Some say the term Hump Day was coined in 1965. In Frederic G. Cassidy’s Dictionary of American Regional English, Volume I, he says Hump Day was used by counselors at summer camp to mean Wednesday. I lived and worked at a summer camp and yes, we said that on Wednesdays. I don’t know about it being coined there. I’ve found other references that say it goes back to the 1940’s. No citations though. No matter where this term came from, it’s the official half-way mark in the workweek and the weekend is on the other side of that little hill.
I saw this the other day and thought it was funny. 🙂 Alas, I get no remuneration from Geico.

The Geico commercial has been on the tube for a month maybe more.LOL Di-a-pha-nous!!! A 50-cent word for the sensuous writer and reader.
Yes, I do like those 50-cent words. 🙂 I saw that camel and laughed out loud. I don’t watch much TV, so this was a new one for me. The woman who finally answers him was great.
There is a Discover card commercial thet is pretty good . Two African American ladies: one who calls customer service and the customer service rep who takes the call.
