30 Days of Thankfulness

Today's the last day in November...and I decided to do MY 30days of Thankfulness today(that's wat it is right??) This is almost the end of the year and looking back all I see is God's Handwork in my life...His love and faithfulness are indeed forever. I give him all the Glory... So here goes

Father in heaven I thank You for everything.Father I thank You for the gift of life; I am grateful each day I wake up hale and hearty. So I thank You Father for my life today and for everyone who’s reading this post.

Father I thank You for Your Love, It has kept me whole. With You I’ve come to realise what love is. Your love is true, overwhelming, selfless and above all it’s unconditional. You are love.It’s hard to understand how a Holy being can love a sinner like me. It’s phenomenal, it’s simply beautiful. I thank & love You Lord.

Father I thank You for Your constant Protection and Guidance.How else could I have been kept safe from harm all these years? By luck? I don’t think so. You’ve given Your angels charge over me. You’re always there for me. I’m more than thankful.

Father I thank You for Your mercy. You know all the times I’ve gone astray and been afraid to pray to You for fear that You’d ignore me, or for fear that I’d hear Your voice admonishing me for going astray. Instead, You reminded me that You are a merciful God while You patiently awaited my return, and when I did, You welcomed and received me with open arms and told me how pleased You were to have me back. I thank you Lord.

Father I thank You for my family - Your gift to me. May Your Blessings and Favour remain with us. I thank You especially for my parents. You know how much I love them. Father, please keep them for many years to come. I thank you for my step parents. They made me see life in a new light. I thank you for my siblings. I can’t find the right words to express how much I love them. I thank you for the strong bond we have.

I thank you for my friends. You know how much I appreciate them & how special they are to me. I believe we’re in each others’ lives for a purpose. May your Blessings and Favour remain with them all.

Father I thank You for Your Blessings. You’ve blessed me so much, in ways that I’m even unaware of. You’ve Blessed me abundantly, more than I even need. I thank You. I know there are loads of people who will give anything to live just one day in my life. I never lack cos You’re my Provider. I’m so grateful.

Father I thank You for Your Grace. I’m who I am today by Your Grace. Your Grace is sufficient for me. I’m thankful for my Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. I thank you that I’ve got you Jesus. Knowing You is the best thing that has happened to me. You made me realise that without You life is futile. My life is in Your hands and so I can’t fall. I thank You for my faith in You. You’ve remained faithful. I’m sooo thankful Father. I can’t thank you enough…

So who's going to be tagged???? as many as havent done theirs...take time out to reflect and appreciate The Lord your God...
Remain Blessed...

an intriguing character......

This is an interesting write up I came across:

You see the thing about Bobby is.....He's very easy to understand but hard to predict; generous to a fault; caring and addictive in a funny sort of way. Simply put, he is mildly contagious......Easy to love, easy to hate. If he likes you, its because of you and the qualities you possess. If he loves you, its because you understand him. Only then will you get the best of him b'cos he'll go out of his way for you(no doubt). Though most times, people mistake his likeness for love[cant blame them...nice guys are hard to find, and there's only one that can be compared to him....him!] they try to please Bobby instead of trying to understand him..and when he returns the gesture, they mistake it for love and then they try to take it a step further by trying to own him.
Now there's nothing wrong with the desire if wanting to own something(or someone) special......its only human!! but it so happens that when they desire to own Bobby without a proper understanding of the kind of dude he really is, the end result is usually catastrophic cus it always leads to emotion:extreme hate!! why?? cos we hate wat we dont understand.
Talking about hate, Bobby can't say he hates anybody, but he simply does not associate himself with people that roll in the negative. People that only say bad things about others, or only rejoice in people's weaknesses....[its funny how they turn around and blow a fuse when people talk about them....and they are often linked to people that pretend a lot..makes no sense, cos in the end all that matters is time cos the longer an individual relates with others, the sooner the true habits pop out]....
So if you happen to get a wrong vibe from Bobby, there's a 100% chance that you fall into such category. Now when Bobby is happy with you he doesnt sense your flaws, even when you keep poking at his. If he's not happy with you he will simply avoid big deal[not that it matters anyway cos we all have flaws...yes, including the f***ing self righteous Bobby].
You really don't want to see him when he's pissed off, let alone be the one to put him in that state..don't get it twisted, he's very easy to amuse and could be the most difficult to annoy but you will definitely suceed if you push him hard enough[just like some have done in the past]..but its usually not funny and it comes with a guarantee: you will regret it!(they always do).........Easy to love...easy to hate..He respects people a lot and when he does see people that share the same virtue, he respects them even more and that, is partly why he's so f***ing hard to understand; but he does make one thing clear though: he knows exactly what he wants! It'll be wrong to think you know him well enough. If only you can understand, it'll all come to you.
So, feel free and holla at your boy today....perhaps i might be wrong!!!

