When the day after tomorrow is yesterday, today will be as far from Wednesday as today was from Wednesday when the day before yesterday was tomorrow. What is the day after this day? The answer is not tomorrow . ------------------ Any similarities between what I say and what I mean are purely coincidental.

When the day before yesterday was tomorrow falls on -3. These two days are equally far from Wednesday, which must therefore be 0 (today). The next day is Thursday.

What day was it the day before yesterday? 4) Tomorrow there are four days left untill Sunday. What day is it the day after tomorrow? 5) Yesterday, there were five days left untill Sunday.
