In the recent discussion of sabotage, the 7th day was mentioned, which made me think (yes, I do that from time to time) of the meaning of Wednesday, which is considered the middle of the week.
It turns out there are two roots, Woden's Day, which is the fourth day of the week; and Mittwokh, the middle of the work week. Which helps explain why sredA is Russian for Wednesday. It means "in the middle."
