A few weeks ago, we got an intriguing email about the Anno-Planning section at the front of our Rhodia planners:
The Monday of most weeks is sequentially numbered (1-52), although several weeks have Tuesday numbered. My wife’s Louis Vuitton refill has the same pattern. Just to satisfy our curiosity, what determines whether a Monday or Tuesday is numbered?
I can’t speak for Louis Vuitton, but the answer on our end is that Tuesdays get the number whenever there’s too much text on the Monday that precedes them. For instance, on Monday January 18th, 2010, the text reads: MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.’S BIRTHDAY OBSERVED (USA). So the week label, 3, was pushed down to Tuesday the 19th.
