The mystery to this word, Wednesday, is this: it is not pronounced how it is spelled.

Everybody in the world pronounces it:

Wensday.

And I've scratching my head trying to figure out the origin of how this word came to be pronounced this way. This is not how it's spelled.

This is something I've been wondering about for years, and I simply don't know.

So I pronounce it like it's spelled, which would be the proper way to pronounce it, because that's how it spelled, not Wensday..

And it annoys people all to heck because everybody thinks, wrongly, that it must be pronounced Wensday.

Maybe we should petition the government to have the word changed to how people pronounce it.

Most people I hear in the Midwest pronounce it "Wendsday".
