Mind-Boggling Questions and My Sexy Superhero!

Hey people! Today was just one hell of a day. I woke up feeling too sick to do anything and I made all the necessary calls to ensure that I could spend the day in bed. I felt so sick that even when the popular media diva and vlogger called and said she'll be shooting three episodes of her Vlog today, in an interior decor shop somewhere in Lekki 1, and asked if I would like to come around, I said no. That's how horrible I felt. 

But barely ten minutes later several things suddenly popped up and I realized that I didn't have the luxury of spending an entire day in bed, I got up and hit the road. It's almost midnight and I only just came home, that's why I've been MIA all day. I'm very thankful to God for a beautiful day though. 

The picture above brought a smile to my face. I'm excited about my life right now, I'm at peace with so many decisions I'm making, and I applaud myself for making these decisions and for putting plans into action. One of these decisions was to reach out to this lady in an industry I'm 'eyeing'. She's doing exploits and making waves. I hope to do something similar someday, but these are things that must be learnt, yet they aren't taught. So I decided that I want to work with her, understudy her in the process and have some of her knowledge from years of experience, and fairy dust rub off on me. LOL. 
     I scoured the Internet for her contacts and eventually found her email attached to an article she wrote some years ago. I mailed her and she hola'd back. We got talking and I told her what I wanted. She enthusiastically told me that she would love to have me on her team and further updated me on some projects she is involved in and asked where I thought I could fit in. 

I let her know and then she immediately said "I'm not sure I can pay you right now though". I explained that money wasn't the reason I sought her out. Her response, with all seriousness and curiosity; "So how do you make your money? Are you a runs girl?", she asked me pointedly. I tried to laugh it off but I could see that she actually wanted an answer, she wasn't laughing. Was she really expecting a "yes ma, I am lawyer by day, runs girl by night"? I really don't know...

Well she was a bit dubious because I was volunteering to work gratis and this almost led her to question my competence. What she failed to realize was that my passion and drive would make me do one hell of a job! We're still on the matter, we've become quite friendly and I'm learning a lot. 

Meanwhile why hasn't he called me? I went to Spar last week to get a new standing fan as PHCN is vexing, and right there in the electronics section Prince Charming walked up to me. He politely asked me questions about this and that. Yes PRINCE CHARMING! The kind I sometimes fantasize about, sexy-geek kinda guy, broad shouldered 6 footer, creamy light skin but not too fair, nerd glasses with the cute boyish face and an athletic body. *Pheew! Take me nowwwwww!*. He asked my opinion on the inverter he wanted to buy and tsk-tsked when I told him I know nothing about inverters, that ours was just paid for and installed, I asked no question. He wanted to know what I thought about Binatone rechargeable fans and then asked a few more random questions, all in the name of forming conversation. Finally he asked the most important one; can I have your number please?

Duuhhh. Off kess you can baybay! I learnt that he's single and had just moved into a new home and was trying to set things up. Right there in the middle of all the buzz we talked about his new home, his former home, our jobs, the power situation, if we were voting the next day and some other random chatter. 
      He asked if we could hang out after the election, "go somewhere stimulating" were his words and I joked that I would leave it to him to pick the place, as "somewhere stimulating" is relative. We parted ways to do our separate shopping but he came over to say bye when he was leaving. 

So Clark why haven't you called?

He gave me his number too and I'm wondering what to do with it. To call or not to call? Ladies, would you? Fellows, should I? 


  1. You're balling T!
    Now,to the ish at hand;If I were in your shoes T,I'd send him a "just checking on you" sms if you know what I mean. I know I won't call him sha..

  2. Jus wait for him to call, don't call him, he might ve a girlfriend keeping him busy at d Mo.

  3. I would so called him as a matter of fact if I saw and fancied him and he walked up to me and asked for my number, I would tell him to give me his and I will call him. That way, it frees me of the "should I call or should I wait for him to call me" disease and it allows me to take my time and believe that when my call comes through, it must have been anticipated.
    tried it twice and one was one of my best relationships. So please call and ASAP.

  4. Hahaha,since he's Clark (Kent) ur prolly Louise (Lane). Just wait for his call but keep ur kryptonite close...

  5. Not to call, just wait for his call,hopefully he will call

  6. Why wait for his call? Call him instead. My advice may not be the best but it's been a week now and you're just *Lois Lane*. Who knows, there's been enough time for him to bump into *Lana Lang*, *Wonder Woman*, and even Sasha Bone!!

