Got something or someone eating away at your psyche, sucking the very life force outta your soul? Hate your boss, your bf, or your body? Finally realize you'll never get that boob job, that back pay, or that bitchin' babe? As it turns out, Friday, March 9 is the official Get Over It Day
, so proclaimed by Jeff Goldblatt, a 1999 graduate of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.
Goldblatt's motivation was simple. "GET OVER IT DAY� is based on the idea that EVERYONE has SOMETHING to get over. Strategically the exact midpoint between Valentine's Day and April Fool's Day, 'Get Over It Day' is the day to finally get over that ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend, those stressful school- or work-related issues, any fears, insecurities, embarrassing moments, bad relationships, etc. [Editor's Note: If you're not sure what YOU have to get over, just ask your friends.]"
While Goldblatt has been trying to promote the notion of Get Over It Day parties, a look at the current list of locations suggests it hasn't quite taken off. When last we checked, only 27 bars across the nation had jumped on the bandwagon, and none of them were in Ohio. -- Elaine T. Cicora
