Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

No, wait for it! NOT the last Torrid Tuesday!


You can't see it, but my head is on my desk. I was all ready to wave farewell to Torrid Tuesdays for 2015, when a quick search showed me the season doesn't change until 9/23.  Lol..... oh, you quirky solstices, you.

So HERE is the one before the last. Which makes last week's the next-to-the-next-to-the-last.... And so on, and so on.....
