Humping the 60 Blog

Wednesday is regarded as the midpoint of a typical working week.  It’s hump day and perhaps the toughest day of the week for you.  Wednesday is hump day, Thursday is the unofficial beginning of the weekend.

It’s Wednesday.  Hump Day.  The middle of the work week.  It’s been defined as the day of maximum hope that maybe, you might make it out of this week alive.  “A particularly good hump day can last you the rest of the week, and by Doomsday morning (Monday), you survive by anticipating hump day.  Nothing goes wrong on hump day.

The Urban Dictionary tells us that most other days can be defined by hump day.  Tuesday is the day before hump day.  Thursday is one day after hump day.  Except Friday is Woo-hoo, Freedom Day! Saturday is Mostly Hungover Day, and Sunday is Pre-Doom Day.

 

The name is derived from the Old English Wōdnesdæg meaning Wooden’s Day, and Middle English Wednesdei, “day of Wodanaz” (Wikipedia).  In Latin, Wednesday translates to “day of Mercury.”  Also known by the slang term, “Hump Day” meaning by the end of the day you have successfully made it over the hump and are on the down slide to the weekend.

But really, when it comes down to it, Wednesday is just being Wednesday. It’s the middle child of the week. Wednesday has been known to be unpredictable and occasionally makes people violently insane. However, Wednesday has a bright future, as we now look at it as a landmark of the work week that we can’t wait to reach.

For me, my formula is:  Hump day + Thursday = Pay Day.  Bring it on!

  1. Wednesday…hump day. Dale has completely different ideas on what hump day is. But do you remember that commercial…oh what company was it, with the camel walking through the office…DO YOU KNOW WHAT DAY IT IS? LOL Some insurance company I think. My favorite day happens to be Thursday. Everything good happens on Thursday.
