    The one advice I always pass to my siblings is never give mummy your money to save for you, that money has entered one chance, the moment you mistakenly ask for that money, your own Don finish for that house!! Loool
    My dad usually gives us money every month, even back then in my secondary school days,me being overly ambitious asked mumsi for advice on how to use my money, she said just give it to me I would open an account for you, then you take the money when you get to the University...Very sweet and wonderful advice abi, I said Okay oo, gave her all the money.. Fast forward to when I needed it;
    Me: mummy, remember that my money you saved in the account for me I need it now.
    Mum: which money??
    Me: the one you said you would open account with for me naa.
    Mum: okay, ahh what do you want to use the money for, shebi we've finished shopping for all you need to take to school, plus daddy has given you feeding money already.
    Me: Ehn, I know, I just need it since I'm going to school now.
    Mum: See, if it's that money that you are waiting for sorry, is it money that you are going to University to spend ehn this girl, is it money? After I took the pain to take you round balogun market to get you everything you need for school, we walked under the sun, looking for all the things that would make you comfortable in school and you are not even greatful, you are asking for money, which money...All the food I've been cooking for you and you've been eating since I gave birth to you nko, do you think the meat and chicken you eat everyday I stole it from the market...*continues ranting*
    Me: *promises my self for the 100th time not to give mummy my money again*

  9. Lol, I laughed so hard the day this thing was trending on twitter..

    My mum is 2, 3,9, 18,19, and 20. You see that number 19 ehn, I use to shift from her side in the market cos I'm always afraid the eleran will just vex and hack us with the knife. Mehn... mumsie can price meat for Africa.

    No 5, and 17 are my Grandma. Hers is with "telefisun". She's like, "why won't you have malaria? Don't you know that too much television has adverse effect on your body?" and I'll be like, "so which college of medicine did you learn that one from now?" That woman is hilarious mehn. And that number 17, all my dad's enemies and his family members have been talked back to by my grandma....lol If its something bad you said, it goes to "your daddy's enemies" if its something funny, it goes to "all the people in your father's house"...lol

    Then number 16 is so popsie. Tht thing can be very vexing. You'll almost be asleep like this, you'll just hear your name, you rush to the sitting room and he says "get me a pillow" or "bring me the remote" bear in mind that the remote is just like 2 steps away o and if you stretch well enough sef, you will reach it.

    whew! God bless our parents.

    My mum had taken a pot of soup to her shop so my elder brother and cohorts wouldn't eat out of it. She's so guilty of some of the 'offences' listed above. Unfortunately, I am exhibiting traits of some of those charateristics too......lol

  17. Hahahahahahahahahahahaha I so hated going to the market with my mum. She would slash the price of an item by over 70% and call it good bargaining. My prayers were always directed to the gods of the ground that I may just be swallowed up at those moments but guess what her bargaining worked...sometimes.

    And of course the #igbarun #iforun #igbati episodes. Step on water poured by people on the road and you'll hear gbosa from behind. Till date when I walk on the road I side-step wherever I see wet ground except if wetness was caused by rain.

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.

#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

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

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.
