The day after Yesterday

The play-date is the day before
tomorrow and, the one after that.

The party is two sleeps before the last
Family Day, and five after morning tea last week.

One week is shorter than seven days because it’s one!
I want the day to start in the morning not at sunrise.

But you said next week was after this day.

Wednesday is before Tuesday, not Friday!

I said it’s June, not March, because I want my birthday to be today.
