When you're working the 9 to 5 workday grind, counting down until the weekend, it can be hard to imagine not knowing what day it is.
But when you're travelling... all that goes out the window and every day feels like Saturday. So if you really need to catch up, you can ask:
Once your Italian friend has stopped rolling his or her eyes, you'll hear one of the following...
Mildly interesting fact: In Italian days of the week and months of the year do not start with capital letters. (English is actually in the minority in this practice.)
Depending on how long you've been on holiday, you may need to take a look at my months of the year lesson as well.
Wednesday may be "hump day" in your working week, but to Italians the day in the middle of the week is Thursday, as illustrated by the idiom "Sei sempre in mezzo come il giovedì" (literally"You're always in the middle like Thursday") or simply "Sei come il giovedì" ("You're like Thursday").
It means that a person is always embroiled in a situation, always in the middle of some drama. We all know someone a little like that, right?
