Blue Monday 2023: it's a made-up day* but Mental Health is still Important

Blue Monday was made up by a company*. They got us all to believe that this date in January is the saddest day of the year, perhaps because they wanted to sell vacations.
Don't get me wrong, vacations are lovely, but Blue Monday has been dismissed as a load of garbagio and/or pseudoscience... same as Talk Like a Pirate Day. (There's no hard science behind that day either?! Come on!!)
Mental health is still important today, so if you're struggling with sadness, depression, anxiety, or any mental health issue, here are some places where you can get help today: *Please Share this with someone who might need the info.

the Pineapple Thing about Swinging *PG13

Scotty note: I am not a swinger. If you are one, that's none of my business but I would argue that you should have told me about the pineapple thing before now. ( https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMY1gYFYR/ ) @lindajeanw Oops no one told me 🍍🍍🍍 #notswingers #oops #pineapple #ididntknow #fy ♬ original sound - Jazzy Fizzle Good Lord, what if I accidentally wore some pineapple trunks to the waterslides or something?!  Wait, I love pineapple on my pizza... am I already a swinger and I just didn't know it?
