What is a simple way to allow an end user to make a couple of choices to create the command they need to run?

There is 5 server/paths that need to be listed and 5 different files to open, per server/path.

the paths are like this:
\\server1\share\folder\file.day
\\server2\share\folder\file.day
\\server3\share\folder\file.day
\\server4\share\folder\file.day
\\server4\share\folder-2\file.day
file.day is .mon .tue. wed .thu  or .fri

I'd like the user to be able to choose the server\path, then the day,
Something like "Please choose 1. 2. etc, with each server/path listed, total of 5 choices.
Then choose what day it is, 1. monday 2. tuesday, etc.
Creating the command to run, which is (EX: for server1 on tuesday:)

get-filetail -path \\server\share\folder\folder\file.tues -count 1 -wait

thanks!
