Why be SAD?

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You're on your own. And you know what you know.
You are the guy who'll decide where to go."
~ Dr. Seuss

Three Dog Night was wrong.

One is not the loneliest number…

Thanks to Dustin Banks, a Mississippi State University student who didn't have a date for the Valentine’s Day Dance.

He didn't get mad about his Facebook relationship status –

He got creative!

Mr. Banks declared that the world needed a new holiday – one for folks just like him.

And so began Singles Awareness Day.

In case you are unaware, it’s a day to celebrate –

  • Serving Lucky Charms for dinner without somebody griping about it
  • Ditto for that pile of workout clothes behind the bathroom door
  • A life free of in-laws and toilet seat issues

So if you’re single, let me be the first to wish you a super-fabulous day!

But SAD?

You guys are in serious need of a better acronym.

PROMPT: What new holiday would you create? How would it be celebrated? And while your creative wheels are turning – please rescue those singles from their miserable abbreviation.


  1. Amen on the life free of in-laws. Losing the MIL is one of the greatest blessings amidst the trauma I've suffered.

    1. I'm so sorry to hear of the trauma, Angi, but I'm glad you've come out on the other side far enough to see some blessings. Be strong -- write on!
