5 Things About My Past Week You Should Know.





Hey lovelies. No, this past week wasn't unusually eventful, except for the fact that he who makes my heart race & my feet tingle & my life sweeter, was in town (Oh, the joy!...) everything else was pretty normal. Yet as I sit in bed and ponder on the week ahead, I'm reminded of the week before and a few things happened that you might find interesting. 


1. Screaming with my back on the ground, in the middle of the road, at 6am, at what has been the scariest moment in my entire life. Guys, I've been on extremely turbulent planes, I've been on a flight that practically turned over nearly pouring us out of our seats as we looked death in the face, I've heard the voices and seen the shadows of armed robbers in my home, I've slept under the stairs overnight in a remote building with a hundred giant rats (shared this on the blog), yet nothing comes close to Wednesday morning when I went for a 6am jog. 
       I found myself surrounded by 3 growling dogs who were threatening to tear me to pieces. You really never know how strong you are until that's the only option you have. I kicked at them and tried to scare them away, but when they didn't back off and I found myself with my back on the floor, kicking at them, screaming for help, grabbing sand from the ground and throwing into their eyes, I knew I was in for it. They were a bit taken aback by the fight I put up so they kept hesitantly retreating and then lunging again towards me. At that moment when three of them finally charged at me, amidst screams I covered my face with my arms, I had already resigned my body to being dog food. Somewhere at the back of my mind I thought so no more short dresses again? Then miraculously what seemed like a lifetime away, I heard someone else scream and I opened my eyes to see a man brandishing a stick at them till they were chased away. Whew! That was close. Let's thank God that they were wild local dogs and not Caucasians, I'd be dead by now! Oh, I've still got bruises on my back and my butt from when I fell on the ground and was dragging my body away from them. It was only when I got home that I noticed I even cracked my phone screen. 



2. Fashion designing is certainly not my calling. My friend and blog reader, Chocolate has recently opened a fashion outfit (Julian's Place) and some days ago I visited her showroom. She and her workers were designing a dress for someone and they needed ideas. I gave them what I thought was a brilliant idea and they allowed me to use some pins and fabric to show them what I meant. In my head it was awesome but when I actually practicalized it, that design was looking like something a 3 year old did. I finished and stepped back to reveal my "work of art" only to see four disappointed and confused pairs of eyes looking at the dress and back at me... I was soooo embarassed.


3. I got propositioned by a man in the presence of his wife. He casually asked me to follow them home and shag him. I was aware that they're a very "cool" couple, they've got five kids but are still smoking hot and she looks more like his side chic than his wife. No offense to wives in general but she looks/dresses/acts like a girlfriend (I can't explain that further). But I didn't know they were that cool... When he asked, my eyes immediately strayed to her and when I saw her smile encouragingly, my palms began to sweat. I smiled sheepishly and nope'd my way out of there. 


4. Someone called me and said "Is this Nwando? Thelma?". "Yes" I said. "Ok, I got your number from the Internet, I am calling you for a relationship". He said. "Huh? *click*". I hung up. LOL. I do get quite a lot of weird phone calls, my number is on the blog after all...


5. Oh, this is for you to tell me the 'memorables' about your past week. I can't possibly be the only one who had weird experiences...

  2. "...so no more short dresses again...". Hahaha. Wereee.

    Attended a wedding last weekend and was practically shocked to see almost all the young guys (including my friends) who are married, had *forgotten* their wedding rings at home. I've seen few do this, but this time around it was overwhelming. And if you see the way I dressed...I was ready to pluck apples. Only for all these ndi akpambos to come and block someone's destiny. Me that hates competition with passion. Mtcheww.

  4. Stating the economy is biting very hard is putting out the obvious but this past week, it was as if I did something to invite financial requests from people I couldn't say no to and all requests were attached to something important - to complete opening of a small business (she is owed salary by her former employer), to complete house-rent (he is owed 4 months salary), part of bill for a c-section (for a baby who was already dead in the womb - very pathetic case of a Nurse's negligence), a dear relative who needed some money to complete the purchase of a bus to start a transport business with (he is 39 this and hopes with this business, he would be able to raise some money, get his own apartment and start a family in some months)........I hope the list doesn't continue this week.

    Where do I even start from?

  8. Sorry Nwando. Just like there are mad kings, there are mad dogs everywhere.

    Interestingly, I finally 'met' a girl I really like....

    More interestingly, she's still playing hide and seek....

    I hope I do not finally lose interest.

    P.S: Dear Memphis, you have to acquire the skill for a 'hostile takeover'. You shouldn't cower to bullies.

    1. Lol. Ironic it is, as you are about to 'lose interest' and you're telling Memphis to 'takeover'.
      Chimezie, don't lose interest. Please press on, she might be worth it after all.

  10. I applied to this company I'd been eyeing for over a year now and although my self esteem was almost eroded at my current job, I went for the interview and aced it with flying colours. I was called to pick my offer letter last week and I was given a level higher than the one I applied for and my annual remuneration is 6 times what I'm currently earning. I was numb and in shock for like 3 days after I got the letter, I couldn't believe it!

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

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!

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 fiancΓ©? 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.
