About Last Night. (What Would You Do?)





Last night was magical. But magic aside, around 12am I found out I needed a supply and began to panic when my friend says not to worry, we'll go pick it up at the 24hr store. We were cut up in drinks and conversation when we realized it was 1am and we best get going. Off to the store, the roads were still busy, I got stopped by two police men #happyweekendma and the store was a bit crowded #saturdaynightlife. Leaving the store, my friend was walking beside me, but along the curb while I was walking closer to the road, as it wasn't so busy. Then a car coming towards me suddenly starts speeding with full force, with the horns blaring loudly, the car swerves straight at me and on getting within a few inches of me, the driver suddenly marches his brake and swerves back unto the road, the driver and his cohort laughing uproariously. I'm in shock and unlike was expected of me, (to panick, shriek, jump up and jump back, fall down maybe), I stand on the spot, transfixed. Those bloody idiots could have either killed me or destroyed my legs. 

A few feet away they park, come out of the car to walk into a nearby club. (I was glad I didn't give them the satisfaction of seeing me freaking out. 

Now my partner stood, battling with emotions and decisions; to ignore them and keep walking or to approach them and demand an explanation/apologies. Everyone looked to him to see how he would react. The guys had just assaulted the lady he was with. 

My question is, as a lady, would you have expected/preferred him to approach the young guys and "defended your honour"? As a guy, would you have confronted them, perhaps made them apologise, or would you have just let it slide?

Do let me know.

  1. Thelma, tell us how it ended. :)

    Defend honour? Those guys were definitely not ok. I feel there's no need wasting time or energy on them. If the car had hit me or the items I carried, then we can talk about approaching them.

  2. No need escalating the issue beyond that by trying to play hero. They could be on drugs, drunk or just plain ignorant. Best thing would be to get their plate number and report to the police for hit and run, or something.

  3. I won't put my date through the stress. Anything can happen especially if the idiots are more than 2 people.

    If I'm in a really vengeful mood, I'd wait an then slit their tires. I mean all 4's.

    Honestly, I don't even have to be in a vengeful mood to slit their tires, what they did was very despicable and it was just God.

    If you were asthmatic or hypertensive, who knows what the effect of such trauma would have caused.

    As my mama will say, don't get angry, get even.

    Thank God you are A-OKAY,

  5. Crazy peeps behind wheels..thank heavens nothing serious happened. Like someone mentioned,who knows they might be on drugs or were drunk.

    I won't have allowed any date to go confront them...

  8. This topic is very sensitive. There was this girl I was courting a while back and things were going really well. One friday night we went to the SIP, we were having a lot of fun till I noticed two drunks staring at her butt (which is offensively big by the way) and murmuring some unintelligible things to each other. So I said them, na my madam be dat o, so they apologized and stopped. Later I told her that I noticed some guys were admiring her butt, then she asked me what I did when I noticed and I told her. Next thing her mood changed. After that night she stopped taking my calls. Then two weeks later I asked her friend if she had spoken to her and if there was something wrong. Her friend said she told her that she couldn't date me because I couldn't defend her honor. And I told her friend to tell her that I said that if her idea of defending her honor is fighting with 2 drunks for staring at a woman's ass in the club then she should fuck off.

    1. But you cautioned them by publicly laying claims on your woman which ended the blatant staring and the guys even apologized. How else does one defend honor?

      What is you hadn't shared what transpired with her?

    2. Ehen, we would have probably dated and broken up over another petty issue.

  9. Reminds me of one time I was walking with my albino friend (female), and this guys were saying all sorts, what they never guessed was that I am Yoruba, we walked past them and I gave them the middle finger without my friend knowing too... Then this other time too I almost got in a fight with two guys talking foul behind me... I mean it's a full time job to deal with issues like that. So it's best to just walk away. Thank God nothing happened and continue with your life.

  10. Best to ignore the maniacs and puncture those tires.....maybe not all four of them, but definitely not less than 2 and not more than 3!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I would definitely want my companion to ignore them. There are other ways to show masculinity than to get into a row with hooligans. When a sane man argues with a mad man, an observer cannot tell the difference.
    Thank God you're safe, Thelma.

  12. Hahahahaaa! Write "bloody ass wipes" on their car with whatever you have and what Clare and sunshine said. All four!
    Crazy lot! I sure would have done something! Especially if I could! Idiots!

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!
