I’m thinking of a good punch line for this but I can’t think of one, I just know that the fitness people say walk. Walk to your bus stop instead of taking a bike, walk to your friends place, and walk to the market. But who walking epp abeg? Here are five reasons why I’ll rather not walk in Lagos.

1. CLIMATE CHANGE: I’m definitely sure I’m not the only one that has noticed the “can melt heat” in Lagos. As such, before you even walk 5 minutes you’ll be sweating like a Christmas goat and a threatening headachewill be in sight. No, thank you.

2. LAGOSIANS IN CENTRAL PLACES ARE VULGAR: So who here has had the Opportunity to walk across Yaba, or Mushin, all those places with plenty mechanics or traders? Who here has had the opportunity to hear those thick accent shout “ Fine geh” “ Come let me suck you” “You set well well oh” “ My daughter” all accompanied by very lewd stares and arm dragging? I’ll rather not.

3. NO WALKWAYS: And if you’re not careful, the maniac okada driver can just hit you like a tennis ball, straight into the gutter!

4. LONER STATUS: It’s common knowledge that walking is much fun when it’s with someone, but when you live, eat, breath and walk around yourself, what’s a girl to do?

5. TIME CONSUMING: When you’re as lazy and impatient as I am, with a love for indoor spaces, the only thing not time consuming is whatever you’re doing in the comfort of your house, or office, or party. This means you want to get out of the road as soon as possible and walking is too slow for that. 

Who here’s with me?

I'd like to say I'm with you but I do love to walk, then again it all depends on where in Lagos one is walking...

  1. Hahahahah @ "come let me suck you"

    Learn to enjoy the comedy in the comments, thick accent and funny ways of the peeps on the streets.

    On the contrary, Lagos is not always hot. I think Lagos is hot only 4 or 5 months of the year. We have alot of rain and then Harmattan in Dec/Jan.


  2. For a summer,August has been pretty cool. I get those cat-comments too and sometimes I literally laugh out.
    I do a lot of walking and I mean a lot! But it's fun for me cos 1) it's exercising and 2) I've meet some cool people along the
    I'll miss walking cos I'll be getting my automobile very soon (epp me say Amen with faith)

  3. I totally agree with you iyanu, but still, I so love to walk really, especially with my ears plugged listening to music and at the same time taking Note of my environment.

  4. Walking is fun naw. You get to soak in the environment and depending on the weather, appreciate better the cooling effects of nature's breeze. You do have valid points though. I guess for guys walking is less distasteful.

  5. 😂😂😂
    "NO WALKWAYS: And if you’re not careful, the maniac okada driver can just hit you like a tennis ball, straight into the gutter!"

    You don't know the half of it!!! What I have experienced in the hands of those crazy okada men ehn!!!! Chai!

    1. They think it's their right you leave the 'walk'way for them.

      "you no dey hear horn?"

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.