Na wa o

Only extreme situations we experience or hear of that blow our minds prompt us nigerians to verbally exclaim the above popular, non-english[what we nigerians refer to as pidgin english] phrase " na wa o"...... what has prompted this you wonder?? Is she a perpetual whiner, complainer, etc etc?......ok second question first,...NO I AM NOT!!!!! First question next, the thing is in my office, I was once priviledged with roaming round the web....So much, that when I first opened this account, my catch phrase under my name was "touring the web"[catchy innit?]....I opened accounts with NDL, Facebook, Myspace, Blogspot, Tagged, Hi5 etc etc.....and I could keep myself soo oo busy hopping from one account to the other.......NOW!!!!! My office for some reason has decided to cut short our priviledges...I'm told half bread is better than none, and I quite agree, because now all my websites from facebook, to hi5 to NDL etc, have all been restricted..(that means my access has been blocked). So when I come to work, I can only access my emails, my blog page...and google(lol) I wonder where I'll be going from there...but wen am sooooo bored and I want to go somewhere to keep me busy, not to mention catch up on where I've left off especially on facebook(sniff! sniff!! whimper!! I miss facebook.. waaaaaaaaaahh!!) all I have is here.......kai! na wa o!! But am not complaining anyway, cos am feeling the bloggers I've met so far and still meeting, so hey!! half bread really is better than none yes??(lol)
I've been tagged by unnaked and i think aijay??? will update guys, me promise!!*wink*

Inspired to.....................???????????

Am not exactly a copy-cat, but when I come across certain material, or experiences(is dat d word?) etc, I'm inclined to chip in a few little kids telling stories and one shouts" too, me too....when I was ......." and dey ramble away. Well, today am just inspired to yack(as usual)..... over a few thingies I cant stop thinking of....and the top of the list is money. Now the Bible warns that the love of money is indeed the root of all evil, but it acknowledges that it answereth all things. So the biggie is how do I draw the line? Cos I look around me, I see fantastic things all over from clothing, to accessories, to automobiles, to electronics, etc and how do u get them? Money!!!! I keep thinking of places I want to see, activities I want to indulge in and how do I involve myself? Money!! I see how nicely women my age and older are dressed, how beautifully they're taken care of..whether its via them or their guys but the bottom line is Money does answer all things matter what it is.....after all, "good soup na money kill am".

Number two thing on my mind really is a am not bellyaching, neither am I whining or complaining, but am just saying or rather asking, or saying it would be nice to get mine right about now...know wat I mean bcos as usual, I look around me, I see happy(or so they seem) couples, chics proudly brandishing what they're men bought for them...some go as far as driving their cars, I hear mushy stories....I hear not so mushy stories...and I look at myself and my experiences and I ask myself 'What the Hell???' Someone said you have to kiss a few frogs to get to your prince charming.....and I wont mind getting mine now...Although God's time is the best and all that, and with a relationship comes responsibilities that I ask myself 'Am I ready for??' [Well, I think I am] I decided as I always do, to shut myself up till I start talking again to just relax and have as much fun as I can while I wait.....[Thank God for Zoe!!:-) so enough gbedun for me(lol)]

For now, those are the two main things I think of like all the time, at least Zoe is here so one is knocked off my list.....hehehehehehehehe.

Well, I'll see u guys wen December begins....then wen can discuss our plans for the approaching Holidays..........(mwuah!)

50 Things Men Wish You Knew

Universal guy truths that all women should understand
(Guys is dis true??)

