"two days after the day b4 tomorrow" - the tomorrow and the day b4 would cancel out, leaving the "today" whatever it may be. The day before this is said to be Monday. Monday is 1 day after the current day, due to the 'day before these these days.' i.e.) 2 days("the 2 days after") minus 1 day("the day before").

If Monday is 1 day after the current day, then the day "today" would be Sunday.

I hope I am right, cos I'll feel stupid otherwise. I started backwards and worked my way to the beginning.

The answer is Sunday.

It's easier if you re-phrase the wording:

'Day before 2 days after' = 1 day after.
'Day before tomorrow' = today.

ergo, if 1 day after today is Monday. Today must be Sunday.
