“NO SEX PLEASE; WE ARE MARRIED!”

Why do so many marriages have sexual issues. I’m not talking about premature ejaculation, which seems to be trending among men these days, neither am I talking about related medical issues on either side. No, I’m talking about the lack of unbridled sexual activity between a man and his wife; between a woman and her husband. You know; no holds barred wherever sexual intercourse that leaves both satiated, smiles on their faces and a spring in their step with the mentally that “I can conquer the world” (maybe not quite that but you know what I mean). If not even for the preceding reasons; for medical ones like burning calories, sense of well-being, improved attitude etc. Majority of couples are “managing” each other. Women might...

THE TEN

    I was brushing my hair a couple of weeks ago when I saw nottwo but a rash of grey hair! I couldn’t believe it. I remember clearly knowing somehow that grey hair was for old people. The way I even perceived ‘old’ was as if it would never catch up with me. Well, I’m not 40 yet and it has! I look at President B. Obama and reckon I’m in good company. He is the leader of the free world who had come in with a nice head of curly black hair now it is speckled with grey hair. I might be as a result of leading a troublesome world but if this younger generation is greying way ahead of time then it must be a reflection of being under much more pressure at an earlier age. The strands of grey hair set me thinking. It set me on the path to get a code that...

WHO WILL STEM THE TIDE?

Is it not time we started asking who we have offended because our descent into hell will be legendary. It is now getting unbelievable the new heights of evil we are scaling each day. We woke to hear conflicting stories of a shoot-out/ambush or something in an uncompleted building where seven or so people were killed. Then the news that NAFDAC had caught a group of people who were using embalming fluid to inject into cow hide (kpomo) to make it appear bigger and more succulent. At a point we tried to stop the importation of frozen goods because formalin was used as a preservative; which is used in embalming corpses too! Then another group was caught melting Styrofoam and selling it as honey! Honestly I was shocked and believe me it takes quite a bit to shock me....

TO HELL WITH YOU, MY FRIEND

TO HELL WITH YOU, MY FRIEND ‘There comes a time when you have to stop crossing oceans for people who won’t even jump puddles for you.’ This display message became the inspiration for this post. A very true statement up to ‘people’, the completion is what caught my attention. A number of questions came to mind. 1) Did anyone ask you or coerce you to ‘jump oceans’? 2) If ‘jumping oceans’ comes with the job description you signed up for, what’s the grumbling about? 3) What was your motive for deciding to’ jump over oceans’ in the first place? 4) What makes you judge your action as being an ‘ocean’ in the first place? 5) Is it possible the ‘non-puddle jumper’ might consider their other ‘doings’ as ‘oceans’? 6) Is it not only...

CREATING PAINFUL HAPPY MEMORIES

Some of us are not destined for happiness; whatever you conceive happiness to be. There are certain indices that must be present to qualify what happiness is. I tend to think of happiness as a state of clam, relatively without turmoil and just the feeling that ‘I am in the right zone’. Now life apparently hasn’t been designed to be fair; just as our fingers are not equal, so each person’s life journey is different and ‘unequal’. Someone once said “Everything happens for a reason; sometimes the reason is that you are stupid and made the wrong decision”. In the context of destiny and for those of us that happiness is a word and an illusion; that is unfair. Let me explain. By the time you realise that the stars don’t have happiness in their...