1. Express yourself. It makes us proud, even if someone thinks you're wrong.

2. You look hot in running shoes and shorts. And that top thingy with the stripes.

3. Bare, tan shoulders are underrated.

4. If you think I’m speeding now, you should see me drive when you're not in the car.

5. If you're truly interested in us, don't play hard to get.

6. Shopping is a chore, not an activity.

7. When I screw up, go ahead and tell me--once.

8. No question need ever be asked through a closed bathroom door if I'm inside. I love you less with each syllable you utter.

9. I'm hot for you, not your sister or your friend or your coworker.

10. My guy friends. Not only are they not negotiable, they’re your best sign that I’m not a whack job.

11. Don't be afraid to ditch the makeup. Natural is sexier.

12. Leave the eyebrows alone. Plucked ain't pretty.

13. You can have sex with us any time you want. Seriously.

14. When the game is on, we will pay attention to you if you're nice about it. Bark, and we shut down.

15. I don't ask for directions because I’m just happy to be driving. Anywhere.

16. Masturbation is merely practice for the big game. Encourage it.

17. We crave hugs and hand-holding too. And no, it doesn't always have to lead to sex.

18. But you can have sex with us any time you want. Did we mention that?

19. There's no better sound in the world than you, having an orgasm.

20. Though the exhaust note of a Porsche Boxster is pretty damn fine, too.

21. I just may lie to make you feel good. Don’t be angry about this. You really weren't looking for the truth anyway.

22. When you get angry over some stupid little pointless thing, I question your intelligence.

23. You’re really bad at faking it.

24. If I offer my help while you're getting ready, it means you’re late.

25. Never ask me to pick out your outfit. (See above.) I will invariably get it wrong and make us even more late.

26. Giving me two or three choices, however, can be fun. Assuming you will change outfits in front of me. Slowly.

27. Err on the side of hot; I love to show you off.

28. Unless we're meeting my parents.

29. When you call us at work "just to chat," we're not really listening; we're checking our e-mail.

30. Spring means baseball and skirts. Doesn't need to be a mini-skirt; it's been a long winter.

31. Chicks who drink beer are hot. Better yet: chicks who drink beer and watch the game. Better still: chicks who buy us a beer during the game.

32. We don't mind being told we look good. Just don't call it a "cute outfit."

33. We love ponytails.

34. Being good in bed means a) enthusiasm; b) a sense of humor; and sometimes c) patience.

35. The first time? We're as nervous as you are.

36. A random unexpected grope is always welcome, even in public. Especially in public.

37. Make us laugh and we'll want to hang around.

38. Yes, I laugh really loud around the guys. And I always will, so deal.

39. Sure, men stereotypically like to solve a woman's problems. But a woman who solves her own while we watch? Instant erection.

40. You can pick the movie, but have a reason.

41. Do not expect to have a conversation via text message unless you use the words "naked" and "waiting."

42. Sometimes we wonder why any woman would want to be with us, much less someone as amazing as you. So, thanks.

43. Anytime you cook for us, we're happy.

44. If you can hit a golf ball 150 yards, we just might fall in love.

45. No, I don't remember what he said next. Or she. Or anybody, for that matter. I'm a guy, not a tape recorder.

46. We love you even more because you know we need to go out with the guys once in a while.

47. And we love it when you hang with us guys, too.

48. We have a keen sense of imminent danger. It sounds like, "Do you think she's pretty?"

49. Don't rely on us for keeping you up on the news.

50. Never say, "I know you better than you know yourself." Nobody does.

What He Hears You Say

For years, researchers have claimed that women talk way more than men — one oft-cited stat is that women use 20,000 words a day while men use only 7,000. But it turns out that women and men both use an average of 16,000 words per day, according to a recent study from the University of Texas at Austin.

Lost in Translation: What he really hears when your lips are moving.
You say: "Ugh, my boss is horrible. I had the worst day. "
You mean: "I really need to vent about my day."
He hears: "Tell me how to fix my relationship with my boss."

You say: "Hey, can we talk?"
You mean: "I have something important to tell you."
He hears: "You screwed up, buddy."

