Valentine's Day Blues
That dreaded day is approaching. The day of lovers, the day to celebrate love. Most importantly, though, it is the day to increase prices of flowers and chocolates for no good reasons. I can smell it, sense it, see it everywhere. There's no escaping this. Going to a supermarket and there they are, roses and chocolates "on sales". Turning on the TV and the news coverage is all about the top 10 romantic things to do on Valentine's. Even at my usual restaurant, there's a big poster advertising a special candle-lit dinner for two on Valentine's night. What about those who are not in love? What about the ones who don't have lovers? Are we supposed to, at least for this week, hide in our home and blame ourselves for this shortcoming? It appears so. Don't even think about going out this weekend if you are single! At least, that's the vibe I've been getting. I could only imagine the horror that one would face if he or she chooses not to adhere to this warning. It's the night of the living dead out there, folks. I, for one, don't have enough strength to fight the hey-look-at-that-loser-who's-all-by-himself stare. So, I am going to do myself a favor and stay hidden in the darkest corner of my room with lights turned off. That way, I could just peacefully drift away into the abyss of self-pity and sorrow. Cheers to Valentine's Day!
