Singles Awareness Day

Sarah: "Mam, do you know what day it is today?"

Me: "Yes, it's Saturday"

Sarah: "No, but what day is it"

Me: "The Fourteenth February"

Sarah: "No. Try again"

Me: "It's Valentine's Day"

Sarah: "No, it's Singles Awareness Day"

Me: "What? Who? When? Where? How? Why? Say again...?"

Sarah: "It's national Singles Awareness Day. Fancy that, they declare the Singles Awareness Day on Valentine's Day"

Me: "What are you supposed to do on Singles Awareness Day?"

Sarah: "I'm not sure. Maybe feel sorry for the singles ...."

Me: Sigh....

Sarah: " I think Valentine's day sucks. Usually, couples are happy. They have every day together. They're happy they're together. Why do they have to have a day for couples? I think they should get rid of Valentine's Day. It's people like me - the sad singles they should celebrate".

Me: "Yeah. Ban Valentines day"

Sarah: "Get rid of it!"

Me: "Shoot the cupid!"

Sarah: "Yeah..."
