And the number one thing I learned from Jimmy Buffett is....

01. If we weren't all crazy we would go insane!


  1. Why is it all Ok on Monday? Doesn't Friday seem like a better choice?!

  2. Well, according to the lyrics to the song, he's going out of town to play a weekend gig and it'll be all right because Monday he'll be back with his sweetie.

    But for this here interpretation, I'm gonna say sometimes the weekend is the reset button, and Monday is the first day after you pressed it.

    Or maybe it's the "Fool Button" ... I don't know. ;-)
