A Conversation With Wednesday



Wednesday: Good morning!

Me: Hey.

Wednesday: Are you going on a trip?

Me: What? No. What made you ask that?

Wednesday: Because you're carrying a bunch of bags. Under your eyes.

Me: Really? That's what your going with? Before I've even had coffee?

Wednesday: *Chuckles* Oh come on! It was funny.

Me: Oh yeah. Hysterical.

Wednesday: Maybe I'm trying to hard.

Me: What?

Wednesday: *Sighs* I just want you to like me.

Me: What do you mean? Everybody likes you. You're "Hump Day".

Wednesday: Oh, that's just great!

Me: It's true.

Wednesday: Here we go again! Another "hilarious" reference to "Hump Day". Ha ha ha - it's "Hump Day"!  Nothing like alluding to doing the "horizontal bop". Or "making the beast with two backs".

Me: Whoa! Hey! Geez!

Wednesday: *Sobs.* You know it's true! Let's make fun of the middle guy!

Me: *Awkwardly pats Wednesday on shoulder.* I don't think that's what it means.

Wednesday: You don't?

Me: I think people call it "Hump Day" because the week starts out rough. We are overwhelmed because of all the things that need to be done. But Wednesday. Wednesday is the summit. The highest point. Once we make it there, we feel a sense of accomplishment and relief, knowing the rest of the week will be easier because it is downhill.

Wednesday: *Sniffles.* You really think so?

Me: Absolutely.

Wednesday: *Grins.* You are pretty awesome.

Me: I know.

Wednesday: Let's go get you some coffee and unpack those bags!

Me: Seriously?

Wednesday: I'm not only the best part of the week but I'm also the funniest.

Me: Hilarious.
