Most Cringe-Worthy Oops! Moments.

Hey guys! I hope you had a beautiful day. Mine was fine, only made better by the mid-week service. Pastor Paul Adefarasin was absent today and he junior pastor stood in for him but boy, was he awesome! Nothing beats being able to laugh while learning and hearing God's word. 

And yes, I have a testimony!!!

So right in the row before me was one of my classmates from QC, Yeside. When I saw her I wasn't quite sure she was the one as I've not seen her since 2002 and the person I saw looked a bit different, naturally. But just as if she felt my eyes on her she turned back and the second she saw me she broke into a huge grin and waved excitedly. And that's my testimony; that twelve years later, with all the aging and weight gain someone from the past saw me and IMMEDIATELY recognized me. WOW! Y'all don't know how excited this makes me feel. Even I look at my old pictures and I cannot reconcile who I see in them with who I see in the mirror now. So Yay!

Anyhoooo, service ended and I thought I should go and get something to eat before heading home and the only place I was certain to get food from without having to wait too long was The Place. There was a queue but thankfully it wasn't too long. The place was crowded and the people around me were a bit too noisy and I just couldn't wait to get out of there so when I saw my friend Chuks with his female cousin I was more than grateful for a distraction. I screamed excitedly and rushed to give him a hug. On getting to him he nervously took a step back, and it was then I looked closer and realized that... I really need to stop taking my glasses off. He turned out to not be Chuks and "his female cousin" turned out to not be so pleased by my familiarity. I don't know which burnt more, the horror and confusion on their faces as they quickly moved back like I was going to the devour them, or having to face that crowd again after that public embarrassment. 

Guys, this was SO so so embarassing! I quickly apologized and exited the door behind them, waited several minutes and went back in the join the queue again. 

Well, just like other embarrassing moments, time heals all wounds, right? Yet there are those embarassing moments that we can never live down no matter how much time has gone by. We think about it and even though it happened five or ten years ago we still cringe and ask the ground to swallow us. 

What your worst Oops! moment?

(Hey it's midnight... LOL. Good night guys!)


  1. I once saw a close friend/classmate with another friend of his by the entrance of the school library.I said hello to my own friend and out of courtesy,I stretched my hand towards to the other guy(a yoruba boy like me); but he was having none of my "famzing". As a sharp Ijebu guy,na only me just use style take fold my fingers and withdrew my airborne hand to myself. The thing pain me but life must go on.

    1 of My most embarrassing moments was the 1st time I farted during my 1st date with my 1st major crush. U can imagine, no sound oh. *I blame it on the excitement of the date that made me unable to poo that morning after all the rubbish I ate the previous day*
    But oh boy, did it stink? I literally wanted to pass out. But I don't know if it was the choking smell or the look on the guys face!
    My 18years old self is still Sorry! *Shame no gree me date the niccur sef*
    If I could turn back the hands of time.
    I still walk in the opposite direction each time I run into him.

Anyway,my most embarrassing moment was when I had to hang out with a new found friend back then,he came with a cousin of his and in the course of laughing about the jokes he threw,COS d guy is really funny,I laughed hard and farted a loud fart,God it sounded like a bomb and d environment was quite,so they heard it,kai I felt like the ground should open and swallow me. I get plenty embarrassing moments shaaa.

  4. Off the top of my head, I had this moment that required me being a compere(last minute notification) and I also had to make a presentation. So in doing all these activities yours dearest was sweating like Xmas fowl. Armpit soaked. Through my shirt. Hair plastered to my face. Everywhere. There was nothing I could do, I just stoood it out trying not to catch the eyes of anyone especially my crush....arrrrgh. I can't even bring myself to see the video again, lailai.

  5. Mine was a long time ago tho.
    I had this pants I loved so much, I wore it too often it had become weak. I had a date and I wore it yet again...
    As I was about taking my seat I heard a loud KPRAAAAAAA! whaaaaaaaaaaat? that had better not be my pants.I felt the back of my pants with my hands; lo and behold, my sokoto don tia for back all my blackichan yansh dey receive fresh air.
    My forming reduced to 0/100.I said "sorry, did you come with a jacket? he said 'No why?
    I said 'my pants just gave way. he didn't bring a jacket and my top wasn't long enough to cover my bum.My saving Grace was a staff of the eatery's pashmina. After I found something to cover up I still felt so embarrassed even the food sef nor kuku gree pass my throat, my date was equally sorry for me.

    Another was when my heel came off while I was about crossing the road and GBAM!!!! I fell flat on the road thank God the oncoming vehicle wasn't on top speed.

    Another one was when my chicken flew out of my plate in an eatery onto strong chicken and fork&knife matter. that is why I prefer 'The Place's asun and rice. No stress.

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…
