Wednesday is Hump Day. It's the middle of the work week so after Wednesday you're over the hump, the worst is over, it's all downhill from here.

Of course, if you're retired, Wednesday is Sunday, is Tuesday, is Friday, etc.

Thanks for the explanation, Andy.
Itīs just that "hump" has another meaning in the UK and I was a bit confused!

We had some of the leftover ham, last of the scalloped potatoes, shredded Brussels sprouts sauteed with bacon, and "seasoned" butter beans.

In our house, EVERY day is Saturday. Well, unless we have some sort of appointment. Then we have to actually pay attention.

Indeed it does. Someone I know, from the UK, used the term "We humped the furniture to the other room." That brought quite the, um, interesting visual. In North American English, it has a very different meaning as verb.
