A Sad Joke About Love & Marriage.

I hear it's an old one but I just saw it for the first time so it's new to me. And while it's actually very it's hilarious, I find it oh so sad. 



Read below:


There was a group of women gathered at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with your husband. The women were asked: 

'How many of you love your husbands?' 

All the women raised their hands. Then they were asked: 

'When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?' 

Some women answered today, some yesterday, some didn't remember.. The women were then told to take their cell phones and send the following text to their respective husbands: "I love you, sweetheart." 

Then the women were told to exchange phones and read the responding text messages. Here are some of the replies: 

1. Eh, mother of my children, are you sick?

2. What now? Did you crash the car again? 

3. I don't understand what you mean? 

4. What did you do now? I won't forgive you this time!!!  

5. ?!?  

6. Don't beat about the bush, just tell me how much you need?  

7. Am I dreaming?? 

8. If you don't tell me who this message is actually for, you will die today...!!!  

9. I asked you not to drink anymore!!  

And the best one:  
10. WHO IS THIS?

I'd like to believe that I'm not naive and I've seen enough to come to understand that marriage is no day dream, but is it really so bad that when you randomly tell your SO that you love them they become alarmed and suspicious? That's heartbreaking. 

At what point and why do the things that were light, fun and beautiful to do when a couple was dating become a chore during marriage?

  1. I first read this on BBM, late 2012 then I just smiled and discarded it, but reading it here again today has suddenly put me in a reflective mood. I am imagining a few married couples I know saying '' I love you'' to themselves and what their SO's responses would be.

  3. That 'WHO IS THIS' is really painful shaaaa. I like number Six though, it sounds like a man who plays a lot with his wife.

  4. I'v read this before somewhere but it still got me ROTFLMAO again. The "who is this" is an epic reply. No 4 and 8 is the monitoring spirit husband that sees a cheating scenario in everything.J

    1. Sorry that line is not in use at the moment. You'll still have to mail me for my phone number though. LOL @ "send impersonal email". Some people actually find it easier expressing themselves in writing than through talking, it's not always impersonal.

  7. I would be no 5

    At what point and why do the things that were light, fun and beautiful to do when a couple was dating become a chore during marriage?
    My answer - as soon as the kids start popping out like pop corn, very easy to switch attention at that point and it gets worse if the couple do not quickly realize it.

    1. Lol at popping out like pop corn......I tell you,I have just one baby and its hard sometimes...atyms le boo and moi wants to get down on it but that's the time my baby wants noodles or pancake or refuses to sleep..but if you are determined to make it work...its gon be better....#irepseptember 9##that naughty house wife

    2. lol @ Wale. Really, its easy to let things slide when the kids start coming because life gets in the way with kids, bills etc. But that's when you have to make an effort to stoke the fires and keep them burning. My husband loves road trips and before we got married, he could just spontaneously get up and say lets go. And I would go cos it was always lovely to just spend time together, just me and him. Fast forward 3 kids later, lets go!! I would drag my feet cos all he needs to do is make sure the car is good to go and pack. I have to make sure there's entertainment for the kids, make jollof rice for the road etc. So for me the spontaneity was gone. No more impromptu sex in the kitchen or living room cos one of the kids could walk in after a nightmare etc. Or getting funny in the car in a deserted spt cos the kids are there! I actually had to make an effort to go once in a while Because he enjoys it, and it shouldnt be only about what I like. Not to say the kids hamper us, but we have to be careful not to take each other for granted to the point of forgetting to say I love you. It should easily roll off the tongue, but not roll off without meaning t either just because thats how you end your phone conversations or texts. And that must be a joke. marriage isn't bad at all, really. Especially if you marry your friend. You have to be friends. OJ

  9. Lmao @10 chai iz nor funny oh. I can see how things can degenerate to that extent if the individuals involved allow things to go fallow

  10. Well...tell me you love me when we're alone or in the company of a small circle of friends and loved ones and I'll respond likewise. But if you try it in a place like Shoprite, where *gbegborun* eyes be forming like they're minding their business, my dear, that #5 reaction will be so me.

  13. Marriage isn't easy especially for the woman. These days, I barely have time to make my hair or pain my nails. And I used to be a Diva o. Chai, marriage has weakened me. My social life is zilch, to the unmarried women on this blog. Please have fun o, enjoy ya single hood, and if possible if u r close to getting married Start looking for a help, so dat wen d kids come, u will be ready with extra hands, above all, don't have more than 2 kids. Just one kid is a handful. My hubby wanted me to hv one, I dey form say, let's have 2 so they can be there for each other. The second process isn't easy.

    That's why u gats to marry ur friend, someone who is worth the wahala, dats the only thing keeping me sane. Clare

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!
