Have you ever been in a multistorey building and look down at the “peasants” beneath you? Doesn’t it feel cool to be able to see people from a vantage position, and they have no idea you are up there?

Success in any endeavor would be impossible to attain without strength and patience.
Looking back at China’s space junk from 2007 and now, 2021, should space endeavors be a source of worry? Just like with industrialization and global warming, countries that didn’t participate or benefit could be the worst-hit victims.

From shooting themselves in the foot to sticking their foot in their mouth, people end up doing more damage to themselves than their targets.

Do you have an idea how frustrating it is to listen to a speaker, and half their speech is telling you about the true meaning of a word?

Please, if you know breakfast in bed is something you look forward to, ask your husband if he can cook before you marry him.
Maybe you should even taste his food. It’s not only guys that need to know about your kitchen skills.
She went on to regale me with the latest news on the blogs. I think all of our gossip sessions can be summarised thus, “Nigerians are crazy.”
And apparently, the couple that gossips together stays together.

I never thought of this before, am I my spec’s spec?
Spot the animal in human skin around you based on their response to this stomach-churning incident. Don’t stop at blocking and reporting them on Twitter and Instagram. Keep your children away from them.
Apparently, there is one circle where death isn’t as frowned upon. When I found this out, I was shocked.
That was until I heard their argument. Now I’m conflicted. On the one hand, they are right. On the other hand, this is someone dying.
There are principles that guarantee outcomes, then there is also the law of randomness.
Not every situation has a reason, a purpose, or an origin. Some just happened for happening sake.
They were calling me boss, stud, G, main man, and other macho salutations. If only they knew that all my head was doing was thinking up possible pick up and start up line.
We all believe God works in mysterious ways, but we don’t think one of such ways could be a Pixar movie. Or an Eminem, DMX, or Macklemore song.
The ease with which people confidently quote the Bible with sayings that are not in the Bible is quite surprising, shocking, frustrating, and disappointing.
In today’s episode of things the bible did not say, we will be talking about “cleanliness is next to godliness”.
Don’t let people bound you to your pain while they go-ahead to live a free life. And don’t mentally do the same to yourself.
The worst prisoner is the one who is also his own prison warden.

I find this revelation so funny, yet enlightening, that I can’t even be upset with mummy for starting marriage talk with me this morning. This made a lot of sense.

Imagine everyone you associate with the word “faith”, lacking something that you have today.
You can’t cry more than the bereaved. So also, you can’t know where the shoe pinches if it is not on your feet.
You can’t complain about how someone has chosen to carry their head. If they prefer to cut it and hold it in their hands, it is their choice.
She took my palm, and using a pen, she wrote down her number.
“Call me when you remember what it is you wanted to talk to me about.”
With that, she turned around and strutted back to join her mates.

When you hear the word onomatopoeia, what comes to your mind?
It is still funny to me the way we attach memories to places, people, smells, and in my weird case, the word onomatopoeia.

I got back to the sitting room and met Tomi and Hannah giggling like sisters sharing a secret.

Hold on. They were the ones that put this thought in my head. I wasn’t thinking about getting married until our discussion yesterday.
I speak English, Yoruba, Benin, Ishan, and Pidgin English. If you have a problem with me throwing multilingual and polyglot into my CV, then you can schedule a bout with me at the National Stadium.
There is a joy that comes from understanding things. I found this as a child, and ever since, my quest for knowledge has been boundless. And for each new thing I learn, the satisfaction I gain is unquantifiable.
Why would you deny yourself of this pleasure?
Of what use is a friend that is never available when needed? What are you supposed to do with a friend who shows up only a couple of days after they were needed?
