Friday/Fryday

When I was a kid, I used to love the little calendars
we got from the bank, and the ones in the classroom. Each Friday was marked with
a little picture of a fish, even though these were NOT religious calendars.
This made me think that "Friday" was just another way of spelling "FRY-day."
In other words, I thought the day was named "Friday" because it was the day
on which my Catholic neighbors would fry fish!

I grew up in the times of fasting and abstaining on Fridays. I still keep that practice. A good piece of fried catfish is dee-licious!

Barb,
I don't fast on Fridays, but I do abstain from meat, junk food, sodas, and chocolate.
