Date: Wed, 13 Mar 1996 11:07:26 -0500 From: "Bethany K. Dumas" Subject: Thursday week One of my students forwarded this query to me from a friend of his at another university. Suggestions? "Do you know the expression "Thursday, week" (or it could be any proper name of any weekday, "week")? In case you don't know the phrase, it means "a week from this coming Thursday." Craig has issued a challenge to me to find out the origin of this phrase--you know how I rise to meet a challenge!! Where do you think I should begin my quest?" Thanks, Bethany Bethany K.
