Hump Day

Have you heard of "Hump Day"?

I am following a couple of Mommy bloggers in IG (mymomfriday and gojackiego) and saw them wishing their followers a "Happy Hump Day".  "Hump" has different meanings, it can mean the fleshy part found at the back of the camel and it can also refer to something risque, haha!

"Hump Day" as defined by Urban Dictionary means . . .
The middle of a work week (Wednesday); used in the context of climbing a proverbial hill to get through a tough week.

To explain further, I got this from wiseGEEK
"Hump day" refers to the idea that a week, especially a work week, is like a hill. Monday and Tuesday are days when a person "climbs" up, since they are the beginning or start of a traditional work week. At the end of Wednesday, the worker has reached the pinnacle of the week, and work on Thursday and Friday represents climbing back down toward the weekend.
This image refers specifically to that middle of the week, where a worker reaches the crest of the uphill journey and begins to pace downward toward the end of the week. Someone with a tedious job or who works especially hard can find it comforting to reach "hump day." At that point, the weekend does not seem so far off as when he or she started work on Monday.

Something to add to my vocabulary!  I hope you learned something today too! =)

So, how was your Hump Day?
