When A Drinks Poison To Kill B, and other Pay-Back Plots.

Although Jamil had broken up with Ronke and was already dating Catherine, as most couples do even after they break up, they remained physically intimate. So that weekend when Ronke called Jamil and told him that she needed a place to stay for a couple of nights, Jamil was kind enough to play host to her, besides Catherine wasn't in town, and of course there was the added benefit of sex with the ex

And when a day to Catherine's return, Jamil told Ronke she would have to leave and she didn't complain, it was a happy surprise for him. Willingly Ronke packed her bag and left but around midnight called Jamil; she had forgotten some things at his place. He told her she could come and pick them up and she drove down. Then she told Jamil that she was craving Suya and pleaded with him to come with her to buy some, promising they would go in her car, he wouldn't even have to leave the car and she would bring him back home. Jamil, being the nice ex boyfriend threw on a Tshirt over his boxers and jumped into her car. 

This was almost 1am on a week night. They drove from his Ajah home to the express. As they approached Agungi/Osapa London, Ronke said she was hearing a noise coming from the back tire and slowed down so that Jamil could check it out. The minute Jamil stepped out of the car, Ronke stepped hard on the throttle and flew away into the night, taking along with her Jamil's phones and wallet. 

Two days later Jamil recounted to us how he had to walk from Osapa London to wayyyy inside Ajah at 1am, in his boxers and Tshirt, with no money or phone to call a friend. He got home around 4am, infuriated, exhausted and almost half dead with cold and fear. We empathized with him but we ladies couldn't stop laughing our heads off; haven't you heard not to mess with a woman scorned?

I've always been too mentally lazy to plot revenge against an ex but I've seen many happen. Ranging from slashing tires, to getting them fired at work (you really need to be careful the things you whisper to your lover when love is "shacking" y'all. It doesn't always remain sweet forever and the greatest ammunition you have against someone sometimes is their secrets). But the one I heard today took the cake. It a typical case of chopping off your finger to make someone else bleed. 

Ada's boyfriend of three years suddenly dumped her. Now not only did he dump her, he started dating someone else almost immediately. And then to rub salt on her wound, got married to this new squeeze  a few months later. Ada had been severely heartbroken from the moment he broke things off, but to hear that he got married to this girl barely four months after they started dating, five months after he broke up with her, after dating her for three years, she thought she would die!

Then Sammy comes into the picture. Ada has no feelings for him, no interest, no attraction, no affection. But Sammy is determined, so he continues to show up. Even in the face of Ada's disdain and disinterest, Sammy proposes. 

Aha! Now we're talking. Ada readily says yes, but only because she wants to spite her ex. You remember her ex is married, right? Well, wedding plans are underway and everyone close to Ada has noticed how much she loathes her fiancé. She screams when the phone rings and its him on the screen, she constantly complains about every single thing he does and represents, and to make matters worse, she cannot stand his touch; so when they have sex she's first got to ensure that she's well and truly wasted, alcohol is her new besto. Still, Ada soldiers on with the wedding plans. 

It makes no sense to us why she thinks this would matter to her ex, we doubt if he would even notice. Now, we understand the idea of gloating when one is getting married after being dumped. But then to do so, mainly to spite the ex, and to someone whose entire being you find intensely irritating... Come on, that's just a case of drinking poison and hoping it kills someone else!

All accounts in this post are factual, and all names have been changed. I'm almost certain we've all been hurt before. Some of us accept it as "God's plan", or leave vengeance for God. Some however choose to give God some assistance and take matters into their own hands. Have you ever made actual calculated efforts to get back at an ex who really hurt you? Please give us the juicy deets; the plan, the plots and the ending. Or has an ex done you strong thing like Jamil above? SPILLLLLLLLLLL. LOL. 

What do you think about what Ada is doing? *when we discussed it, I said "on the bright side, they say it's better for a lady to marry a man who loves her a lot more than she loves him, so maybe things might actually work out well for Ada and her marriage"*. What do you think?


  1. Ronke na correct chick lol. I've never been patient enough to plot revenge I just string you along and dump you when you least expect.

    1. Sorry I don't get... You want to dump someone who has dumped you already?

      I'm confused abt the revenge

    2. Lmao, I won't lie I'm confused too. How can you string someone along who is supposed to have dumped you? The string was already cut by him.

