The Dollar Today.

Yes people, $1 is almost N500. 
I'm just going to leave this here and act like everything's ok and the quality of my life isn't being affected by this f*ckery. 
I went for a church meeting earlier this week and the pastor's wife shared with us an incident that occured the previous day. She sent someone to go change $50 for her and a few minutes later the person returned with N22,000. She said she refused to collect the money and asked them to go and return it. 
In her words; "while collecting that amount of money might have felt good, I had to refuse it. I refuse to accept this situation. I refuse to accept that kind of money. In the late 70s I was going to the U.S. and I still have my old passports. It was a dollar to a Naira. I can show you if you want to see. It was N9.99kobo to $1. And I may look stupid to you but I am not going to settle until the naira returns to what it used to be. Until the naira returns to its value of yesteryears".  

Hmm, once I might h…

And When She's Gone He's Free To Do Whatever. But When He's Gone, She's Stumped.

Sometime last year a facebook friend and former school mate of mine lost his wife. Very young lady, still in her 20s. 
It was so sad to watch. Dude often posted pictures of his deceased wife that made us all part of his pain. We sympathized and empathized with him. Some of us even cried. 
Can you then imagine the shock many felt when barely months later, this guy gets married to another chic? What was even more preposterous is that the new wife was a friend of his late wife. 
Shock and disgust don't adequately convey how I felt. 
But guess what, life went on. He's living freely with the wife he married few months after his wife died and his reason; the children need a mother. 
And that makes it ok!
But when a woman loses her husband NOBODY ever says the children need a father. (And on the rare occasion that they do, they tell her that her late husband's brother is now her husband). 
In fact if a widow even dreams of marrying another man two or three years after her late husband&#…

Before I Sleep...

I'm sure everyone thinks I'm crazy. First, just like they said he would, he left me for someone else, someone better suited for him, someone who met his family's approval. And although it took him five years, he finally left me. 
What you need to understand is that it didn't come to me as a big shock. Bolade has been my best friend and my everything for the last five years, but I knew the second his mind began to wander. 
Everyone thought I should curse him out, everyone expected me to hate him. People were waiting for the tears, the bitterness, the baleful, angry ex-girlfriend memes on my social media pages, but I disappointed them. Many thought it was just an act but the truth is that I didn't hate Bolade. I dont know what I felt, really. Just some cold, empty vacuum. Numb. 
Anyways he proposed to his smallie. Did it hurt me? Hell, it nearly killed me! I was so broken that I couldn't leave the house for days. I avoided everyone and I started smoking again. That …

It's Not About You. If Your Words Are Not Going To Comfort the Grieving Person Then Just Shut up!

So I want to talk about sympathy by Nigerians from the standpoint of a Nigerian.
Most Nigerians SWEAR that they're the most sympathetic of all the creatures God made but some people are just downright insensitive.
These last couple of months, so many tragic things have happened such as 2 of my friends losing a parent each, my amputation and my friend's father's shop burning and in light of these events, I've seen various forms of sympathy by various people.
I noticed that there are actually people who come to sympathize genuinely and others who come to "see,confirm and spread" the bad news.
Of the above two categories, there are some people who just don't know when to talk and when to shut the hell up. I'll give examples.
A: I lost my mum.
B: Omg. I'm sorry. Wow. God please protect my loved ones oh. 


Uhmmm, what the hell is that? If you want to pray for your loved one, do it at your own time yeah? Because I don't understand whether such persons don&#…

Dear Thelma (Is It Possible For a Good Girl To Be Sooo Good In Bed?)

TTB family Is it possible for a good girl to be so very good in bed? Like extremely skillfully good?
Dont get me wrong, i dont judge. I asked her her body count cos i want to know what am dealing with. I also told her mine. She said she's only slept with 2 people before me and she can even count the number of times she has had sex. We started dating over a year ago but she was saying she's celibate, no sex until marriage etc. I didnt want that but i agreed cos i love her. It was she that suggested we start having sex. Theres no real issue but i'm.confused. 
Sorry to sound raw but when this girl gives me head she does it like a PRO. What am trying to say is she is an expert. I have been with girls n' i've good sex/head but i remove cap for this babe. It takes a lot for me not to nut in her mouth (which she dont mind btw). Ok nau the sex nko? There is no trick she doesnt know. This girl rides me like a porn star. And She know all the different tricks like clenching her…

Freeze: Mike Murdock The Rude, Obnoxious, Bragging Clown...

"My dear gullible Nigerians the bible says prove all things and hold on to what is good, ask what your church does with the tithe and offering you pay, it’s your God given right with instructions from the bible!! My ministry is to set you free from the shackles of yahoo preachers! In June 2012 Creflo Dollar was arrested in an alleged attack on his daughter, in accordance with the Fayette County, Georgia, Sheriff’s Office. The charges were dropped in January 2013 after he attended anger management classes.I once walked out of a Mike Murdok sermon because I couldn’t deal with his bragging…… apparently, I wasn’t the only one who noticed how rude and obnoxious this clown was. He was asking for a preacher’s seed or some joke, unfortunately for him, my parents didn’t educate me so I could be stupid enough, to fund the glamorous, jet set lifestyles of these jokers, while poor people lie dying of hunger, poverty and sickness. No wonder MIKE Murdock loves Nigeria so much, he knows how gul…

Question of The Day.

