The Perfect Valentine's Day- By Queen

So it was Valentine's eve, I went over to boo's house to pass the night there against the Valentine's day (V Day) proper and we couldn't stop talking about how the next day was going to turn out.

We had already spent the whole week planning and preparing for the V Day. The short blue dress le boo ordered for me had arrived, his own white shirt was delivered by the landry man the day before, properly ironed and packaged. I decided that we'd go for blue and white instead of the normal red and white, just to stand out.

We maped out all the classy, less crowdy places to visit; from the photo studio for just one or two snap shots, to the charity home, then to one of the most beautiful resorts in town, to the boat ride, then to the ranch and from there to my favourite resturant in GRA for some very yummy choppings on a specially dressed table, and finally to the beautiful lounge we both love, to listen to some cool music and have some heart to heart conversation before we finally retire to the house, cuddle up, fantasize about the future, whisper sweet nothings and sleep off.

Boo agreed firmly to these arrangements, obviously initiated by me, to satisfy me with the V Day feelings I had always wanted for so long, he wanted to be the one to stand out amongst them all. I had mentioned to him how it always turned out in the past, it was either we were broken up before the V Day or not in good terms during that period, or distance issues, or that I was entirely single! At one point, one of them exes actually got me some nice gifts the day before and then travelled for his friend's sister's matriculation ceremony on the V Day. Not that I regret all of those or felt hurt, no, I just wanted to experience what the V Day fuss was all about, even if it was just once. Am not easily moved by these stuffs, I just wanted "that one time".

And Yaay! The V day is here! I have Tony here! Yipeee!!!
Boo was still in bed, I woke up first and doing my saturday chores couldn't have felt any better, washing and cleaning with smiles and songs. I made omelete and green tea for myself and boo. My mischievous self decided to peep at him first, I saw he was awake, smiling in his thoughts, I tip-toed back to the kitchen, carried our breakfast, singing and walking towards his room, he shut his eyes very quickly!... Ah ah baby u too like play play! Open your eyes jor..., he smiled, kissed me and we devoured the meal.

"Babe wake up and get ready, its 12pm already", I said in my sleepy voice, stretching, shaking him and jumping out of bed, all at a time. 
I was already half dressed when I heard "No! You've gotta be kidding me", what? I asked, "babe can you imagine", he showed me the iron holes and burnt stains on his shirt. No baby, I murmured, this can't be happening, no, not today, its nothing! My heart was already skipping, my extremely high morale dropping rather fast. I rushed to the wardrobe, thank God, a neat white shirt but no he didn't like putting on that one, not at all. I pleaded and he agreed, I continued with my make up. Everything done and off we went! 

Settled in the car, smilling sheepishly this time. Finally I'm experiencing the almighty V Day, I thought to myself. God bless Tony for me. Boo interupted my thoughts, baby the car has refused to start o, I don't know what's wrong!... The devil is a liar! Hehe!!!... He checked something in the bonnet, back in the car and tried again, it would start and stop and stop at once.

Haaay! God forbid! I started dialling his mechanic's number, looking at my wrist watch, kpatakpata (worst case scenario) we skip the photo session... Hello madam abeg I no dey town now no vex, I comot this early morning, wetin dey worry the...I hung up, holding back my tears. I turned to boo, baby please don't do this to me, try something, do something, call somebody! Honey please don't spoil your gorgeous face, its nothing serious yet, I'm trying to call Chuks (his friend that lives nearby) but his line is not connecting, calm down baby ok. Hmm, I checked my time again, kpatakpata we skip the visit to the resort!

The clouds turned dark and before I could say 'Jack, it was raining heavily! we ran under the compound shade while boo kept trying the lines of God knows who in his already straight, cold, disappointed and helpless face. No speech! No eye contacts! No body contacts! The rain got even heavier. I checked my time once again, kpatakpata we skip that lunch, I must have this boat ride with Tony, at least the V Day experience nau God please!

We gazed at each other almost at once, he drew me closer to him, held me so tight to himself, I'm sorry baby, I'm so sorry please don't cry, I ll make it up to you on your very special V Day, please dear.... OMG!!! Is this for real? I thought. No babe don't worry, let's wait a lil bit, the rain is gonna stop and then we'll hit the road to anywhere and do anything, just anything, as long as its today, you and I alone. The rain poured even heavier and louder. Tony held my hands and we ran back inside the house!

No conversations, not even pleas from boo, he was so sad. 
I had a warm bath, put on his sweatshirt and socks, curled up on the bed, in his arms, unable to utter a word. At least Tony stayed with me on this V Day, made efforts to make me happy, I thought conclusively in consolation to my bitter self. He kissed my forehead, still no word, it continued to rain.

Hahahahahahha!!!..I heard laughing voices, mine and boo's... ah ah! I opened my slightly shut eyes properly, behold, it was my voice and his, the tv was on, showing one of our hangouts with his and my friends. Shocked! I looked at him and he placed his finger accross my lips so as to keep my mouth shut, then he held me even tighter... The next scene was when he came to my office on my last birthday with my gifts and my reactions, next was our arguements and quarells in the car while driving to my friend's wedding ceremony, next was the few times I cooked in his kitchen on the various days I visited, next was another hangout at his mom's boutique followed by our visits to the zoo and how I screamed at the site of scary animals while he laughed so hard, OMG!!! A video tape of almost all my sweet and bitter memories with Tony kept playing, tears rolled down my cheeks as I watched. Then the shocker came, I saw my sister looking all glamed up.. happy valentine's day babe, she laughed,hope you're having fun with T, see you soon... Christ!!!.. Next, two of my best friends,... happy valentine's day baaaaaaaaabe! We love you but T loves you more, see you soon. Hahahahahahahah!!! Next was my boo of all times looking very charming... Here's wishing you a happy valentine's day my Queen. The laundry blunder, the car break down, even the extra white shirt, the mechanic and all of that was all in the perfect valentine's day plan for you my Queen...*i guess the rain took you by surprise and made it even more perfect for me* i thought... I did most of the recordings on my own, Chuks helped me sometimes. I'd love to continue this journey with you for the rest of my life. My Queen, please be my wife, he flashed a very gentle smile, then my photos, both the ones I snapped before I met him, all started displaying one after the other with my favourite music playing in the background.

Oh My! I just couldn't believe It, I hugged him so tight, I didn't want to let go. He promised and he kept it. The Perfect Valentine's day! He brought out the most georgeous diamond ring ever, went on his knees and asked again, please will you marry me my Queen?... 'Yes my King I will' I answered. We hugged and kissed passionately like never before.

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.

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…
