At the risk of sounding overly optimistic, which is something I’m overly prone to, which often leads to being overly disappointed…I just wanted to let you know there’s been some movement with the Wednesday situation.
Nothing for certain, but the good news is the Mexican government has agreed to let Wednesday off with a warning, providing it leaves the country immediately.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Wednesday without some sort of a hiccup to work through.
It seems he was carrying Saturdays passport and not his own, which is really dumb because everyone knows Saturday and Wednesday look nothing alike.
You know…except for the big ears.
Plus, I think Wednesday is sporting one of those cheesy goatee beards now…and a nose ring.
So from what I’ve been able to determine, they dragged his fat midweek butt into one of those Homeland Security border interrogation facilities.
Of course Wednesday, being Wednesday, starts in with the indignant, “You don’t know what kind of day you’re dealing with here,” speech, which you can imagine didn’t do him any favors.
Next thing you know this big guy walks in and says “So I can see it’s gonna be one of those days, huh?”
Then closes the door.
Which doesn’t sound like much, at least to me, but apparently he used tone, which, Wednesday, really being Wednesday, immediately took to be threatening.
I don’t have a lot of details as to what actually went on behind that closed door but the next thing I know I’m getting a call from Wednesday saying he’s sorry for all the fuss he’s caused, and they’ll let him come home as long as he can prove he’s gainfully employed.
He said he wants to sit down with me without the agents and the lawyers; just the two of us mano y dia.
So now I’ve got some Seinfeld like “hand” in this little matter, which we’ll describe as upper…way upper there.
But I’m not a spiteful person who likes to hold a grudge. I believe in second chances.
So I’ve decided to think about it.
For a while….
Plus I have to see how all the other days feel about the whole situation.
And, as you know, getting any kind of consensus from the rest of the week is always tricky; you never know what they’re thinking from one day to the next.
It’s just a day to day kind of thing.
