This trope is when a character dismisses something as ordinary, or at least, attempts to be nonchalant over something unusual or impressive, either as a response to another character's inquiry, or as a commentary on an Unusually Uninteresting Sight("Was that an explosion? Must be Tuesday."). Occassionally also used as an Insult Backfire, when a character is insulted, and replies flippantly that the insult only applies on Tuesday.
