I first heard the expression “hump day” on twitter.
Although I guess most people hearing it for the first time will assume a more risqué meaning, it is in fact a reference to Wednesday and the fact that it is the middle of the working week – you have to get over the hump to go down the other side, to the weekend.
A while ago I decided that it would be good to allocate one day a week to catch up on the things that I was procrastinating about, the things on my “too difficult” pile. We all have those I guess?
Wednesday, being the middle of the working week seemed to be a good day for this. So HUMP day has another meaning for me – “Hilary yoU Mustn’t Procrastinate!” I know, daft, but we all need to have a bit of “daft” to brighten up our week, don’t we?
