About This Thang
So what is Hump Day Spice? Well, it all started out because my team at work needed a pick-me-up, and I had free time on my hands.
In college there was a guy on my rowing team who used to tell jokes every day before practice to lighten the mood. So I decided to try that out for my team. Except instead of jokes, I wrote fun facts.
For almost a year, I tried different iterations, different content, different jokes. There was also a long hiatus where I had actual work to do and couldn't write. Then, one day, I had a lightbulb moment. I thought, "I have this whole directory of people I work with...I should just start randomly sending it to them."
So that's what I did.
Fast forward another 5 months, I've unsolicited 98 emails of various friends and co-workers, when I finally decided it was time to avoid a potential HR issue and move my newsletter from my work email to something greater.
And thus, humpdayspice.com was born. And here you are!
The newsletter is a work in progress, but it's the best part of my week. It challenges me to think more critically and pay attention to what's going on around me. And as of this writing, 105 people have willingly agreed to pay a small amount of attention to what I pay attention to. A victory is a victory.
For those 105 people across two continents that read my letter (thank you, Sam Ritholtz), thanks for putting up with my antics.
