Aaarg! Valentine is here again. It feels like it was just yesterday when Kamaa and I were head over heels for each other. Cat chasing mouse was our game. I was the envy of all the other house helps. Well, until all hell broke loose and I had to literally run for my life to Mama Mtoto’s house.
This year, it’s different. I’d like to say it will be a more chilled Valentine, but between me and you, it will be lonely. It doesn’t help much that my employer’s husband is flying in just for Valentine. Why does a single day of public display of attention (PDA) make me want to throw up? How did I get here?
I used to be the SI unit of a good lover. I stumbled upon a bouquet of flowers when I was cleaning, with a card in it. The message on the card alone made me cringe. It read : “Love will find a way through paths where wolves fear to prey.” What kind of gibberish is that?
I have been with Mama Mtoto for over a year now; during which she has never received any flowers or cards. You don’t have to wait until Valentine’s Day to show someone how much they mean to you. Me, I shower people with love everyday of their lives as long as they deserve it. Don’t get me wrong, I love that we are keen on celebrating love, but shouldn’t we always do so?
That being said, I low key hope I get chocolate and flowers from someone. If it turns out I do get a Valentine’s date, I take back every negative statement I made about Valentine’s Day.
