C'est Random...





So I was at a party yesterday and have you heard, I could have just reached over and squeezed Don Jazzy's big nose.

LOL. Yeah I'm star struck, I confess. 

So this place was running over with the wealthy, the monied, the 1%; the elite. For those few hours I forgot I was in a country that's severely depressed at the moment, these people might have 99 problems but money just isn't one. 

So I happened upon this conversation that has had me thinking all day. There's this youngish man that bought a house for his young girlfriend in Banana Island. His equally wealthy or possibly even wealthier friends weren't very happy about this. Like, you could have bought her a house in Lekki or VGC or even VI, but Banana Island? Isn't that rather overly excessive? Especially for someone so...... temporary?

And so yesterday someone finally confronted him; "Bia nwoke, what's this I'm hearing about you buying a house for a girl ('girl' said with contempt) in Banana Island? Why did you do that?" He asked. 

"O na e nye m obi uto". He replied. 

She makes me happy. 

That was all he said. Simply. Calmly. Peacefully. 

She makes me happy. 

Like that explains everything. Like that's more than enough reason. Like you can't put a price tag on happiness but if you could, a Banana Island property is a fair price. 

She makes me happy. 

And I wonder about it, I make a lot of people happy too! A number of my blog readers claim I make them happy. Some friends say I make them happy. A few others too. 

Well apparently I'm making the wrong people happy.

Sigh!

  1. Don't worry a time would come when the wrong people would become the right people.
    That's sweet though, a banana island property, issorai. All the people that I have made happy in my life can you see this.

    1. Uyi I beg to disagree. Great sex is not so hard to find, most men can get that from almost anywhere. Of course bedmatics is involved. But my dear, if it was about making a man happy in bed, a lot of us ladies would have mansions in Chelsea, Abu Dhabi and the Hamptons. I don't think it's love but I do think she touches his heart. When you're able to "move" a man, he can do things for you that would have people saying you jazzed him.

  16. As cute as all those might sound. Does the source of the wealth matter?

    Or is it "clean money dirty money how do you tell the difference" kind of thing?

    Do you people ever weep for the young girls whose lady parts are harvested and corpse dumped by the road side?

    Well, what do I know?

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…

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

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.

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 entrΓ©e comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrΓ©e 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!
