About Friday Night. The Laughter, The Tears, The Truths & The Dares.





Friday night was lit af!  A few blog readers and I had planned to have drinks on Wednesday, but thanks to Kabuoy who couldn't make it then, we opted for Friday night. Sasha BonΓ© also suggested we go to a karaoke bar and that's how we wound up at Shaunz Bar, VI. Kon (and his friends), Sasha, Sunshine, Kabuoy, Buby, Nkem (with her sister) and I. 

First off, Sunshine and Kabuoy are just something else, these ladies are amazingggggg, like the whole bar knew their names before the end of the night. I'm in love with their good vibes and awesome energy. 
    ...So they wanted to monopolize the mic but unfortunately one man who sings like Michael Bolton and Rod Stewart's love child (or at least thinks he does πŸ™ˆ) had seized the mic and made sure that everybody sha heard him sing by fire by force, and nobody else must sing. It was really paining Sunshine and Kabuoy, like they wanted to wring the life out of the man's neck. A few minutes later I walked pass the podium to return to my seat and I heard someone holla wambundo, it could only be one person, my boss of laife! My one and only boss, from my law internship days and then my Youth Service days and then my law practice days and now one of my most amazing friends! Turns out Oga was the one that had been colonizing the mic all along.  

I felt like I owed everyone at Shaunz an apology because you see, back in 2010 I was the one who popped Oga's karaoke cherry. I introduced him to karaokes and obviously he's not only hooked, he has become a karaoke bandit, using his strong vocals to bully other would-be singers into silence. 

Sunshine & Kabuoy. 

Eventually Sunshine got her turn, as did Kabuoy and then at some point Kabuoy left to go and "set P" with one guy downstairs πŸ˜‚. Then Sasha BonΓ© took the stage, and then Kon took the stage rapping 50 Cents In Da Club with Sasha as back up.

Kon rapping In da club

And then at some point I just sat and watched all of them and then I became so overwhelmed with emotions, like God blessed me with these amazing people, and then a knot formed in my throat and I struggled not to cry. And then I looked at Kon and I remembered that in a day or two he would be leaving the country to go join his family in the oversees, and I legit broke down inside the club and started crying. Like, real tears child! Kon eventually noticed and then when he heard why I was crying, he laughed so hard that I got mad and my eyes immediate dried up out of anger 😀😀.

Hehe. And then we got to watch one guy propose to his girlfriend, after singing to her on the stage, and she couldn't stop jumping around and crying and hyperventilating πŸ˜‚. But I tell you, love is such a beautiful thing ❤️❤️❤️. 

So when it was just I, Sasha, Buby and Kon/Kon's friends left, Sasha suggested a game of truth or dare. That was freaking hilarious. Sasha dared Kon and to go and twerk on the stage during somebody's performance, which he did. Crazy guy! Kon dared Sasha to go and toast a guy and get his number, she did and ended up spending too long with the guy sef. Apparently they started feeling each other. LOL. Kon dared Buby to give some guy a lap dance... That lap dance was so hot it could boil rice! Kon dared me to go seductively chat up this babe who was with her boyfriend and get her number. I did! And while I was at it I told her about TTB and right there she opened the blog. We exchanged numbers and suffice it to say we have a very pretty new blog reader. Lastly I dared Kon to go and tell this cute guy I'd been crushing on all night to come and kiss me. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. OMG the guy came o! And kissed me, kinda... LOL. Don't judge me, the guy is tall, cute, certified beard gang member and sings like Trey Songs. Like, bros sang an Adele song and I nearly peed in my pant πŸ™ˆπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

And then we exchanged numbers and then we hooked up yesterday, but hey, let's not digress! πŸ˜†

So from Shaunz Bar we went to Ntyce but we weren't really feeling it, so we went to this "make shift" club opposite Mega Plaza. Aha! That was another story entirely. Sasha and Kon's friend (who has Duracell battery in his spine and cannot stop dancing) were in a world of their own. Kon and Buby both saw people that they knew and had their own asides and I was just there taking it all in when this baby boy came and poured himself all over me like white on rice. 

