Tomorrow is February 14th, which means that it is Single Appreciation Day or SAD—not to be confused with Seasonal Affective Disorder. SAD is the time to celebrate your singleness regardless of any vitamin D deficiencies. So here are a few things that you can do to ensure that you have a happy SAD.
1. Make it Facebook Official
Change your relationship status from single…to single. Or, if as in my case, you are currently in a "relationship" with a platonic friend, change it from sister-wife to single. You should also change your profile picture to something that involves a mirror or you hugging yourself from behind.
2. Go "Shopping"
Go to CVS and calculate the cost of the chocolates, singing-cards, and general hygiene products that you would have had to buy if you actually had a Valentine. Depending on how active your sweat glands are, you may have saved as much as 20 dollars! Congratulate yourself—your singleness has made you fiscally responsible.
3. Treat Yourself
Take that money that you would have spent on deodorant and stimulate the economy by taking yourself to a nice restaurant. Proudly ask the hostess for a table for one and a kids' menu so that you can play tic-tac-toe and write haikus to yourself. Don't forget that "forever alone" has five syllables!
4. Ink it Up
Always wanted a tattoo but never knew whose name to permanently ink on your body? Or maybe you just want another excuse to visit the cute tattoo artist in the Garage? Today is the perfect way to celebrate your independence by tattooing your own name on your arm, chest or inner lip. Bonus points if you can figure out how to make your name dance.