    3. Whn he had already dumped u like 11 months ago?

      *talk to the hand*

  2. It takes maturity to handle "friends with benefits" situations.
    As for revenge and co, I let karma do the dirty work...

  3. I have no time at all to plot a Revenge, am all for its the will of God
    No one has actually ever broken up with me,I broke up all my past relationships
    I pray it remains like that Biko

  4. Things of the heart are always complicated... You can't eat your cake and have it. You can't have your cake and eat it. Tom'ei'to, tom'a'to... In the end, we just have to choose happiness over everything/anything.

    Life is too short

  5. Abeg too much drama in this world (I say again); why create complications? God forbid Jamil was attacked and probably killed? How would Ms Scorned defend herself when she put him in her car and put his life in danger. And WHY DON'T PEOPLE LEARN??!! Why continue communicating with an ex? Shebi Jamil be wan chop clean mouth in the absence of his chic abi? I wonder if he told her what happened. He does not have my sympathies. As for Ada that is cutting of her nose to spite her face; i dey look am. Soon she will start disturbing the radio waves by calling all dem ''sharing life issues with Chaz B....'' with her marriage tales of sadness. How someone can choose the unhappy and bitter part; i don't gerrit at all.......

    1. LOL. You're hilarious. And of course he didn't tell his boo what happened. How could he?

    2. very apt anon! very apt!
      you see misery and walk into it with your eyes open... you wie now come back and be telling us stories that touch! mstchewww!
      before you pity some people, you really should question the foundation of their relationship. else, you waste emotions that should have been kept for better use. lol.. pala pala something!

    3. Tsshhheeww..... The guy for open e mouth tell e gehfriend wetin e use eye see. Nansense
      (In English; the Gentleman should have told his Lady friend his experience. Nonsense)

  6. break-up in relationships is a very difficult thing. If you have a feeble mind, please double date to avoid matters that touch the brain.

    1. I wish i did this, I put all my eggs in one basket for 3 years and got bit in the face. 6 months I still cant move on or get over it.

    2. Errr, is this coming 4rm some1 who likes to double date?

      *side eyes*

  7. Lol, My ex broke up with me after Cheating on me. I thought we genuinely loved each other o. I know i am not going to revenge all his actions towards me and I know I need to cut him off. I deserve better than checking on me once a week.
    I'm travelling to America next week for Vac and he asked if we were going to see as we were supposed to travel on vacation together, I know I want to see him and get closue on some things or maybe im just lonely and needy and dont want to be bored on this trip.
    But then I dont know, I'm so confused as to if we should see during this trip or i just play mature and see him without discussing what could have been. As my flight draws nearer every night I lay awake wondering if his offer to meet up and spend time is out of guilt or he just wants sex.
    I dont know if the situation will be akward, we are both in Lagosand not seeing, What are we going to be doing during this trip, Makeup and Makeout and things return to normal after the vac. Gosh That will really break my heart considering i still love him.
    I really wish I could meet someone new and just forget him, Im so disturbed. I dont seem to be moving on. I'm such a nice and sweet person if i say so myself and sometimes i regret being such a goody two shoes. I feel so drained emotionally. My birthday is coming up too, I just want to run away from it all.

    1. I'm sorry u r going thru this hun but I really won't advocate seeing him as u probably will end up getting intimate and u will get hurt even deeper. Go on ur holiday and forget about him. If u want closure get closure in lagos. #mytowscents

    2. You're too fragile and vulnerable to get intimate with him right now, it will only break you even more. I think you should avoid seeing him until you're strong enough to resist getting intimate with him. The reality is that you might not be that strong till you meet someone that fills the void in your heart. That door of happiness has closed, don't keep staring at it and miss the other one that will open soon.

    3. My heart goes out to you adey... you'll be fine dear... *hugs*

  8. Ada is a fool if she is marrying a man she dislikes to spite her ex. That is the height of self immolation for the absolute worst set of reasons.

  9. My friend always says " just allow things happen naturally." Then again,these things can be triggered by God or the devil.
    I've been through break ups,but this last one is just off the chain because it took me months to heal.
    I never for once, felt I should do something ridiculous to get back at him.
    My love didn't grow into hate because he broke up...
    Some things are just not meant to matter how wonderful it is.
    I don't believe in Karma because there's nothing like that.
    What will be will be. Insha'Allah.

  10. Ada needs help. She is self destructive

    1. Exactly. She's punishing herself for an offence committed by her ex. Na wa 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.
