Thoughts......On A .....Hump Day

Hump Day.......the origin....

We have used Wednesday.....or "Hump Day" as an inspirational tool to get us through the week and into the week-end.......

Week after week .....we've come up with unique images and thought provoking posts.

But just where did the term "Hump Day" originate?

Hard to to say........exactly........but .....with the help of have a few suggestions:

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

After hump day, the weekend gets closer.

(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.

Damn, I wish every day could be hump day!

(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)

(4) Hump actually refers to rounded protuberance on a camel's back, or as an abnormality on a person's back.........which is located in the centre
so there is a common sense behind it that even wednesday is in the middle of the week see example

This is old tradition or belief or thinking.....which is just related with one of the week day as well as hump

hump in the centre or middle approx
And wednesday in the middile of the
both in the centre

....Hump Day

(5) Wednesday is often referred to as "hump day" because of its position as the middle day of the work week. If the work week were a hill. Then Wednesday would be the crest. It is all down hill from there. (Whether the down hill ride is a coast or a descent into a swamp is left to the individual.)

I have a feeling ......we're no closer to understanding the true origin......but "Happy Hump Day!"......just the same.
