Dear Thelma... (His Father Stopped The Light!)

Thelma do you know some people can be so very wicked. In my street we had not had light for over 4 months. Some men on the street met with some nepa officials and they said they will connect us with light from another area, at least 12 hours a day, for 1.5m. Its not just my street but about 4 or 5 streets in all. Each house will pay 30k or less and that means a flat is paying about 7k. Everybody was happy with this arrangement but towards the day we were to pay we had a meeting and one old Yoruba man on my street came n scattered the meeting. He said if anybody pays any money he will sue nepa for bribe and sue all the landlords on the streets for bribing an official. That is how nepa left us anddusted their hands. People tried to reason with this man becos paying 7k is nothing compared to the amount for fuel in a week and the emotional trauma. The man bluntly refused so everybody went back home. We were thinking maybe the man is enjoying the no light. Only for us to see that the next week his children sent contractors to fix solar panels in his house, and inverter. So this man enjoys electricity constantly but stopped everybody on FIVE streets from having light. Imagine the wickedness. It has been 3 months now n still no light. Now the koko of the matter is that I met one guy on my street one evening I was coming back from work. We started talking on the phone because he said he just came to visit somebody, he does not live here. I started liking him a lot and he likes me too. I don't see him all the time because he lives on the island but we live in satellite area but we have gone on dates and he asked me to be his girlfriend. To be honest I was already thinking maybe this is my husband and planning wedding in my mind, you know how we women are. But on Saturday when he came to see me that's when I just found out that the wicked man on my street is his father. I have stopped taking his call since then and I want to tell him I'm not interested in the relationship again. Please am I overreacting? Remember that because of this man we still have no light. 


  1. Lol,funny girl.the guy did nothing to you,you have problems with his dad.

  2. Rotflmaoooo!!!! Wahala! *grabs fresh yo and roasted corn*

  3. Lmhao! Babe! Chill!

    Are you for real right now... this is so funny. What's your business with his dad? As far as the guy is a good guy and he genuinely likes you, you have no business whatsoever with his dad. Plus, when you guys get real close, you can prevail on him to get his dad to reason with you guys.

    And to answer your question, yes, you are overreacting.

    Bia, pick his calls biko.

  4. Lol,funny girl.the guy did nothing to you,you have problems with his dad.

  5. See what lack of electricity can cause,Dear poster you are overreacting,this might open a way to make you guys have light again..You never know

  6. Hehehe. Wahala in paradise.

    But dear Poster, why paint this elderly man wicked? Afterall he's standing for what's right whether we like it or not. Granted, the erratic power supply has affected alot of us economically but that doesn't justify bribery. And connecting your street line to another wouldn't grant you the 12 hours you're looking for because it'll increase the allocated load on the transformer(s) on that street and cause major issues on the long run. Before long the tenants on that street file a complaint and voila: immediate investigation. Who then loses? Remember most government officials are being careful in the discharge of their duties this era.

    Oh..and baba's acquisition of solar panels is a private business, power or no.

  7. Ah, where did you spring out from. Abeg, dis story sounds like one outdated soap opera.
    Wetin be dis? In this day and age, a chick thinking like dis. Chei, I haf ova lafffff oooo.
    Because of light kwa. Don't let that guy know the reason for ur not taking his calls o, cus d guy will laff till he faints.
    U are so funny. My friend pick dat guy's calls. U never know, he might give double solar power....Lol

  8. LOL! Funny babe! Yes you are over-reacting because the guy did nothing to you, na the papa you get problem with. You never know, he can make you guys have light again.

  9. Hahahahhahahahahahahahahahahah! You haff kill me with laff! Lol

    Pls calm down take his calls, he has done nothing to you, you can get him talk over the light problem and the supposed bribery with his dad, be the redeemer of your street.

  10. This post just made my night,like seriously gal,are u for real?biko pick his calls joor. Lolllllllllllllllll.

  11. OMG!!! I haff die...I needed dis laugh

  12. Rotfl ......babe you are so funny....could not stop laughing while reading this

    Still,i feel your pain...Here you were gonna be having power supply at least for specific period of the day.....all you had to do was pay 7k...which you obviously don't mind....then baba scattered it was even more painful learning baba had sorted himself out with solar power

    BUT,your problem is not with the guy....its with his dad....i will say you should pick the guys call

    Dang,some of us ladies can be such drama queens

  13. This post got me laughing. First of all the wicked man was just acting on principle. Am sure he didn't object to paying the bribe just to spite the rest of the neighborhood. No 2. Methinks you should be glad your potential father in law is a principled man who wont stand for nonsense of any son. Hopefully this will translate to him being able to set his son right if he ever misbehaves.

    You might need to ask yourself your real reasons for backing out.... Maybe a fear of converting to the principled lifestyle

  14. So you dont have light? You also want to be bae-less? You need serious reorientation. Better go and get your bae. You can explain to the guy that you were sorting through your feelings and at the end you considered his father a very principled man who refused to pay bribes. Because you do have to explain those unanswered calls. Thats of course if he hasnt found a new BAE!

    1. Hahahaha. Nice one miss pynk. The unanswered calls have to be explained. I love such elderly men; very principled.

    2. 'You also want to be Bae-less??' EPIC.......

      I just showed my friend this post and we've been laughing ourselves silly.....Having this man as prospective father in-law would be a plus sef anytime Your Bae to be wants to misbehave.....Start calling him oooooo

      P.S Sorry I've not mailed you Pynk been busy with Final Project in school...

  15. This is obviously the joke of the century. Seriously, bcos of one baba's problem u ignore the son. Abeg call the guy jare

  16. Lmaooo, this gats to be a joke right? hehe

  17. You're not serious. My friend will go and accept his bae-ship proposal. You may end up having access to the light the father is enjoying.

  18. My dear poster,
    Make sure you take this secret to the grave if you ever get back with bae biko
    you hear me....kamagbo!

  19. Lol. Biko go for bae before someone else acquires him. Babes ain't smiling o!

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.
