By some strange malevolent happenstance, the designers seem to have left in five whole working days between weekends. Clearly, for some of us, at least, this gap is far too long to endure, and a call for corrective action is almost a physiological response (hic). Although the Sri Lankan government does grant us the highest number of public holidays in the world, I find that it is just not good enough.
Therefore, the reappearance of the Colombo Pub Quiz on my social calendar is very welcome. Now, it’s on every Wednesday at 8pm at Inn On The Green, nestled snugly between a Tuesday and a Thursday. You will notice, that the quiz is symmetrically placed between two working days at either end – equidistant, as it were, from the weekends. Thus, it provides an oasis in the middle of the week, where journeymen traversing the vast desert of the five-day working week can stop a while and quench their thirst.
Sheer genius, if you ask me. 😉