LOL. Be honest. 

I'm a 5Star Chic! (Please Read)

Just when I thought everything was wrong in the world, I tiny piece of irrelevant news goes and brightens my day. 
So here's what happened. I stumbled upon the ad for a Women's prayer meeting holding at This Present House in The Dome, Lekki Phase 1 this morning and I promptly decided to attend and start my day on a positive note. 
The last few weeks have been topsy turvy, physically and mentally, and maybe emotionally too. Last night I went to bed reminding myself some of God's promises for me and I just resigned myself to fate, hopefully fate would be a great outcome!
In any case this morning I requested an uber. As we approached the premises he asked how long I've been using Uber, I told him it's been a while, over a year. He seemed surprised. He said to me that I've got 5 stars on Uber. I didn't even know what that was or what it meant. Well apparently, drivers are not the only ones who get rated. Drivers actually rate their passengers too. LOL. He said all…

Dear Thelma (My Fiancé Is Losing Interest, What Should I Do?)

Please I've been dating my bf for 5years now. We are planning our wedding against december. I love him and he loves me too but presently i think his love has diminished as he has limited all communications with me to just pleasantries or when he needs to find out something. I've tried to find out where the problem is to no avail. When i complain he's nonchalant and says nothing has changed to him and this is just the new him or that he's just busy. It feels like I am the only one making efforts to communicate. Initially it was quite a bother to me but now I'm getting used to the new way of life though I'm still a bit bothered as this is not what i want in my home. I'm just so confused. I know I'm not alone in this. Anyone experienced this before? How did you handle it? Pray tell. Thelma please can you make this a post. thanks

About Last Night. (The Insatiable Nature Of Men).

Last night was date night and we wanted to do something different. I have a soft spot for Thistle bar, or maybe just a soft spot for their food. Either way I picked that out as the starting point for the night. Friday nights at Thistle bar are always vibrant, very electric. The lifeband easily outdoes even the most qualified DJs, everyone seems happy and lets their guards down. The athmosphere is serene and the people are usually laid back and down to earth. 
While looking around at the happy people, one particular couple caught my eyes. They were just one among the unusually numerous married couples that came out last night. These ones got my attention because the man is obviously much older, somewhere between mid to late 40s. While his wife, that pretty young thing, should be about 25. She looked like the perfect trophy wife, tall but not too tall, slender yet curvy, pretty face and an authentic member of #teamlightskin. I just imagined what it must feel like to be an older man and w…

Dear Thelma (...When Your Man's Friends are a Negative Influence and a Threat To Your Happiness)

Tee I remember one post you did long long time ago about when the "other woman" is a man, something like when the threat to your marriage is not another woman/mistress but your husband's friend/s. I am in that situation although we are not married yet. Bae is a fantastic man, nice and loving and faithful to me, never given me a reason to suspect him of cheating. He is not in any way perfect but the main challenge I face with him these days is his friends, mind you these guys are all married. 
Have you noticed that the married men are the more notorious ones? It sounds strange but it is so true, I have seen a lot, both from my fiancé's friends and from my colleagues, in laws and friends. Married men are the ones more likely to have one night stand with young girls almost everyday or the week, they and their friends swap girls as if it's tomtom, some even go as far as having orgies where they and their friends freely f*ck these girls at the same time. These days mar…

Random Musings; Sleeping With a "Cuddler" When You're Not.

Its one aspect of romantic relationships I find very complicated. What happens when you're not a cuddler ie you do not like to cuddle; you like your own space on the bed, you freak out at the thought of someone's breath on your skin and you're uncomfortable breathing on someone else's. You get sweaty just thinking about your movements being restricted and when you're both in bed you can't stop overthinking things; is he really ok with my head on his arm or is he just acting in order to be polite? How long until his arm begins to ache? What if he wants to turn but can't because my head is on his chest? What if i want to turn over but i can't because he's holding me tight? And yes when you eventually need to turn, you wait until he's deep in sleep and then you try to gently move away from him or remove his loving arm from your now stiff torso. And then he stirs and holds you tighter, and closer. Sigh!
Sometimes I just pretend to be deep asleep and …

Her Wedding Day!

I thought I'd share this story from a slightly older sis of mine. I asked her randomly what the most underwhelming feeling she had ever experienced was and I was not expecting her response. She said "my wedding day and night." I burst out laughing and asked her to explain! Here is her brief synopsis. #Enjoy 😄
 "I did all the work myself, I took on a major part of the planning to save costs. Major mistake! From the food menu, cakes, the flowers, decor etc… I was fire fighting with vendors and his family over how many guests they could bring even though none of the family members "making noise" contributed a dime. I had to beg and plead and apologise to a million people I didn't offend. By the time the day came, I ended up not having enough time to get my own self ready things were so rushed and we ran super late. I ended up having to just throw my hair up quickly, throw on the ugly wedding dress that my fiancé chose because he didn’t like the dress I wa…

Dear Thelma. (She Has Zero Maternal Instincts. Is This a Red Flag?)