You say: "Oh, those shoes don't go with that belt. Why don't you wear the brown ones?"
You mean: "I just want to help you look good."
He hears: "Aw, the widdle baby can't dwess himself!"

You say: "Let's straighten up in here."
You mean: "Let's straighten up in here."
He hears: "I resent that you're a pig."

You say: "I'm so sorry you had such a rough day. You must feel terrible."
You mean:"I want you to know I empathize with you."
He hears: "I feel sorry for you, you sad sack of a man."

You say: "Do you think that woman's hot?"
You mean: "Tell me that I'm hot."

Men's ability to process language and understand what's being said to them begins to diminish starting in their 30s. Women retain this ability until menopause. Source: Why Men Never Remember and Women Never Forget by Marianne J. Legato, M.D.(hmmmm)

Why doesn't he see what I need?The love expert says... He takes everything personally."If I call a friend and say, 'I'm having a terrible day,' she'll drop everything and ask, 'Are you okay?' A woman hears complaints as an invitation to move closer. But a man hears complaints as an indication that he's failed. He measures his very worth by his ability to provide and protect, so in his mind, if he were doing his job, she wouldn't be unhappy.

"Does this mean a woman can never complain to a man? Of course not! Men really want to please women. All you have to say is, 'Would you help me with...' or 'I would love it if....' Go beyond the complaint or criticism and get at the desire. High-maintenance women don't scare men. Men actually like it because it gives them a clear set of rules for how to improve, and they can tell when they're succeeding." —Pat Love, coauthor of How to Improve Your Marriage Without Talking About It

Why doesn't he understand me?The linguist says... He assumes you're trying to be the boss of him."In general, men focus on hierarchy and women on connection. I always find it fascinating to go back to studies of how kids talk: Boys use talk to negotiate their status within a group, while girls use talk to negotiate closeness. This difference can cause misunderstandings with apologies, for example. When a man makes some small transgression, his wife might feel that if he'd just say, 'I'm sorry,' it would be over. But he won't, and then you end up arguing about why he won't apologize. For many women, an apology means, 'I care that I let you down; I care about you.' If he doesn't apologize, it's like he doesn't care. But for men, asking for an apology is a demand that he publicly humiliate himself. He thinks apologizing is a sign of weakness, and that you'll use it against him, because that's what another man would do. So when you say, 'Why won't you apologize?' he hears, 'I caught you in an error and I'm going to rub your nose in it.'"

Labouring Too Hard For Love?

Here are some tips for you..........

Some single people find themselves toiling hard, really hard to make love happen. Consider the case of Toni Larusso of New York. She put intense effort into making a guy her exclusive boyfriend. "I was crazy about him," she recalls. "I changed my work schedule, dropped most of my friends. They begged me to quit seeing him and their concern helped me realize what I'd gotten myself into. Now that I'm over him, I'm trying to figure out why I wasted so much effort on someone who didn't reciprocate."
Like Toni, many of us are guilty of laboring for love. We try too hard to make things work with someone who's unworthy—or just plain uninterested. We accept things we otherwise wouldn't want to and turn a blind eye to egregious flaws and foibles in our relationships. But we don't have to keep doing it.

Get Real: "The first thing you can do is to become honest with yourself and raise your self-esteem," counsels Sonia Choquette, author of Trust Your Vibes. "Somewhere along the way, you came to wrongly believe that you are not OK and are accepting poor behavior from others or are aligning with those who have nothing to offer because of your weak self-image." That's the root problem. "If you are in the habit of being with the wrong person, take a break from dating and fall in love with yourself," she suggests. "Do for yourself all the things you tend to do for the other. Give yourself gifts, take yourself to lunch or dinner, and give yourself statements of appreciation." Recognize your talents when you do a good job or when you're a good friend. You may also want to seek the services of a therapist or counselor if these little pick-me-ups don't work. "The key to getting what we deserve is to know that the first place to look is within ourselves," she says. "No one will treat you better than you are willing to treat yourself. If you criticize yourself, never speak up, don't ask for what you need, or are in the habit of over-giving in order to manipulate others, all relationships you have will show signs of strain."

