Today is Thursday and that means that we have passed HUMP DAY.
Do you know hump Day? It is Wednesday!! Why, you may be asking, is it called hump day? Well, Wednesday is the middle of the week and like a hump on a camel, the first part goes up and then it peaks and goes down. That is a HUMP! Wednesday is stuck right in the middle of the week – two days after the weekend and two days before the weekend.
Last week I asked you about the difference between
I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU.
I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU.
The difference is that the first one, using the present simple, expresses a fact and is used in business situations. The second one, using the present continuous, is my feeling and is personal. It is, therefore, used in a personal, and not a business, situation.
At the end of an email:
I look forward to our meeting on Thursday and I am looking forward to having drinks afterward.
