A friend posted something yesterday with a dateline, but there was a typo: the first letter of the day of the week was missing, so it said "uesday, July 29, 2014".

This sent my mind off on a tangent of renaming the days of the week based on omitting their first letters. This is what I came up with:

  • Un-day
  • On-day
  • Use-day
  • Ends-day
  • Hers-day
  • Rye-day
  • Adder-day

Now my brain wants to come up with back-stories as to how these days got named the way they did. Like, Un-Day is the day of rest, so it's not really a "day" at all. Or, On-Day is the first day of the work week, so you have to be "on" again after the "off" of Un-Day. Or, Rye-day is the traditional day of the week for starting a new batch of kvass, and for opening and enjoying the batch started the previous Rye-day.

I could see a lighthearted or parody fantasy story using day names like this.
