Mr Right Now (Youngen Edition).

I couldn't believe I was actually googling "modern urban acronyms". You know, the ones the new generation use. Generation Y, they're called atink? But you can't blame me; after all, our chats are filled with wwyd, ikr, idk, ootd, Fml, ftfy, tl;dr, idgaf, ily et al and I'm rather lost. 

Worst still, is this feeling of silliness as I try to keep up with the new slangs and the nonchalant coolness only the truly young and hip have mastered. I totter between being myself and acting my age, but then suddenly feeling positively archaic I sway towards being hip and cool, in order to sound hip and cool... 

But then why do I even bother? I mean, he couldn't have thought we'd be agemates when he approached me. I certainly don't look younger than my age, unfortunately. So since he knows I'm older, why can't I allow myself to act older? Without cringing? 

In any case lets approach the issue at hand. After weeks of flirting/chatting/talking, he says he would like to take me somewhere nice, and I said yes *covers face*. I've been out with all kinds, but this right here, this makes me nervous!

See I know it's going no where. He's great, he's really cute, we have nice conversations and interesting chats and I think he's a genuinely nice lad. Truth be told I quite like him and it's obviously mutual. But he's certainly no Mr Right. 

What say you, to have fun with this much younger (but very legal, don't worry) Mr Right Now, or turn him down while I wait for the heart-desired Mr Right, or a semblance of him? 

Any harm in having a bit of fun with a younger guy? Would you or would you not, bearing in my that it's only temporary? Should I go on the date, just for the fun of it, or should I respect my old age and jejely turn him down? I need your help right now!

Oh, and for the oldies, just in case you were wondering:

ikr, i know right
idk, I don't know
ootd, outfit of the day
Fml, fuck my life 
ftfy, fixed that for you 
tl;dr, too long; didn't read 
idgaf, I don't give a f*ck
ily, I love you (so he claims. Haha!)
Btw, by the way (eg. btw that picture above is exactly how I feel when I think about going on dates with him)


  1. #1) Go out on a (mutual) date with him and you might hear him ask for the *next level* relationship.

    #2) Don't go out on a (mutual) date and spend the better part of the next couple of weeks regretting why you fretted over nothing.

    Both cases, you seem sort of afraid. "...I've been out with all kinds, but this right here, this makes me nervous!...". Lol. All I can say is, you MUST choose #1 or #2, and since this situation is alien to you, we may not be able to help much but wish you well. IJE OMA! :D

  2. That picture is too funny when I imagine you with the small bobo. Please life is too short go and have fun so far you both know what you want out of it. Remember to keep us posted

  3. Tôt #ootd meant "one of those days"...?
    So #ibdm (I've been deceiving myself).

  4. I had a few youngens back then, asking for serious relationship. LOL
    #if I hear say I try am!!

    Be sure to act your age if you do decide to hang out with the lad. Besides they can spend to impress #sti


    1. Tôt #sti meant sexually transmitted infection???

    2. At the rate this is going shorthand writing will be massively promoted in the present ministries. Someone has already started talking about manufacturing PENCILS. Na so this kin thing de start. Were nu wanyo biko.

    3. Someone, please translate "Were nu wanyo"



    4. @ Sasha, don't mind me o, just messing with abbrev., as well

  5. Go ahead and have the time of your life. But let the kid know the fun has an expiry date.


    1. Jesu! Kon before you get me arrested for statutory rape (not like there's going to be any carnality) he is not a kid ooooooooh!

  6. Go on date with a guy I (obviously) look older than he is? No way.... I'd be so embarrassed and self-conscious the date wouldn't turn out well.

    Meanwhile, all these acronyms/abbreviations are getting out of hand. Some even creep into official emails. Imagine a Manager using a u in place of you.


  7. Been around the block and still going round again I see.

  8. No please. I think you may end up irritated after the date... but children of nowadays nor dey fear again o.

  9. I thought I just read a post on Tania and wizkid, and u were wondering what she sees in him, I guess this post is conflicting. Anyways, whatever rocks your boat mon bebe, as someone previous stated life is too short. Enjoy

    1. At least you got the point behind the Tania & Wizkid post. Thank God somebody did!

    2. Wow! Now I understand what that post and fuss on BN was all about. Thank you very much.

  10. The most important thing is to be happy. Life is too short to always live by peoples dictates. I will not feel comfortable hanging out with younger men. Shame go nearly kill me. I will feel everyone is looking at me.

  11. Deepends on how much younger jor.

  12. Please go on the date and be yourself.i dont see the point in learning all the acronyms of the next generation to be able to relate with them. Thelma are you a Puma now? Lol.

  13. Happiness is all that matters in such circumstances. I am considering dating a guy 16years older than me, divorcee with no children. God help me lol. 2016 goals just got real......

    1. I don't think 16 years is too much except you're like 60, then he'll be 76. I know quite a number of girls who married guys almost 20 years older. Most of them seem really happy. I also know girls who can't date any guy less than 10-15 years older than them, cos they can't stand the immaturity of the youngens.

  14. She goes on a fun date,she laughs so hard and even cracks a rib at his silly jokes,he pours her more wine while she drinks herself to stupor.she feels tired and stands up to go home.
    He drops her off at home after giving her a great f**k in the car.
    Home now? she Rinses her mouth of all the germs she must have acquired while kissing him,she scrubs her p**sy and rids her skin of his touch,she drinks up a bottle of whisky and cries herself to sleep.
    she wakes up the next day and tries to convince herself it was all a dream.Her phone beeps and she reads a text from him "It was nice seeing you yesterday hun,can we do it again today?"(HOLLYWOOD PART 2 LOADING).
    (jobless me)

    1. Hmmmmm. Issorai. Please all ye writers in the house send in submissions nau. Stop wasting your talent!

  15. If you're worry is that you look older than him then you don't have a problem. At my age I look younger than most of the girls I date, even if I'm older. And it doesn't seem to bother anyone. What you be worried about is his character, what kind of person is he? Does he act his age? etc Plus if its obvious from the way he behaves that you're a cougar then I think you should think well before moving forward.

  16. 'Plus if its obvious from the way he behaves that you're a cougar then I think you should think well before moving forward'.
    That's all you need to consider.

  17. I think it depends on d age gap. There's no harm going on a casual date.

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?

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…

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!
