    A Wednesday

    Hi,

    Is the following sentence natural in conversation?

    Do you remember a couple of weeks back when I took a Wednesday off?

    Thanks,

    MG.

    Do you remember when I took a Wednesday off [there're] a couple of weeks ago?

    This is fine apart from the inexplicable bracketed phrase "there're". It's a) a very rarely used contraction and b) has no place in this sentence.
