7 Thoughts, Questions & Musings Before I Board The Plane.






1. After all those years of denying that there's a difference between the light skin and dark skin, you catch yourself staring at the girl twenty feet away again. Not becasue you know her, not because she's particularly beautiful, not because she's special. Because she's light-skinned. So although she's twenty feet away your eyes boycott everyone else in your line of view and repeatedly stray back to her. 


2. But is it possible for a man in Nigeria not to cheat? Dang there are women in this country. We've freaking got beautiful women! I'm female yet I just got lost staring. Just when one catches my attention and I'm wondering what it must feel like to live in that flawless skin, graced with such a pretty face and blessed with that bone structure, another one even more beautiful catches my eyes. I alternate between women-watching and watching men watch the women. They too seem overwhelmed, just when he thought damn she's hot!, someone hotter walks in. 


3. So Faze just walked in, well tailored native outfit, a cap on his head and dark shades. Dark shades inside the departure lounge. Why? Does he worry that he'll be ambushed by fans, rushed by the ladies, attacked by the paparazzi? Or perhaps he doesn't want to be seen and have them think; that has-been. Hell that's what I thought when I saw him; if only I could ask him what's it like; the life of a 'has been'? What are your regrets, fondest memories, deepest wishes and truest feelings about the success of Tuface...


4. The lady who just sat across from me, what's with her? An artificial yellow pawpaw with professional bridal makeup (people get time sha), designer bag, gold jewelry, painfully high heels... Just before I stuffed my ear piece into my ears I thought, I should try to get someone going to my destination, just in case I get carried away by these amazing pieces of 90s music I downloaded last night and miss my flight's announcement, to alert me when our flight is announced.  So I says to her "Hey, hi... Please are you going to ABC?". She recoils like I just asked her to suck mucus from my nose and shrugs no. A minute later she gets up and relocates to a seat at the opposite end of the lounge. Curious thing. 


5. Is today "And co" day? I'm sure I've seen at least three couples (not married), matching the colours and fabrics of their outfits. This one that just walked pass, both denim on denim. Pretty couple I must say. I'm not quite sure though, wearing matching outfits with the boo; cute or 'don't do it!"?


6. I did it. I did it. I talked to a celeb!!! In business class Faze is seated on the right (are you surprised?) and Chigul is on the left. I was going to gush to her about her TEDx Talk, but I noticed the faint lali on her hands and remembered the vibrantly colorful pictures on Instagram the day she had it done. So I'm like "Aww, it's going off already, I saw it when it was brand new", and without missing a beat she looks at her hand and replies with mock sorrow, "Yeah, it's fading, and fading very fast. So so annoying!", I laugh; "I know, right" and walk on to my seat. She's good people! 
       Oh Daddy Freeze was on board too. Very cute but smaller than I'd expected. Him, I wanted to ask; so is this one of your $90,000 watches, because it don't look 'that' expensive... But hey, what do I know about watches?


7. I find it very hard to believe that the departure lounge is packed and bursting at its seams with people, yet I don't know one person here. Not a familiar face, not an acquaintance, not an old friend. So many people in the world, way too many, 6,000,000,000 and counting. Thousands of people here too, thousands of people everywhere. So how is it that I have not one to call my own? 


***
Feels good to be away from Gidi, I really need this! How goes it, guys?

To summarize my thoughts 
1. Light skin is more attractive 
2. It'll take God's grace and severe discipline (for a man) not to cheat
3. It must suck to have had fame and success. 
4. Weird things and people abound. 
5. Not sure how I feel about dating couples matching outfits
6. I like Chigurl
7. Too many people yet no one..

  3. Wearing matching outfit is annoying unless you are married and it is for an occasion. I will never purposely match my boyfriends clothes. I think it's even embarassing lol.

    1. Even as married couples going for an occasion...arrrrrrrgh. I wouldn't like it. I would have to play around with my style to reduce the 'anconess' but I think most men these days just wear white and the cap can match the colour of whatever the mademoiselle is wearing.

      Have a safe flight TT and enjoy your weekend.

    1. I'm also guilty of this. So many 'well-shaped' and attractive women.

    2. In other words if you were a man you'd cheat a lot and have many girlfriends abi. Then why is it so hard for women to understand why men cheat?

    3. Mbanu! No I'll neither cheat nor have many girlfriends, I'll simply date one for a while and move on to the next that catches my eye.

      No mind me abeg.

  10. Lol people watching is one of my favorite things to do at the airport. Trying to guess where they're coming from, stuff about they're lives, what they're thinking...etc. safe trip madam!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I would have guessed you went to Benin...but benin airport is closeed i hear. So abuja it was.
    Light akin is striking in Nigeria - because the population is titled towards darker skin..same way a black person in Finland will always get stared at.

    2. Fidelity is a big choice for both men and women. Lol.

    3. Airport people watching is interesting esepcially in Nigeria...some people are fully dressed to head to parties from the airport.

    As for has been, Faze- can't imagine how he feels. I am still confused as to why Freeze is so razz by declaring watch prices no one asked him about.

    Hope you had or have a good time away from all the Lagos madness.

  12. Your mind can run sha, lol.
    1: I think the light skinned attraction has to do with our being used to sun blackened people that it's rare these days to see a genuinely light skinned person with no patches.
    2: it's possible for a man not to cheat, all it takes is knowing, valuing and most importantly valuing who you're with and know that you can't risk losing her. Another question I ask myself before I approach a girl cos of her looks is, after the sex what next? She'll become ordinary in my eyes like any other I've slept with. Not worth it when I have someone that gives me sex and so much more!
    T you might need to move around more, the billions of people are scattered all over the world and the one might not be close to where you are right now.
    Meanwhile matching outfits are just so... I dunno the word for it but tacky, cheesy, annoying don't quite cut it.
    Hope you have a nice flight T, I'm sure you did, you talked to a celeb after 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…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

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
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

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.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

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…

Shhhhhhh....

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.
