Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

A pretty little morning soother from TheAbsoluteBestGIFS Tumblr, this GIF has collected over 87,208 notes. It features a rainbow of water balloons exploding one by one as a bullet passes through them.

Depending on the corporate culture where you work, you are free to consider it a metaphor for the work week.

If it only had four days.
