That Afternoon's Call... (People Do Talk).





A while back I got a call that went like this;

Her: Did you go for Tayo's wedding?

Me: Nope

Her: Have you seen the wedding pictures?

Me: No, why, are they on Facebook? What's up?

Her: I don't think so o! Hmmm, if you see her husband....

Me: Haaaa!!! He's hot?

Her: Hot ke? Kai. Tayo no try o!


Me: Seriously? How?

Her: The guy is not it at all. You know your gateman, that your gateman

Me: Ehen?

Her: Your gateman is finer than him!

Me: ahn ahn... Actually my gateman isn't that bad

Her: I know, your gateman is finer than him by farrrr. The guy looks... Fucking hell! He looks like a beggar

Me: really?

Her: if you see the shoes he wore, on his own wedding.... The shoes have finished chopping

Me: *laugh*

Her: Seriously. When *Tosin sent me the pictures I told her maybe he's just all these rich kids that don't have any sense of style or anything. But she said is a lie o! Rich ke? They said he doesn't have anything. Everybody is saying it's like he jazzed Tayo.

Me: Hia!

Her: it's like when I saw *Funmi's husband... I even thought that one was bad. Till I saw this one

Me: but there's nothing wrong with Funmi's husband na *genuinely confused*

Her: I know, but back then na... Funmi Williams! That's not the kind of person we imagined a whole Funmi Williams will end up with. But her husband is a king compared to Tayo's husband. Kai! I wish your BB is good I would have sent you his picture

Me: oh well...

Her: I honestly can't believe my eyes. I honestly think the guy must have jazzed her. She can't be that desperate to marry na that she decided to marry that one. No, Nwando you need to see him to understand.

Me: Na wa o!

I had an incoming call so I had to go. 

I won't lie I've gone on Facebook to check if Tayo has uploaded her wedding pictures. I can't believe her husband is as bad as they say he is. These are my friends from Queen's College and oh well... I really dunno what to say. 

When a guy talks to me about marriage I inadvertently imagine our pictures up on Facebook and my friend's expressions or reactions. Would it be, "Hmmm, her husband isn't bad at all" or "Jesos! What did she marrrrrry?". I always thought it was all in my head but with this phone call I can see that I haven't been delusional, people do chat crap. People talk!!!

My friend and informant is married as well, she's married to a fine guy but I'm sure even she knows that there's more to life than marrying a TDH guy. Ok o! My lips are sealed. I'm not sure what the purpose of this post is but... So now when I'm getting married I have one more thing to worry about; what will my friends say about my husband?



*Any Ex QC girl who asks me any question should not expect to get an answer.*

  4. Make I no lie, the only reason why I will consider what my Husband looks like is because of My KIDS LOOKS!!!
    No compromise please... I look at some kids & I want to flog their parents, like how dare U?

    Biko, even if we don't have all the money in my future home, Let my Kids be "awemazinly" cute, I will show them how to make money with their looks legally like I did... "probability"...

  5. Looks will not put diesel in the gen. The man who will hold your hand when you're ill May wear red trousers and blue shoes. All males are born with testicles but only men have balls. When you are faced with fine useless male and not so fine man, who knows what he was put on this earth for. That is when you will realize that looks isn't everything.

  6. People will talk. That's normal.

    Lord, forgive me. I caught myself wishing someone remained on a wheel chair after an almost life taking, coma keeping accident. I'm happy the person has recovered and he's now walking but I just *stupidly realized I might have liked it if he was on a wheel chair.

    By the way, how can one overcome jealousy???.....and obsession too????

  11. In the end, it's your happiness that matters and not satisfying your friends expectations of you nailing the finest bobo in town. For me, I didn't even notice that my hubby had beautiful brown eyes and permit me to say, a medium pointed nose until months into our relationship. And dear Ruth, I prayed my children (especially my daughter) got those features from him but it didn't happen. I might have the loveliest nails if I take my time to groom them but as good as they are, my children have my hubby's nails. :( I could go on but I'm sure you get the message. It doesn't work that way.

    1. I totally understand U Enjay, but it's better to be sure than sorry. If my kids don't take my features (which by God's grace is above average) they should take after their Dad's (which is why I should be with a man with nice features for their sake)...

      My Mom did same for Us, we are indebted for Life! I have the Most Good looking brothers!!!!

    2. I have seen beautiful couples with very ugly kids. I have also seen average-looking couples with beautiful children. The day I saw my sister-in-law's (my eldest brother's wife) parents, I was tempted to ask if she (my sis-in-law) was adopted. She's slim, tall (6 feet), light complexioned and very elegant - an ex-model. However, her dad is not by any means handsome, he's short in every sense of that word and her mother? Neither here nor there (fat, height around 5.5', no exceptional feature).

  12. Even if you marry the most handsome and happening boy, people will talk about you. You have to deal with it. Some people will say "how manage", if you marry a well to do guy who visibly spends his money on you, "ypu jazzed him". These things will always exist. There are people who said my husband was allergic to dark skinned women because he married me, and there are people who have said I married him because of his family wealth. When in actuality it is possible my father has more but is less well known. All this is on top of registry wedding. We havent done the trad or formal yet. My point is be secure in whatever your choice is, because even the people who you think are your friends will talk about your choice in a spouse and your actions. Only you and your God understand why you have chosen that person. To the people who think marrying an attractive partner guarantees good looking kids, you be surprised. My father is the less attractive of my parents and I am his carbon copy, wide nose and small eyes. I just inherited complexion from my mother. My brothers on the other hand look like fine arab specimens as they favor my mom looks wise and are slightly darker than me and on bad days my pictures come out very ugly. Babes used to be friends with me to get to my brothers. Point again is just pray for God to give you a partner with whom you can create a loving family and home. Finish.

  13. Truth is personally, a guy's looks can cause some sensation in me. I love guys slim, tall and dark. However, I have been around long enough to realize that a person's character can change one's view about them. You can be looking at a very handsome man in all ramifications but seeing a monster! Good character make people beautiful - from inside out. More so, let people talk because beauty itself is in the eyes of the beholder.

    1. "Good character makes people beautiful" I love that! my boo isn't the finest man out there.. heck when he started chasing me I was kind of pissed.. why is this lanky iroko looking for me when I'm not looking for him lol..got to know him and he has a peaceful and beautiful heart..treats me like a queen too :) .
      People will always have something to say, heck we all talk too. but it should not matter as long as your partners treat you right..thats all that count..

  14. I must say that marriage is a big deal depending your intent of getting into it. who doesn't want someone attractive? do u have ur inner peace when he is away from you? can u beat ur chest that he has ur heart?... personality and compatibility shd'nt be negotiated for looks. if a lot of our friends married to fine blokes wld be truthful then u wld know that over 80% of them are unsecured.

    by the way, these's no such thing as ugly, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. marriage is you and your partner dont jeopardise your happiness for friends.

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…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

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
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

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.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

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…

Shhhhhhh....

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.
