My!! Is it that day already??

Well, here it is again..Wednesday..just when you least expect it sidles up beside you and tweaks you. Strange day is wednesday..Wednesday is sometimes referred to as “hump day” in American Englishslang. The workweek is a conceived as a hill with midweek representing the highest point. 

A song titled “Wednesday’s Song” is on the 2004 album Shadows Collide with People by John Frusciante, “Wednesday” is the title of a song on musician Tori Amos‘ “Scarlet’s Walk” album.

Sheffield Wednesday Football Club are a professional football club based in Sheffield, Yorkshire, England.

In the folk rhyme, “Wednesday’s child is full of woe”. In another rhyme reciting the days of the week, Solomon Grundy was ‘Married on Wednesday.’ In Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, the disagreeable nature of the weather is attributed to it being “Winds-Day” (a play on “Wednesday”). In Richard Brautigan‘s In Watermelon Sugar Wednesday is the day when the sun shines grey.

    Thank you – for explaining what hump day was. I’d seen it all over SL but naively imagined it was a day when people enjoyed their conjugal rights. Or, basically, just obeyed the command to “go forth and multiply but only on certain days of the week”. That was it, wasn’t it?
