Why is it called Thursday Island?

"Can we have a barbecue by the beach, mummy?" asked Imogen last night.

"Not tonight," says Jo.

"When then?"

"Thursday," says Jo.

There's a slight pause.

"Do you know why it's called Thursday Island?" asks Imogen.

"No, why?" says Jo

"Because every day is Thursday." Pause. "So can we have a barbecue tonight?"

Imogen is 4 going on 28.
