Did you know that the Dog Days of Summer* run from July 3 to August 11?
And that July 22 is exactly midway between those two dates?
Which makes today the Hump Day of the Dog Days of Summer.
Just something to think about.
*”The dog days or dog days of summer are the hot, sultry days of summer. They were historically the period following the heliacal rising of the star Sirius, which Greek and Roman astrology connected with heat, drought, sudden thunderstorms, lethargy, fever, mad dogs, and bad luck. They are now taken to be the hottest, most uncomfortable part of summer in the Northern Hemisphere.” (From Wikipedia, of course.)
