      Waiting to leave the table and getting a good hand often leads to unsavory situations, but the potential pay-out makes it worth it to wait for the blinds and only play AA KK.
      Unless you hold AA or KK the decision to play or not rests on how comfortable you are at the table. If you are at a table of chum whom you are confident you can outplay then a QQ is nice to raise-see flop-check/fold AK board or c-bet dry board. If your table has many TAGs or loose LAGs who often raise preflop you might want to stick to AA KK.
      In this case there is probably an equity calculation you can do to find out if it is profitable to shove.

      push it! limpraise doesnt have to be AA all the time ;) and then make a note

      if you feel uncomfortable risking a double stack you can fold, but imo a push is +EV

      Important!! : You dont risk your whole stack against UTG! And there is deadmoney!

      If he had AQ, then you didn't lose, you won. The outcome of this particular hand doesn't change that.
