“Is it Friday yet?”

"Is it Friday yet?” is a work saying that has been printed on many images. “Is it Friday yet?” was cited in print in 1913 and 1927, but became popular by at least 1978, when it was put on a poster along with a picture of a kitten.

Australian-Canadian country music singer Gord Bamford released the song “Is It Friday Yet?” in 2012.

It portrays a kitten with a world of expression on its face saying, “Is it FRIDAY yet?” It’s an amusing picture, and my friend assures me it never fails to evoke comments such as, “That’s how I feel, too.”

Friday. What is it about our job that makes Friday such a pinnacle day?
