Tuesday's child, they say, is full of grace, but I know better. Tuesday is my day. Tuesday's child is angry, violent and destructive. Tuesday's child is the child of cavalry charges, hand grenades, bayonets, and atomic weapons. Tuesday's child is cruel and unforgiving, and loves death.

The Spanish had it right when they said, "Don't get married or begin a long journey on Tuesday."

For those who love peace, Tuesday is not their day. Tuesday is my day.


But don't take my word for it. Just look at the name itself. Tuesday. Tyr's Day. In Nepali it is Mangalwar, the Day of Mangala, and in French Mardi, the Day of Mars.

I am the god of war, and this is my day.
