Wednesday. For most people, Wednesday is considered to be the middle of the week, “hump day”. Once you get past that middle day, all you’ve got is two more work days ahead of you until the weekend. Weekend. is another word that, for most people, means Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday. However, for those of us who are fortunate enough to work on the summit, the work week is a little different, and sometimes challenging. Wednesday is either the beginning or the end of a week. Our “hump day” is Sunday. Wednesday takes on characteristics of either a typical Monday or Friday. For those who are upcoming, Wednesday is essentially Monday; the first and longest day of the week. This day is full of meetings, people packing and unpacking, and a general feeling of chaos. For those who are going down to the valley, it’s a Friday. All one wants to do is finish the work day so he can enjoy his or her weekend. A weekend for a summit dweller is a lot different than for a valley dweller. A weekend consists of six and a half days, which is definitely positive. After a long Wednesday, like most Mondays, one generally feels tired, worn out, and is left with a feeling of no great accomplishment. Up on the summit, we find that the best cure for the Wednesday Blues is a large meal consisting of fajitas, homemade salsa, chocolate chip cookies! If this comment is a little lame, remember, it is Wednesday.
