Don't Ask Me For Those 5 Minutes Of Your Life Back.

I need to be a billionaire ASAP so I can afford to just lay on the sofa and watch the days pass by without a care in the world, without reminding myself that I need to get off the sofa and find ways to make me some money because I want my kids to attend some pretty expensive schools (if they school in Nigeria) and so that I can do whatever I want or whatever. Most days that's enough motivation to get me off sofa, today was not one of those days. 

I slept off really late last night, actually I didn't sleep off till about 3.30am. I'm usually a late sleeper but last night I was on the phone for hours having a very curiously interesting conversation with a friend who was trying to figure out ways around this abstinence thingy; So if we date we can kiss and touch but no... not the main thing? So if we date and I do it with someone else do you think you think you'll have a right to be upset? So if we date how long till we do the main thing? I spent hours listening to a young man trying to navigate the murky waters of a sexless relationship. I spent hours solely for my amusement and entertainment, of course pointing out the flaw in his thinking; saying you strongly desire a relationship when all you want is sex, would have been a waste of time. 

Anyhoo, we wrapped up the conversation and I finally got some sleep. A few hours later I got up to get ready for church, went to pick my friend up and we both headed out. Afterwards I dropped her off, came back home, got on the sofa and passed out till about 6pm. I woke up and I remember vaguely remembering I have a blog so I picked my ipad up but immediately a wave of indifference flooded over me and I was like I'm so not into this today. I dropped the ipad, picked up my phone and asked if *Mimi felt like ice cream. It was still tentative for me, plus my sofa never felt so good. But Mimi's enthusiasm got me off my butt. I got dressed, went to pick her up and off we went. 

Then something occurred to me; I'd exceeded my budget for the week. Yes people, I'm trying to live within a budget and save more! Remember those children of mine have to go to expensive schools... So I called *Fred, knew he would be at his regularly spot in VI, told him I wanted to have dinner there and he asked me to come over. They do some really nice Italian food at the spot but that's not what I was there for, so I told Fred; I don't want food, just give me money, the cash equivalent (and some). I told him that my friend and I want to go some place and I've got no money to spend. Fred looked at the wristwatch on my wrist, Louis Vuitton bag I was holding and the jewelry I had on. Big girl like you; no money? He scoffed. (No need to tell him that everything I had on all belong to my sister who's not in town at the moment, so I'm in full borrow-pose mode. Shhhhhhhh). Well long story short, he wasn't with any cash or his token so he couldn't do an online transfer. He suggested we do an 'IOU'; I'll spend my money tonight and he'll refund me tomorrow. I know Fred's word is his bond so I hugged him and left. 

Mimi I are headed to Cold Stone and I had my first ice cream in months. IT WAS NOT WORTH IT! Ice cream is supposed to make you feel happy. This one was just blehhhh. It made me feel sick and sad. That could have been guilt, but then again it could have been the fact that that was actually my breakfast...

Well I'm home now and back on the sofa. I know I'll be up for hours seeing as I spent the better part of the day sleeping. I'm still in that 'I'm so not into this today' mood but err, if that was how life was then I'd spend all day laying on the sofa looking at the ceiling, because I've already got billions and need not worry about my kids education. But unfortunately, that's not how life is. 

So I had to get off my butt, get my ipad and type something out, even though I did not want to. Because that's life; inconveniencing yourself today for that which you want tomorrow. 

And oh, if you read this through I already warned you; I cannot give you those 5 minutes of your life back. 



  1. If you are a billionaire, you definitely wouldn't be lying on the sofa, you'll have so many other cares. But your husband was the money man you probably won't have any care

  2. Well the richer you are, the busier you become just have that at the back of your mind, when you get yo this level you are talking sbout , you won't have time to lie on the sofa.that's was wife of multimillionaire's face, a husband that's never home

  3. I couldn't help laughing, because sometimes I get the blues, but mind you, the more money one has, the more problem and expenses that would come.

    asdflkjhasdflkjhasdflkjhasdflkjhasdflkkjasdflkkh. ..
    wasted ur tym 2

  5. Who needs the five minutes back anyways? There's always something enjoyable about each post...I got a good laugh with this especially the "full borrow-pose mode".

  6. Thelma am not praying for u to be a billionaire, am praying a good man ll sweep u off ur feet, and give u the kind of love u deserve. To love n be loved makes life more meaningful and so beautiful that u hardly even worry about money. Have a great and fulfilling week everyone.

    1. Ifunanya, where's our TT BVs asoebi? Make u no joke with person oh! #draggingMyEars #ouch!

      T, thanks for those 5minutes. Though I read in 3. LOL
      When u become a billionaire, kindly make me ur P.A. As much as I love being around money, I don't wanna have so much. Just a Few millions will be luxury for me. MY life, MY opinion, MY goals.

      Have a great day U'all... xoxo

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!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