Well Friday night ended at 5am on Saturday morning, the said baby boy took sasha and I to eat and then took us home, and now he and I have plans for later today... But let me not digress again. LOL. 

Suffice it to say that it was one of those nights you look back on in 5 years and you still smile when you remember it. I cannot overstate how grateful I am for this platform, what I haven't made in cash, I've more than made in people, connections, relationships and bonds. Not just mine alone but even the people that meet each other through the blog. 

I'm also thankful for Kon. I cried because I realized that he's been a huge part of all our recent hang outs and now he's relocating, just like Uyi. And I was scared that just like Uyi did when he moved to New York, Kon may grow distant from the blog. And I know that I will miss him, both his physical presence, but also his presence on the blog. Hashtag: Don't leave us Kon πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

Sunshine and Kabuoy deserve their own blog post I tell you. They are everything! Nkem and her sister make me hunger for a sister that's also a close friend and hangout buddy (they came for the last hang out together too). Buby... quiet demure Buby... Buby obviously has this other secret not-so-quiet side to her and I LOVEEEEEEEET! And Sasha, well that's my girl so...

To them and everyone else on the blog, those who come through when we hang out and those who haven't yet, I just want you guys to know that my life is a million times richer, simply because I have you in it. 

Blessings!

  5. Awwwwwwn!! This was so beautiful Thelma, I actually felt like crying. I understand how you feel about Kon relocating; good friends are hard to find and when you do find them, you try your possible best not to lose them. I'm so glad you guys had so much fun. One of this days i'll be in Lagos and i'll be sure to let everyone on this blog know. LOL!
    PS: Kon sort of looks like Darey Alade in that picture.
    Thelma on behalf of all TTB members, I(we) request for the gist of the bearded guy and the baby boy. Sunshine, Kabuoy and Nkem, kisses to you guys. Have a lovely week.
    #DontLeaveUsKon. We'll definitely miss you. Safe journey in advance.

    I had way too much fun on Friday night. That Thelma’s Oga almost made me lose my mind when he was singing. The funny thing is, we had all been complaining about the guy that sang 3 consecutive times feeling like.. I don’t even know (his voice legit almost had me pulling out my hairπŸ˜‚) only for me to hear someone shriek in front of the guy we’d all been giving bad eye, it was Thelma😲. You know the guy that has been punishing usπŸ˜²πŸ˜‚.

    The karaoke was on fire! I sang, rapped (not that Baby thing that Kon did o) and you know basically laughed my head off.

    That girl that got proposed to thoπŸ™„ the drama was just too much🀦‍♂️. Congrats to them sha..


    I really wished we stayed for the truth or dare part. And Thelma, I remember the guy you’re talking about. He usually went up with his friend to sing.. their voices together ehn! *fans self*πŸ˜‚

    Kon, thanks for always being an amazing part of our hangouts.. I wish you all the very best in obodo oyinbo.


    Thank you for this platform Thelma. I told two of my friends who know how addicted I am to this blog that I was going to hangout at Shaunz on Friday with my blog people(one of them was even there that night), they couldn’t believe it. They were like, no be ordinary blog? But no, no be “ordinary blog”, na Thelma Thinks Blog, we family!😁

  14. Friday was a revelation! I was truly glad I came. Kabouy and Sunshine have a vibe I envy! πŸ‘πŸΎ And Sasha is one fun package of surprises! Nkem is an observer with many laughters. Now Kon is quite the gentleman and not as gangster as I had envisioned in my head😁. Thelma who I consider a strong and beautiful woman 😁, has some amazing people here that make first time meetings non awkward. Hopefully we'll have a greater turn out next time! Yep! I had that much fun!πŸ’ƒπŸ½

    Disclaimer: Buby is really and truly 100% a quiet and demure personπŸ˜‡. Any other side you ever get to see is certainly under the influence of the spirit (I really do not know this spirit so please do not ask meπŸ™πŸΎ)

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!
