This, That & The Changes We Make For Love & Lust.

So here are a compilation of things...

The first is that I am officially OLD. You know you're getting old when you think of the weekend or a party and you immediately shrivel up. Before it used to be because I'm a bit of a recluse, now it's plain old age. It's also this old age that caused me to wear an Ankara dress for my friend's birthday thingy at some lounge in some Penthouse or something. I was peacefully in a haze when my phone rang and the caller said ITS TIME! I was about to tell her I wouldn't make it but then I realized I was the designated driver. In order not to kill their blues with my reggae I got up and got dressed. 

Even in my Ankara I ended up having a blast!


Some of you guys thought some of it was a bit unrealistic, especially how she returned to the village to start a new life there after years of living in the lap of luxury in the metropolitan city of Lagos. Well I may not be living in the lap of luxury in LasGidi but honestly I can see how someone can trade it all in for the simple life of the village. After all, even after my cousins, siblings and other family members have left the East, I'm still here village-chillin' and I'm in no hurry to leave. I just took a bike ride to see my friend who's in her boo's house not too far from my village and once again I was overwhelmed by how beautiful and peaceful village life is. Who wouldn't want to live here???


Notice I just said I went to see my friend whose boo lives in a village close to mine? I'd gone there expecting to meet one Igbo ninja with an nna bros accent and a nwa-Aba attitude. I was in for a surprise. Dude was FRESH, diction was ten over ten, dressing was on point. So of course I began to drill him; how did you end up here? The young man who's also a lawyer attended King's College Lagos and University of Lagos. And why he's here... No extraordinary story; he's just fine here for now. 


Last night my friend, her boo and I went to have drinks at the poolside of one of the numerous hotels in Awka and this tall man built like a tower came over to talk to Yours Truly. He was a really attractive man who's also in town from Lagos at the moment, but there were a number of issues; I found myself having to dumb myself down to talk to him because I noticed that at some point it seemed I was about to scare him away, and that's when he looked at me dubiously and said "You are not just a makeup artist, you sound like a lawyer". Eventually I toned down on the "intelligent" conversation and began to talk about mundane sturves. Sad though, because nigger could get it! Then I found myself wondering; what if we took this farther and I considered giving us a chance. Would I continually have to play things down and settle for the small talk?

TTB readers, have you ever had to be someone or something you're not for a member of the opposite sex, because of love or a relationship? What was it, and why?


  1. Loving the Ankara. Never had to change but I've had to lose weight for one worthless he-goat.

  2. Oh well, we all do things.
    Despite the fact that I'm from a poor home, I was really financially stable in school Thanks to modelling, Pageants & Scholarships.

    But there was a time I wanted this dude to "Love" "me" so much that I refused to eat posh food when I visit him. Only swallows with my hand, LOL. I also lied about attending lectures from my parents house daily cos I knew if he visited my school crib, he will feel too intimidated & run away!
    & Run away, he did. Rssda scholarship to Singapore. Later he was formimg too tush for me. Life! LMSAO

    Lesson, Just Be U. Be Urself. Who deserves to be in ur life will carve a niche for him or herself & stay!!!

  3. I can relate with the 'feeling old' thingy. Gosh!


  4. T, when I was dating this footballer dude, I hhad to play "less intelligent" so as not to bruise his ego, just talking about getting a Masters degree scared the shit outta him, infact he made me feel so ashamed. One day I had a "dull moment" and asked him to spell the word "orphan" what came out of his mouth was "orfan". As much as I like money, I just could keep up with the boring gists we used to have. Very shallow. He is a nice, generous guy, but money wasn't just enough, funny I did really like him too. By the way, he went to Uni o, but he just wasn't the book type.

    1. Dull moment. Orfan. Rotfl. I just can't.

  5. I like the ankara.
    I pretended to be an ajebutter for this guy sometime but after a date I couldn't keep up abeg.

  6. T pls if this sudden village love is a joke stop it. Everybody has left and u are still there doing adventure abi. Ok o, no cold stone or the palms in Anambra state o! Very soon your eyes will clear. Lol

    1. Lol...don't mind this anon. They wld soon open a branch there and u wld enjoy the best of both worlds. Sha do and come back biko...

  7. I had to add up my age all for one dude,he said he wouldn't date a below 24 and I was just 21 then,I had to lie n also mAke a new birth certificate for d monkey to confirm,after all d bouhaha nothing worked out.

  8. What can we pick from all the comments? Lie doesn't PAY. Just be you and the he/she that's destined for you will LOVE you for being you. Simples!

  9. Hmm, My boyfy happened to be the poshest of his siblings, I had to humble myself to flow with this family, most of our conversation would be in yoruba. Each time they came to visit i had to make pounded yam and efo, As for the boyfy i didnt like his diction but he was willing to learn and upgrade. I am an introvert and he an extrovert, I had to be a bit more outgoing. the icing on the cake is i dropped my xtian and moral standards after much persuasion and gave him my virginity.
    Phew so much ill rather be anonymous on this.

  10. d only tin av done is be contented wit less outings lyk am used to,cuz he is nt an outdoor person

  11. This Sasha babe.... U dey do me toritori for body.

  12. To be more outgoing and friendly maybe. I hear i am a rigid individual!

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…
