#CurrentSituation. Pissed AF!





My current situation is Double 4, I'm drinking a cold glass of Guinness, it's about 10.50pm and I'm not ready to go home so I decided to come and post this. πŸ˜•

I just saw the best movie I've seen in a while and yet I'm still seething. Yes, I'm freaking furious. So I spent all day out, got home at about 6pm and instead of being tired I was very restless, too restless to sit still. So I took a bath, changed my clothes and came to The Palms to see a movie. 

There was a premier holding at the movies today, with Nollywood people and entertainment industry people, and then some socialites. Then I spotted this handsome, tall, broad shouldered hunk of a man, part socialite, part actor, part Island big(ish) boy. He had a ton of people vying for his attention so I stood a safe distance away from him, and when the crowd around him thinned out, I approached him. He knew I was coming to meet him, we had locked eyes four or five times and he was aware of my presence, also aware that I'd been waiting to talk to him. Several people milled around him but he was alone at the time so that was my chance. 

I lurched towards him, arms outstretched, mouth gaping open in a huge smile; "My in law" I sing-sang as I made to embrace him

And this guy had the nerve to jump back as if I was coming towards him with an evil glare and a dagger. After staring at me curiously for a few seconds he offered a limp handshake. I shook it and walked away. 

Mad as hell!

I'm sure you're wondering if I'm mad literally. I assure you I'm not. The negro is actually my in law. I have called his wife and everybody to tell them that he is a ______ (Too many words but I have to respect him as per family so let me keep those words in my head)! I'm still reeling from the humiliation. 

Sorry, Mr Man, I didn't know different protocols apply in different situations. 

I'm so pissed. I'm mad at him for making me look like a thirsty fan girl in public. Aaaaargh!

Now, unto more serious things. 

I noticed something tonight. You know I'm no stranger to going to the movies solo. In fact it's kinda my thing. I realize now that I've been blessed with this sense of completeness just as I am, I'm always fine riding solo, to the movies, to church, to the bar, to seminars, in life... LOL, so yes, I'm not new to this. I've had enough experience to know that something is happening. You know, it's rare that you come to the movies and people come solo. Very rare. Today however I saw many lone men and lone ladies wandering around all alone. 

A lot of these men are of marriageable age. Even saw a few in their 50s solemnly wandering the mall alone. Then I went in for my movie, I was the first to get in so I was able to watch other people come in. At least 60% of the people that came to see that movie came alone, male and female. I was surprised. Why are there so many "alone" people????

And lastly, my movie! If there's only one thing you take away from this post it should be The Hitman's Bodyguard. If you haven't seen it, go watch it and thank me later. 

And on that note, I head home, tomorrow is another day.

What's your current situation?

  1. i've been wanting to go to the movies solo for a long time, haven't yet achieved that. I remember first time i wanted to do it was ages ago when Half of a Yellow sun was screening. Got ready one sunday and planned to go after church, then one thing led to another and it never happened. Your "inlaw" is on a long thing.

  2. oh my goodness.... i lied...lol. i have been to the movies alone before... once in 2007. I attended a conference that I thought started at 3pm or so. Turned out it started at 7pm, so I used that time to see (part of) a movie at the cinema. The movie was Eagle Eye.

    2. Saw Eagle Eye, although not at the cinemas and it was a good watch. Saw The Hitman's Bodyguard last week and didn't like it. Good movie though but I don't particularly like the comedy genre.

      Current situation: gonna be up for the next four hours to start and submit an assignment that is almost due. Chrisyinks

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…

One More Post...

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!
