Why are you telling me this?
Because our own Mowgli suffers from “Monday blues” when her mother has to go to work after being with her over the weekend. And the longer the weekend, the worse it gets. You will notice how she comes up with something or the other — be it an ear problem where she vigorously shakes her head to tell us that her ears are irritating her or dragging her bottom on the bed to tell us that she’s feeling some irritation there and similar stuff.
Really? I thought it was all genuine.
Remember to check out if she does all of these on Friday.
So she reverts to these “nakras” so her mother falls for them and stays back home!
Most of the time. I don’t know if her ears were genuinely bothering her this morning as she was flapping them quite a bit but, now that her mother has left for work, she’s sitting outside the kitchen, all calm and composed. She’s not flapped her ear even once since!
