Nursery Stuff

I hunted this up for friends who recently had a baby and showed it to dinner guests last night to see if anyone remembered what day of the week they'd been born. A gay guest hit the last two words, roared with laughter and said, "Oh, well - that explains it!"

Here's the poem:

Monday's child is fair of face

Tuesday's child s full of grace

Wednesday's child is full of woe

Thursday's child has far to go

Friday's child is loving and giving

Saturday's child works hard for a living

And the child that is born on the Sabbath Day
is bonny and blithe and good and gay.

"Sabbath Day" indicates that this is a verrry old rhyme.
