My Top 5 *Speechless* Moments.

Although I'm not much of a talker it's not often I'm left speechless. But there've been a few moments that someone did or said sh*t and I was literally left silent, stunned, speechless. I'll share some with you:

Today's Wedding. 2 speechless moments. 
#Speechless 1. One of my all time worst nightmares: I sat quietly in my seat, 'pressing' a phone, minding my business when the lady came to me. "Beautiful aunty please come and stand with the couple and watch them as they cut the cake and tell us what you observed". #Speechless
      Aaaargh! I've always prayed this never happens to me. But I got up and did just that. When the couple started cutting the cake something went wrong with some wiring and they had to pause for a few minutes. Here's the true version of what I observed:
The bride was cranky all through, in fact since they danced in, no he danced in and she walked in, she's had a look on her face like they forced her to be here. Now cutting the cake, she actually uttered the words "Oooooh, let us cut this thing and get it over with abeg". "I'm cutting it o, I don't know about you". While the groom tried to persuade her with a smile both frozen and plastic.
What I said:
(The usual BS). What I observed is a couple that symbolizes love and togetherness, and it was obvious just the way they both worked as one to cut this cake. All I saw was unity, they stand as one. 

#Speechless 2: I sat with my nephews while my sister went to mingle and some guy came over to chat. While giving him my number an older man came and said "Why is a married woman like you sharing her number?" #speechless. (Maybe because the first thing that flashed through my mind was "the bloods we are shiarin... Dia is god oooo") 

#Speechless 3: my friend is from a wealthy home, her dad is with the Federal government and is freaking rich. One day I accompanied her to see him at his duplex at the Oriental Hotel where he was with his wife and some guests. I knew her mum very well but daddy is very busy so we've met on very few occasions, therefore he probably couldn't remember me.
My friend: daddy, this is my friend, Nwando
Me: good afternoon sir
Daddy: good afternoon. Who is your father?
Me: #speechless
A very awkward silence followed and her mum came to the rescue by mumbling some niceties and changing the topic. 

#Speechless 4: My Ex; Nnamdi who I was so terribly in love with and who was even more in love with me, and also very protective of me; his priceless jewel, suddenly said one fateful afternoon seven months into our relationship; "let's see other people. I want to sleep with other people. You're free to do the same". Me.... #Speechless

#Speechless 5: A few weeks later at about 2am Nnamdi calls me sounding super turned on, talking breathlessly. " baby... Baby she's .. She's f......." Bottom line is Nnamdi actually went ahead to sleep with someone else and called me while it going on with the skank, gave her the phone to talk to me, she actually introduced herself as Chi something or the other and then they went back to panting and I held my phone #SPEECHLESS
       I held on for a while, soon he said she was driving him crazy, he'll talk to me later, then he hung up. I sat in bed. Called bestie and told her what just happened and she listened to me cry for an hour or so (free midnight call). Eventually I had to let her get back to sleep but I was up till day light. Nnamdi was/is the best I've had, how could that have happened? Where on earth do I find these FOOLS?! Needless to say that ended the "relationship". 

So hey! Those are some of my #Speechless moments. 
I'm simply dying to hear yours!

@ today's wedding, I just couldn't understand it. The groom was super excited but the bride was frowning all through, like she was forced to be there. Also the groom is Igbo while the bride is Yoruba but the entire wedding was Yoruba; the food, the music, the prayers, the speeches, the MC's jokes, the dressing even. I couldn't really understand it. Shouldn't they have struck a balance or something? Everyone around me noticed these two things; the bored/disinterested/irritated bride and the wholly Yoruba wedding with an Igbo groom. 


  1. Chei Thelma, I am speechless on ur behalf for #Speechless 5. That guy really wanted u out of his life. He was really piled up with shit and freakingly childish.

    1. Yeah, maybe, maybe not. Nnamdi is a pervert and he doesn't think there should be a division between his sick fantasies and love. eg, while he was doing that he still called to say I love you bla bla bla, the ironic thing is he actually meant it. That more or less ended the relationship for me although we're still friends. He's married now and still does this, and he
      encourages the Mrs to do her own things too... And he wants to hear all the nitty gritty ... It's all too sick to talk about on this blog in detail so....

  2. Kai. I Knew there was No way T will stay away from this blog till Sunday. So I kept refreshing. It paid off. New Post! #Jiggles

    1st, Welldone for lying about that couple oh! Pretty big liar (Lovely outfit U had on)... That marriage no go easy oh. *Make I think my own biko*

    As for Nnamdi, Reading about him just made me speechless!

    1 of My very often speechless moment is when a guy walks up to me & says this: "O baby sup? Can we relate?" I literally become DUMB!

    T, in this PH, na wetin 80% of the guys dey use chyke babes. #Sobs

  3. That nnamdi of a guy na big agbaya,he need Boris for him ass,big orue.what actual fuck.what an insult.thelma is not all nonsense u should,u should b able to call him and sound serious warning to him.

