On Tuesday tuitions, our Terence tore his hair
"Oh tubular Tuesday blues!" said he, a-tottering tetchily
"Why choose Tuesday?", he masticated portlily
"A thorough Thursday, now, beats Tuesday's tumescence
But Tuesday's juices, they just don't jive."

Dear Shanks: I was fascinated to discover title you mentioned: "Training for the Sexual Olympics". I have never been able to figure out an acceptable way of judging such Olympics. I queried Capitol Kiwi about it and he got upset.

could not find a word that alliterates nicely with Tuesday ...has the same initial sound combination of consonant and vowel.

Alliteration does not require matching vowel sounds. Not sure whether nice alliteration does.

If you pronounced Tuesday correctly (i.e., carefully) you could alliterate it with, e.g., tamarind.
