Hump Day?

I am reading my emails as I get the kids ready for school and here is what I got from my local news channel.

Nevermind the weather. I never even pay attention to these emails. I have no idea why I signed up in the first place. Most weather forecasters are liars.

Marching on...How long has Wednesday been known as Hump Day?

This is a news flash to me, no pun intended. I consider myself educated and well cultured. How is it then that I've never, ever known Wednesday to be called "hump day". Have I been sleeping under a rock all these years?

I actually emailed The Husband to tell him that someone at WTMJ really needs to start checking for typos. He laughed at me and informed me that it wasn't a typo. Apparently, I'm just the naive idiot of the day.

Uh. I guess it's true. You learn something new every day.
