I have a website I like to visit from time to time. It’s got tons of peculiar holidays–reasons to smile and celebrate nothing or reminders about fascinating things. It can be fun to find wacky things to do with the kids or reasons to chuckle. Any idea what we get to celebrate on February 15? It’s Singles Awareness Day.
Are you kidding me? If you are single and you made it to through February 14, you are VERY aware you are single. Everywhere you go there are decorations, fattening treats, decapitated garden clippings, and TWO-for-one specials making you acutely aware that you are single. And, they are all telling you that really, this time of year, you should not be. Totally funny/not funny.
And don’t get me started on marketing. I pretty much need to take out a restraining order on eHarmony or Christian Mingle for their ad campaigns this time of year on TV and Facebook. I’m glad my kids haven’t seen me when an ad for that over-50 dating site comes on AGAIN. It’s not pretty to see your mom yelling at the television, “I’M NOT THAT OLD YET!”
