Mondays are dressed in blues and grays. Smart suits and elegant dresses. Hats, gloves, brogues, the works. Men and women alike fancy the imagined loftiness of Mondays, when new beginnings are promised and sometimes fulfilled. There is a small faction, however, who stay in bed in their sleepwear, carving their bodies onto the mattress and forcing their eyes shut to dream some more. This is elegant, too, they say. Someday, elegance will mean not caring about appearances (although they will say those are good, old days), elegance will be about being able to conduct one's life straight from the bed.
