"Get Over It Day was created by Atlanta entrepreneur Jeff Goldblatt, he chose March 9 because it is halfway between Valentine's Day and April Fools' Day. It's a day to take past hurt, humiliation or disappointments and just "Get Over It!"
Margie: Lawsy me, folks, here's a day named for Edna. My sister never gets over anything. Never!
If you don't believe me then just ask Edna what happened when she was 10 years old. Poor Grandma told Edna there was no Tooth Fairy and Edna hit the roof. She's prone to do that.
Edna: Unlike my snotty sister, I'm not going to go digging up the past and telling tales on folks. She's got plenty to get over in the here and now. If I hear her whine and complain one more time about how she thinks I never do any work around here, well...she'll really see me hit the roof then.
Margie: Edna, you know I do all the work and that's why you lie on me. Well, you can get over it. Today and every day. Why don't you go to your room and play Time Out?
Edna: You know what, you old goat? Why don't YOU get over it? I swan, you're not happy unless you start the day with some imagined complaint or another.
I'll give you a time out all right; come here Margie, I've got a nice knuckle sandwich for you.
Margie: And I've got nice grits you can kiss.
