Hump Day

One of my favourite books, if you can call it that, is the Dictionary! It's hard to kick the habit from those English class days. LOL

Anyway, found something interesting from the Urban Dictionary. For the uninitiated, the Urban Dictionary is a slang dictionary with definitions you and I can identify with, sort of. The words I stumbled upon applies to today, Wednesday. Wednesday is also known as Hump Day, nothing to do with the humping dog, of course.

And I quote from the Urban Dictionary:

1. Hump Day - The middle of a work week (Wednesday); used in the context of climbing a proverbial hill to get through a tough week.

2. Wednesday, the middle of the week, implying that you have to get "over the hump" before you can anticipate the weekend. The term was not originally intended to carry a second, more risque meaning.

3. Wednesday, or the hump of the week
The absolute BEST day of the week, 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 Doomday morning (Monday) you survive by anticipating hump day. Nothing goes wrong on hump day.

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 WOOOH!!! FREEDOM!!! Day, Saturday is Mostly Hungover day, and Sunday is PreDoom day.

Hump day has nothing to do with sex. Unless one wants it to. I like to declare the existence of hump day just to see people's faces. Usually being conservative and all.

"Do you know what the best thing about Tuesdays are? Its the day before Hump Day!"
"What's hump day?"
"It's the hump of the week!!"
(they all shake their heads in pity)

Oh, by the way, today is the 7th day of the new Lunar year and it's known as Man's Birthday, as in every human's day of birth. So, Happy Birthday!


  1. Haha, yes, Hump Day! Very humpy dumpy! No, no, Thursday is the day when I feel all is not lost! The Light at the end of the tunnel is discernible, finally!

    Happy Birthday, HappySurfer!!!

  2. I wish every humpy dumpy day is a holiday. Then, there won't be any hump to contend with. *sigh*
