Allow me to help you through this hump day. Something “hump-worthy” if you will.
I play a little game on Wednesdays called “What’s going to wash the first half of this week away?” Because I don’t know about you, but I am fairly certain no one likes a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. Thursday, shit starts looking up. On Wednesday, you’ve hiked up your hill of a week and you look back thinking “There was a whole lot of hard work and bull back there, I am in a sour mood.”
This is when your ‘tude can go one of two ways, people. It determines the rest of your week, don’t underestimate the hump.
You can pout, order pizza, wear sweatpants with stains on them and get lost somewhere between halfway and 3/4 of the way down a pint of Americone Dream.
You can put on some sexy music, pour the wine, and “hump” your way into Thirsty Thursday, AMIRIGHT? I am talking about making a sexy dinner to start your week descent off right. You can’t glide into a Thirsty Thursday with a foul humor and stained sweatpants. No. You need meet it with your hump day best. rise to the occasion, if you will. (Ok, even I feel awkward about that one.)
And what is sexier than questionably inappropriate named pasta dishes? Nothing.
