Those Things You Were Doing...

You see, when my gateman started to give me attitude because he's a big boy (dude, if you're too big to be a gateman then go look for bank job. Gerraraherrrre!) and I couldn't quite take that walk to the junction to get air time, then I messaged you and you immediately responded, I was quite shocked when I got the VTU alert for 2k credit. My eyes stung and it was a strong indicator that really you have come to relax and become very lax, too comfortable perhaps, and you no longer feel the need to do the things you used to do. 

I remember days when you were hot on my trail, when I wouldn't even ask and have my phone bombarded with air time running into tens of thousands, and then the days I actually deigned to ask, I'd get double of that. 

I remember the days, not too long ago actually, when I'd be minding my business and then get credit alerts from my bank, with follow up texts; Go spoil yourself this weekend. 

I remember the days you used to open the car door, open the door to the lounge and let me walk ahead, you'd treat me like a queen. 

And those days you would send me sweet texts before I wake just so that they'd be the first thing I see when I wake. 

Speaking of texts, Chinwe recounted to me how when her boo was toasting her he used to send sweet texts early every morning but the minute she 'agreed' and started dating him, the early morning texts suddenly stopped. She said she called him one day and said "Bia nna, you know those texts you were sending when you were asking me out, continue sending them


But isn't that the truth? Why do you think it's ok to stop doing the things that made me fall for you? Is my reciprocation which you vehemently thirsted for now reason enough to stop?

I know it's not out of the ordinary to relax or for things to change, I'm not a child, I'm neither naive nor idealistic.

However Mr Man, those things you used to do, you better continue doing them. Because, where you stopped, someone else is willing to start from. And you see, if it made me fall for you, what's to say it wouldn't make me fall for him? 

But we don't want that to happen now, do we?

So dear men, the little things you used to do that made her trip, made her fall for you, you can like to keep doing them, ok?

A woman's affection should not be taken for granted. If anything, it's even then that you should intensify the efforts, keep her happy and glad she chose you. Don't relax because you think you "have arrived". 

I'm just here in bed wondering why men think it's ok to stop doing the things they were doing when they were breaking sweat trying to get a lady? Answers anyone? Who else feels as miffed as I do? Talk to me...

On this note, I shall try to get some shut eye. Meanwhile don't you just hate traveling with aviophobes? The man to my right wouldn't stop praying, and at any slight turbulence he would break out in gospel songs. I wanted to thump his head with something hard! The minute we started to descend he all but went on his knees in thanksgiving. Don't get me wrong, I'm always grateful for journey mercies but people like this just make it very uncomfortable and unpleasant. 

Meanwhile see this guy who was on my flight! I don't know who he is but his attitude was as loud as his appearance. He got on board making the most outrageous of demands. I wish I could get a frontal picture of him, he had on his head a crown, he held a golden walking stick in one hand and then that other thing in the older, gold shades and plenty plenty gold-plated jewelry. God created sha....


  1. Hahaha,some people are very dramatic,he looks like muma gee's husband from the side though.thank God for journey mercies.

  2. Lols, the dude looks like a poster child for "Coming to America" movie

  3. buahaha @ last picture... iLike. you should have got a frontal.

  4. LOL, He looks like a tushed up Mr. Bones

    thank God for the safe trip T

  5. What an outrageous dressing, I have always wondered why men stop doing the things they did when they were chasing whoever they love, it's a mystery that I can't seem to unravel, only the men themselves can explain why, Steele, Memphis and Uyi over to you guys ohh cos I wanna know yy ohhhh. BTW, where is eesah? Eesah come back here ohhh.

  6. Lol. People stop doing a lot of things at the initial stages because they have gotten their partner...maybe part of see finish. That kind of sustainability takes a lot of work.

    As for people with a fear of flying- sometimes you are better off talkig about random things to distract them. These people used to irritate me in the past till i experienced barotrauma for the first time in flightdescent and the woman mext to me held my hand and rubbed my back when the tears of pain wouldn't stop.

  7. "...I'm...wondering why men think it's ok to stop doing the things they were doing when they were breaking sweat trying to get a lady?...".

    That's why it's called *carwash* Tee, no vex. C'est la vie. :D

    1. Biaa Memphis which car them Dey wash ohh? Am. Watching you in 5D.

  8. Hmmm....Edo men are particularly fond of doing the above....flipping on you at the first sign that you like them....someone that was all over you initially would suddenly be acting 'am the boss' with funny attitudes

    In the past I unconsciously took it as a challenge to get them back to that initial stage which led to a lot of drama....but now....i am a whole lot you flip on me.....i simply take myself from that space by ignoring time abeg

    1. Lol! Uyi is so coming for you..

    2. Hey hey! Favor. Don't get me started okay?

      But u really don't have to generalize now! Hian

  9. @Sunshine.Lols.......shei?....

    But am sure Uyi knows I wasn't talking about him.....Edo Men....specifically the ones I have come across or heard about from my friends.

    As an aside @Sunshine....all the loving up that you and Ruthy are just watching.....issokai

    1. U dey mind them... I just dey use one eye look them. I tell sunshine make she even share d pin, e be like say she wan take am do business. As she dey charge 1k before sending the pin. Lol... smh!

  10. Men, and their wahala. Big hissssss.

    The guy in the picture is feeling like king of zamunda, abi king of the jungle.

    Very funny sight. Did he fly biz class abi he come dey struggle with economy flexi. Lol

  11. Its called the see finish syndrome. Dude is probably an African American visiting the homeland for the first time. I bet he was told to dress up like Akeem to oppress the African tribesmen lmao

  12. I don't understand... Wait, so I will woo you and then continue 'wooing' after you have been wooed?
    English language didn't mistake when they created Present, Past and Past participle. Lol

    Please leave us jorr. Its like prizing a goods in the market and after buying it, you are still prizing your 'property'.

  13. @Kabuoy,A whole 1thousan Naira.....Oluwa oh.......Sunshine naa sharp business baby fah.....levaraging on OPP(other people's pin) and you paid?

    Why am I asking sef,i trust would have found another way around it

    1. Emi! Sharp gal! Pay ke? Ti n ba Gbo pe?! Lmaooo!

  14. Maybe someone threw away the 'garnishings' that were the reasons for the wooing in the first place. #Justsaying

  15. Uyi though, Lol. Why wont you keep wooing her even after you have won her heart? Wait there and watch someone else start wooing your wooed. O ghe meh gi vuuum n'anya. lol

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.