I know many females are here and your opinions will be worth it. I know the woman I'm about to marry for we were friends long before we started dating. She is beautiful, nice, domesticated, a good christian and very hardworking. However she lacks a certain warmth most women have, I really don't care about that as her good sides are many, except that she does not seem to have any nurturing or maternal instincts at all. My gf will rather work on Saturday and Sunday than stay at home to look after her sis' kids. She is generally uncomfortable around children and you can never see her get emotional over babies as most ladies do. When her friends get pregnant instead of congratulating or admiring them it's like she feels pity for them. Last year she got pregnant and although I tried to give her every reason to keep it, she went ahead and aborted it even though we were already planing to get married. Her excuse was that she cannot have a child outside wedlock. Some people sa…

#BlogReaderAsks. (Will I Love Him Forever?)

My first love got married this weekend and my heart is broken. I haven't felt this kind of pain since we went our separate ways 5 years ago, my chest hurts from the pain and I have no idea what to do.
This relationship was the best I ever had, I loved him with everything I had, it was my first real relationship yet he didn't exactly ask me to be his girlfriend, we just kinda talked and talked until we were so close it was more like a relationship. He became my best friend in the whole world, my confidant, adviser, mentor, etc. I still don't know why it ended but it did and he moved on with a girl who was his "friend" just 3 weeks later. That alone tore my heart to shreds and I was unable to do anything with myself for almost a month. I remember that time like it was yesterday, I just went thru the motions daily - wake up, do my chores, go to work, work till very late, come home, and sleep, everyday for almost one month. I lost weight, life lost its meaning and eve…

Ladies! Do You Want To Be Woken Up With an Orgasm?

Ladies, so what do you think about an alarm clock designed to wake you up with a mind blowing orgasm or orgasmSSS? 😅😂😆💦🙈

The Little Rooster alarm clock, a small plastic miracle, combines an alarm clock with a vibrator so you can be woken up with an orgasm. The alarm clock is worn inside your panties and placed strategically *cough cough*. And then when the clock strikes the time you set your alarm, instead of making the conventional shrill annoying noise that wakes you up with a scowl on your face á la bedside/phone alarm clocks, the Little Rooster simply starts to vibrate to bring you out of your slumber. The vibrations automatically increase until you wake up and turn it off. 
What a superb way to wake up, eh? 😊😊😊
So ladies tell me, would you want one of these? 
Come let's talk.

Personally, no I won't want (nor need) one, but I think this is a GREAT invention, so many women cannot cum through sex or are generally unable to achieve orgasms. I often have a number of female …

What I Wanted To Be...

Last week I made a new friend. Well I happen to be 'seeing' her brother so we knew of each other but we'd never met or spoken. She was coming into town for an interview and her brother asked me to sort out her logistics and possibly keep her company. I paid her a visit at her hotel room, just so I could tell him yes when he asked if I went to see his sister, like I knew he would. I did that to fulfil all righteousness but I ended up falling in friendship!
Have you ever met someone and instantly hit it off? Oh wow! We met for the first time and what I'd planned to be a ten-minute visit lasted until the next day, yeah I spent the night LOL. Same thing the next day, after her interview we went out on a girly date, did some shopping and the back to the hotel room for some gossip, girl chat and a slumber party. 
During this time she asked "Why aren't you in Nollywood?".
Very weird question, right? But I started laughing because you see, I'd wanted to be an ac…

I Feel So Guilty After Sex, BUT I Just Can't Stop Needing It!

(Speaking of #Change) I need change too. I am a very matured adult. How do I change from always needing sex. I have fasted. prayed. belonged to different departments in church to keep my mind and soul busy and distracted from this sex of a thing. The more I try, the more my mind and emotions get trapped. What do I do? I honestly need this change. Each time I do it, I go into depression. For months. I will not come out of the guilt. I need change. What do I do?anonymous mood activated

Dear Thelma... (Is It Ok To Date My Sister's Ex?)

Please I need your advise. When my sister was in college she was in a very serious relationship for the four years although we never met him because they schooled abroad. They broke up right after college and she went on to do her masters and then moved back to nigeria. Her ex stayed back in England and they somehow lost touch. That was a long time ago and my sis is now married with three kids. In 2013 her ex added me in facebook and it was just to say hello to his former girlfriends babysis and for over a year it was just hi and hello on facebook. In 2014 I was going through a bad time and I posted a quote on FB, he reached out to me asking if I'm okay and I decided to confide in him as a big brother figure, that is how we went from hello-hi to more regular chats. Soon after that we began to talk on the phone and we started getting close, I told my sis that I met her ex on fb and we chat once in a while and she was indifferent sha.       At the beginning of 2015 he moved back to l…
