Suddenly Single… Minded

Welcome to the Wild and Whimsical World of Internet Dating

Today is Kiss and Make Up Day – When is Viagra Day?

Viagra has it’s very own national holiday.

The little blue pill with life enhancing properties,

or promises, has a special day.

Today is National Kiss and Make Up Day – is there a connection?

The Top 10 Prescription Drugs List

In the United States, the Top Ten Prescription Drugs include Claritin, Lipitor, Prilosec, Amoxicillin and Prozac; 35 million people in 100 countries are on Prozac. You are probably wondering: are there actual National holidays for any of America’s Top Ten drugs? Don’t bother checking your calendar. There are no jolly celebrations or festivals for mundane prescription drugs, except, of course Viagra.  Yes, it’s true. Each March 27th somebody celebrates ‘Viagra Day,’  across America. And, seriously, what exactly does that mean? You decide. Then, riddle me this: who would possibly be behind a vigorous promotion of sildenafil citrate? That little old drug maker: Pfizer.

Interestingly enough, Pfizer also makes a bunch of the Top Ten Drugs – however, there is not a single national holiday, or festive marketing campaign, for Pfizer’s Lipitor or Celebrex. What’s up with that? Next time you are at, let’s say, happy hour, why not conduct a poll? Talk about an icebreaker.

Important or Impotent – You Decide

Now, you may think it’s ludicrous to celebrate a prescription drug with it’s own special day. Others may disagree. However, in America we seem to have a special day for everything.

August has a handful of quirky days to celebrate – including Left Handed Day.

Southpaws rejoice: Today is Left Handers Day

Just wait for Kiss and Make Up day.

Here are  s’more great August dates: 

August 30 –  National Marshmallow Day. You haven’t had a real marshmallow unless you’ve had  the amazing Recchiuti mallows. If you really want to kiss and make up, grab a yummy Recchiuti  S’mores kit and enjoy the last vestiges of a sizzling  summer. The S’mores are pretty seductive. Whatever you decide to celebrate – make someone happy.


Pills or not – I’m with Jimmy Durante: Make Someone Happy. Everyday.
