The Sexiest Thing Ever!

And so that's how I was trying to cross to the other side of the road when he honked to get my attention. I wasn't sure it was my attention trying to be got until he wound the car glass down and bared even white teeth in a charming smile. Even more charming was that he knew better than to sit in the car and talk to me, when he saw me approach him, he turned off the ignition and alighted. "I'm so sorry to bother you. Are you related to Aisha" he asked. I'm like dude, is this a new pick up line? I shake my head no. 

"Oh... I'm Tayo by the way". I tell him my name and he asks for my number. I give it to him. 

"I would call you soon, I hope that's okay?" He asks, and that smile again! Yeah it's ok, that's why I gave you the number, no?

As I got into my car and drove away the strangest thing occurred to me. Strange because ordinarily that's the first thing one should notice about Tayo, but something about the boylish laugh, the big smile, the charm and confidence... Something about all of that made it easy to not notice that Tayo looks like he fought with the proverbial tiger. Yes people! Oyo-style tribal marks, deeply etched into the sides of his face. At least SIX on each side. And what's more, he's light skinned which makes the deep dark slashes very distinct!

Hmmmm... Ok can I admit that I've wondered a couple of times if Tayo is merely the driver and not the owner of the LR4? Sorry nau, but the thought crossed my mind a couple of times, it's not everyday, if ever, that you meet someone like 'that' with swag like that... It's pretty unlikely; he's A-Ok and seemingly polished. And damnit guys, confidence is sexy af! You might be seeing the head of an ancient Oyo portrait but as far as that guy is concerned, he is Puff freaking Daddy-Sean John-P-Diddy!


Tell me honestly, would very pronounced tribal marks be a factor in deciding to date someone? Are you indifferent or would it be an issue? 
       Do you have tribal marks, do you think it's ever affected your chances of getting something or someone you wanted? Let's talk. 

*best believe that the first question I'll ask when he calls me is "what do you do?...*


  1. I won't lie I used be put off by hideous tribal marks when I was a lot younger. For some reason I felt that those who had them were wicked people. Then as fate would have it I grew up and now some of the best friends I have are scarred badly but it's only on the surface. They are really beautiful souls. Now I have a soft spot for the marked ones, as I fondly call them.

    Oh, and yes confidence is key not only in sexual attraction but if you want to excel in any area of life. But we often mistake arrogance for confidence, they are totally different. Arrogance is when you selfishly try to manipulate people for your own gains because you feel you're superior to them. Confidence on the other hand is the belief in your self worth, the guy you met knows and believes that he's a great person and you'd be lucky to have him as a friend. His marks don't define him

  2. I don't like tribal marks ohhhh,m.always turned off by them so it's a nay for me,and I have never dated someone with tribals before.

  3. You know there are some people two minutes with them you forget the obvious, so if he is charming like that , sexy, confident, he would be my GOOOOd FRIEND...Thelma, I just can't, may God forgive me. but then again if my hubby was with tribal mark er....Maybe I would have married him...but chai!

  4. I won't be attracted... And first things that defines my affection is attraction. Sorry, heavily-marked-girls, I'm just not that into you, nothing personal.

    But as friends... I don't think I would have problem with anyone. Marks or no marks.


    1. Memphis! And that's how you went on to break my heart! So I don't stand a chance because of my tribal marks? Okay! Loool

    2. Errm..dear Anon, I didn't mean it like fact I'm not sure I got Uyi's point.. :D

    3. See escape route, Memphis ohhh,chaiiii. God is watching in 5D

  5. It's a no no for me. Some parents are wicked o. Haba, the pain alone sef-kilode.

  6. Seal, anybody?
    If that guy is scarred from lupus, she sure doesn't act like he knows.
    And have you guys heard him talk *** dreamy look***... lol... there are many attractive features people can have that overshadow the seemingly obvious

  7. I don't think I can sha, God forgive me.

  8. I have a scar on the right side of my face as a result of a home accident , if you can't deal with it, then you are not worth my time

  9. Tribal mark???? Neah!!!

  10. Vivid tribal marks like the one you described is a no-no for me, but if its small, then no problem.

  11. I dated someone with "pele" the smaller single line marks. Till you know someone's story don't assume. One thing i never did was mention the marks after he told me how they came about- illiterate grandmother things. He was an interesting person - while his own scars were visible - a lot of others have none visible scars. For me it didnt affect my decision in terms of how to deal with him.

    If you cant accept the person as is, don't bother them or yourself. Keep it moving.

  12. All I can think of is, would this have been my fate if I had such tribal marks?

    1. It's really sad how we judge based on the surface. Marked people don't even have a clue what's happening to them at that age, in most cases they grow up and loath the ones responsible for the scars they were forced to carry for life.

    2. Epiphany, you spoke my mind.

      The most pleasant colleague I have had in my over a decade experience in the corporate world has tribal marks.

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.
