Hump Day

Today is “Hump Day” as Susan so kindly informed me (I think maybe I’ve finally met someone with a dirtier mind than me!). No, not like that, but I thought it was like that until I discovered it wasn’t but I still wish it was like that. It’s actually a vernacular term for Wednesday.

I never knew Wednesday was ubiquitously defined as Hump Day. I know about TGI Friday and the Sabbath, but Hump Day is new to me. Here’s a formal definition, here’s a more obscure one and here’s a plain fiendish one (which is actually like that which I first thought it was like and am quite glad it is that).

Hi Henno

Sorry, ek ken jou nie, maar jou blog lyk interessant. Hoe lank is jy nou al in Saigon?

Ek likes Hanoi baie meer as Saigon. Was jy al in Hoin Ann?

Goed gaan

Die laaste een is defnitief my gunsteling definisie ook. Hompdag - dit rol so lekker van die tong af.

everyone loves a good hump day - it always makes the rest of the week go by so much smoother!

Hey Maksideem - ek is gister nege maande hier, maar ek kom oormore terug SA toe vir Kersfees en dan weer Saigon toe in Jan. Ek was nog nie in Hoi An nie, maar ek beplan om vir Tet (laat Februarie) die mooi land 'n bietjie te toer!
