Friday is a Pain Holiday

I'm at Amerige Tobacco, picking up some smokes and iced tea. The Egyptian man who is the owner winces, and feels his abdomen.

"Next week, I have surgery. I have kidney stones."

A girl in the shop says, "It's Friday night. Don't be such a downer."

"I don't feel pain on Friday?" he asks.

"Friday is a pain holiday," I offer, and everyone seems to agree that this would be a good idea.