    1. Lol.

      The ball is in your court. I'd say don't call yet...

  7. Thelma Biko call him. What's that? He could have lost his phone & Ur number... He could have been hit by a trailer & has amnesia... He could...
    Just Call him Abeg!

    By the way, So U dey Purt-high-cot?

    1. No Nne, I'm in Lagos. There's Spar in Lagos too.

  8. Lmao @ Lois Lane and Lana Lang..
    Pls don't call, by ur description m sure he must have had many ladies make the *first call*, he shld make this one please.
    Guys shaa

    Call him and say Just checking to make sure you have settled into your new apartment.
    If he says Is this how you go checking up on everybody new in the area.
    Say No, Only those I plan to go somewhere stimulating with.
    Hopefully you can both laugh it off and start a conversation from there. But make sure he's the next to call.

    1. Oh Anonymous Rider you flirt! I'm loving you. LOL.

    2. Anonymous Rider!12:03 pm, April 16, 2015

      I loff you too#

  10. By all means, please call him.


  11. Biko call him oh, nowadays I hv learned to just do it. If you call and he answers do tell him you waited for
    his call and thought you should call to check up. If you're there thinking he must hv others on his trail well you're not others and besides he might not. PLEASE CALL.

  12. CALL HIM!!!!!! ask how his inverter is, and how settling into his new place is going.. dont mention d hangout though..he might have not saved your number by mistake or something.. abeg, life is too the dude...

  13. please call! it doesnt hurt abi? do not send sms you might not get a reply! for all i care he probably forgot to save your nos or lost it, or quite busy settling in or waiting for you to call too, or... some guyz wont want to be too forward he made the first move by asking for your number. just call and save yourself plenty stress. tell you just called to find out how hes settling in his new apartment. shikena! keep the conversation short sha n don't go laughing too much like some1 is tickling you if funny is been said.

  14. Replies
    1. Ok. *Curious*. Are you Tolulope Alabi?

    2. Ah ah T of course! just decided to ditch my maiden name on my gmail lol

  15. Lmaoo @ "Duuhhh. Off kess you can baybay!" thelma ehn! Loool. Don't call jare... I asked a friend of mine(lol) and he thinks you shouldn't call. Hehehehee... calm down... if he really likes u/if u made a good impression, he'll call! If not... gbagbe jare.
    Your type tho... lol. i'm just 5" or 5"1 and I want someone that is 6 feet tall. Hehehehee!

  16. Check if he is on whatsapp and strike up a conversation if you feel calling him is too forward. Meanwhile where are all the hot guys on this island sef.

  17. I have heard a lot about guys like the one mentioned above who NEVER call after taking your number; but truth is, your mind will keep bugging you then you start to give excuses why he hasn't called you*maybe he lost his phone,maybe he didn't save the number, maybe he took ill etc. you will watch out for every incoming call hoping it's him.
    To save yourself the stress, also making sure he didn't fall into a coma after he left you at the mall.,i'll advice you call him but make sure NEVER to call him if he doesn't return your call.Its not a competition its called moving on therapy.

  18. It's been a week, send him an SMS, ask about the new home movement, wish him a great day.

    If he calls back, fine. If he doesn't all well and good.

    My husband (when he was toasting) didn't go all out, cos he was wondering if I was in a relationship. (someone had told him previously that I was engaged to one maga).

    I knew he liked me, (I could see it in his eyes -lol)
    I had to make it easy for him without making a fool of myself. He was going to the movies, I also decided I would (it was not in my plans previously). We hooked up and the rest is history.

    Moral of the story,do what needs to be done, if it will be, it will be.
    I hope he calls you soonest.

  20. Text him but dont call. I really dont know why i am thinking that way. Lol

  21. Thelma as ye can see, the call hims have it.

  22. Nne please call him he may have lost your number. Same thing happened to me when I met DH, he collected my number but cos he was hurrying out he didn't save it and lost it. If not that his sis is my friend, he had to ask her for it that's how I would have waited till thy Kingdom come *rollseyes. Took him bout two weeks before his brain booted that he could actually get it from his sister.

  23. He is just not that into you. get over it.

    1. The words I was thinking but couldn't bring myself to type.

    2. If he wasn't into her he wouldnt bother getting her number because nobody forced him.

  24. Forget this hater. Text him, just say hi at least.

  25. Me thinks you should send a text too, the kind that is curious about how he is settling in.

  26. Lol there's nothing to tell you cos they've said it all!!!!!!!!!!!

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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