  4. Hahaha!
    Speechless 1-4 cracked me up totally but 5 just sorta pissed me off, to be honest.
    Sorry you had to experience that love.

  5. This comment has been removed by the author.

  6. What d actual fuck,thelma u shouldn't take nonsense from any asshole,u should av call him lerra and sound serious warning to d heeediot.

    1. There was no need for that. That night I knew it was over, it's not every relationship that someone fights for.

    2. Lmaoo. Thelma now I c y they say Lawyers r liars,smh @ how u lied bou what u observed during the cake cutting, hmmm for number 3 biko that's scary;r there still parents like that? (Imagine if that was ur boyfriend's dad), then as for Nnamdi ahhhhh I am almost tempted 2 say u made it up mehn babe I thot I had experienced shit in the hands of guys but damn gurllllllll u shud win an award, again r there still guys like that? Tufiakwa! Hmmm as for the bride, all I can say is I feel sorry for her husband already. Poor nigga. And as for the yoruba wedding, in a way, I'm not really totally surprised like that, afterall most guys don't rili wna b involved in the wedding planning n u know how ppl generally say its the bride's "day"? Exactly. Especially if the Bride's family paid for everything (which used to be the norm back then). To me tho, I think the bride is spoilt. Like seriusly, who walksssss into the wedding reception??? That wud hv been painful to watch.

    3. Keke you may be right about the wedding planning/preparation. I hadn't thought about that. Babes I've had some pretty made up-sounding experiences. The day I write about Nnamdi and the experiences with him I may need to shut the blog down. I've got tons of stories to share but my friends think I already share too much as it is. Just believe me when I say the world is filled with sick people. It's one thing to have fetishes and sexual fantasies, it's another thing to actually act out all these fantasies no matter how sick or extreme. Nnamdi believes fantasies should all be made reality.

    4. Awwww I get where ur frnds r coming 4rm tho, I guess they just want u to b careful with wot u put out there. Hmmmm guys like Nnamdi tho, I am thankful on ur behalf for the bullet u dodged. Ur experiences have only ended up making u the beautiful person u r today.

  7. Thelma,the days leading to weddings are usually stressful especially for the bride,I was ready to call off my wedding few days to it,even wished I was kidnapped. I know a number of ladies who had the same thoughts

  8. I remember wen my ex-hubby's mum told me she had a revelation that i ve a spiritual husband and dt he ll attack her son, so therefore i needed deliverance. #speechless. Walking away from those people have been the best decision i ve taken in life so far.

    1. Please we need to chat. Can you mail me or send me your email addy?

  9. @#1: call me weird but I'm just trying to imagine what would have happened if you had said what you witnessed??? Any thoughts???? lol

    At Nnamdi -#5....are there really people like that?

    my speechless moment was when an ex told me he wasn't sure about us 3 weeks after giving me an engagement ring....after my shock and when I had energy to respond...he said he knew I'd wanted it (we had dated for almost 4 yrs)....lmao! happily married now....and thanking God that happened! so sometimes something good can come out of being speehless..hehehhehe!

  10. Single and kicking it...been talking to this guy who loves to talk a lot of shit.."ohh I am good in bed, I treat my lady like a queen, my ex used to call me mandigo, I bet I can make you squirt". So we finally did sleep together, yea he ate me up like I had maple syrup spewing out of my vagina which felt really good but uhm his penis was nothing to write home about.. i mean I was speechless when he kept on asking me if I liked it hard and if he was hitting the right spots.. I started laughing (thinking about it now.. that must have been embarrassing)...We haven't spoken since :( .

  11. *laughing soo hard @anon 5:49am that was some action gurl! Nice one T. (one of your numerous anonymous) Joy

  12. @Thelma trust me Nnamdi was a playboy.Ur experiences have only ended up making u the beautiful person u r today.

  13. Only speechless moment I can recall is ''right now'' after reading your post and that of anon 5:49. On a serious note, when my eldest first male cousin told me,''henceforth whenever one of you is driving, the front seat should be left vacant for me, I can't be sitting at the back like I begged for a ride in your car'' His youngest sis was driving my car that day while I sat beside her.

  14. lmaooooo!!!!! I haven't even finished reading the entire article but speechless 1 got me laughing so hard........cutting the cake n saying what you crap. I HATE that part of weddings and am so sure it wont happen at mine, don't need nobody telling me crap, BS n falsies. who even invented that thing sef? rme

    1. I know, right! So annoying. Worst part was I don't even know the couple personally, I tagged along. And they had this look on their faces like 'who come be dis one?'. LOL.

  15. I stopped to buy razor blades from a mallam in ph, one man standing der said, no, don't get these ones, they would cut u, buy those ones wt handles, they're safer. And then, asked d mallam to bring it, mallam didn't have it. All d while, I was imagining a blade with a non sharp side as a handle or something, but the next thing I heard as I was walking away wt my pack of blades was, it's better u get get the ones with the handle, easier to shave with, and proceeded to demonstrate shaving pubic and armpit hairs! Apparently, he was talking of a shaving stick! Me: speechless!!!!!!

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
