What, you didn't know today was Doctors' Day? That's OK. Neither did I. I found out when I walked into the hospital this morning and saw a sign on a stand that said, "Happy Doctors' Day! Please enjoy a special treat in the Doctors' Lounge in gratitude for all you do for your patients!"
And sure enough, I walked into the lounge, and there was a little card table set up with granola bars and some other nosherei. But it's a little underwhelming. I mean, where's the marketing blitz? Why was there no sale at Target? No special Doctors' Day arrangements at FTD? Where are all my Hallmark cards?
I yearn for the day when Doctors' Day will be right up there with other important holidays like Sweetest Day and Boxing Day. Until then, I'll have to settle for cheap munchies and faux appreciation.
