A letter to Aunt Agony on Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2005 at 4:17 am 24 comments

Dear Aunt Agony,

I’m feeling utterly miserable today as it is Valentine’s Day. This is the eight straight year that I’m spending it alone since my boyfriend left me for another guy. This whole Valentine thingy irritates me to no end. The sight of lovey dovey couples whispering sweet nothing to each other while walking down the streets make my blood boils to 240 Fahrenheit and still rising. The smell of roses everywhere I turn make me feel like shredding them to bits with my nicely sharpened manicure nails. Sometimes I have half a mind of grabbing one of those women totally smitten in love by the hair and giving her two tight slaps because I’m so fill with envy and jealousy. If Saint Valentine is alive today, I will skin him alive, drive a steel rod up his ass and through his mouth, brush him with Da Hua barbecue sauce and roast him slowly over a hot sizzling fire and share the finished products with fellow Valentine’s haters. Does Aunt Agony hates Valentine’s Day by any chance?

Yours Sincerely

Dear Maria,

Yes, I totally feel your pain. I really do. I hate Valentine’s Day too. Every Valentine’s, scores of men and fancy cars will be queuing right outside my condominium hoping to snag a date with me, thus causing the notorious traffic jam along Scotts road often seen on TV. I will be bombarded with complaints by neighbors and the traffic police, with threats to charge and sue me. My answering machine will almost always go bust due to overwhelming messages requesting for a date. Every where I go, men will be holding up their placards proclaiming their love and admiration for me, thereby embarrassing me further. Because of all these, I become the target of hatred of every woman in Singapore every 14th of Feb. Not that it only happen once in a while, but the situation get extremely worse on Valentine’s Day. Even as I’m typing this, bouquets of flowers are being delivered to my apartment at the rate of one every 5 minutes. As much as my apartment is posh and spacious, there’s a limit to how much flowers it can accommodate. You know, sometimes in the middle of the night, I will sit alone in my room, cry and lament why me. Why can’t they leave me alone? What is it about me that men can’t get enough of? What is so desirable about me that cause men to queue outside for hours under the hot sun just to catch a glimpse of me? This whole Valentines thingy is causing me much stress and traumas. I simply can’t get any work done because my routine will be abruptly disrupted on this day. Dear Maria, I share your anguish and despair and I hope through this letter, you will realize that there are people worst off than you on Valentines Day – example, being yours truly- and I hope you can find the courage and strength to go through this treacherous period.

Yours Sincerely
Aunt Agony