Question whether to pursue: Does this mean you have to stop going after a certain someone or break off a budding relationship ASAP? "Not necessarily," says clinical social worker Helen King. "Once you have a realistic assessment of the relationship, decide if you are really with the person you want." Then figure out if the person is willing to work with you to make things better. "If you stop working so hard, you may allow your date to step up and participate," she notes. "If you don't give the person the chance, you may never know how invested he or she is." If you think your behavior may have entered the realm of working way too hard, King suggests answering these questions for yourself:
• How is the rest of my life affected by this situation?
• Am I losing sleep or not taking care of myself?
• Is my work suffering?
• Am I ignoring friends?
If you have some answers that indicate that your approach to dating is detrimental, King notes, "you may need to step back from the romance."

Stay the course: But how can you make sure you don't step into a negative situation again with the next person you date? "Knowing that we each deserve to be in happy, loving, mutually supportive relationships is the key to not repeating the mistakes of the past," King says. "Learning from each romantic experience, building upon the positive aspects, and getting out of situations that repeat the negative, will ensure that the next relationship is closer to what you are looking for." To do that, think hard about what you need and the type of person you want. Then, King says, "commit to yourself and a buddy who can help you stay on track. "As you date, you will continue to check in with yourself and your support [person], to ensure that what you said you wanted and who you are with match, at least on the important things," she notes. "Don't stay in a budding romance because you fear being alone or failing. Listen to your heart and your inner self; they will lead you on the right path."

Eight Dating Lines Decoded

It's no secret that the language of love isn't always the most, well, direct. That's why so many single people spend hours analyzing emails from dates trying to figure out if "I'm busy at work" is a brush-off, or wondering whether that invitation of "I'll make dinner for you" indicates a desire to share a whole lot more than a favorite garlic chicken recipe.
How can you suss out what someone's really trying to say? To help you out, we got a bevy of dating experts to decode eight common lines so you'll spend less time scratching your head and more time communicating.

Line: "I'd love to stay out, but I have to get up really early tomorrow."
What it means: "Sorry, you just aren't floating my boat."
Of course, if it's 2 a.m. or your date follows up with, "But let's get together soon—maybe this weekend?" the fact that he or she want to end the date is no big deal. But if the night is young or your date mentions an aversion to staying out late in the middle of, say, appetizers, that's not a good sign. Your date may sense there's no connection and want to exit sooner rather than later, says Steve Nakamoto, author of Men Are Like Fish: What Every Woman Needs to Know About Catching A Man. At least look at the upside: This person's also freeing you from a situation that's not going anywhere, so just enjoy your dinner, then skedaddle.

Line: "I had such a good time with you."
What it means: "Wow, you're actually fun and different from all the other guys/girls!"
This sentence might sound generic, but try saying it out loud: It sounds far more intense than a mere "I had a nice night," doesn't it? "This is a way of revealing how you feel without getting too heavy," says Laurie Puhn, J.D., author of Instant Persuasion: How to Change Your Words to Change Your Life. "The person is letting you know that he or she really might like you, and trying to find out if you possibly feel the same." So if the interest is mutual, let your date know by responding in kind.

Line: "I'm just not ready for a relationship."
What it means: "I'm just not in love with you."
It's hard when someone you like tells you he or she's not in a place to seriously date anyone. But it also makes you hope that the problem is timing, not your personalities. If you can just be patient, you think, things could percolate, right? Wrong. "This means 'I don't love you, so if that's what you want, we should break up,'" says Puhn. Don't be fooled—when this person does meet someone who has that spark, he or she will indeed be ready for a relationship.

Line: "I'd love to meet up, but I'm just really busy with work right now."
What it means: "I'm trying to think of a really nice way to blow you off."
Of course, this person could very well have a full schedule that week. But if he or she doesn't offer any alternative dates to hang out, what you're really being told is that this person would rather work than hang out with you. (Sorry.) "Your date very well could be busy. The question is whether your date's focusing on the problem or finding a solution," says Puhn. "You can always get away long enough for dinner or a drink with someone or say, 'I'm going to call you in two weeks after this project is done.' It's a matter of priorities." So if your date isn't trying to pencil you in, it could be time to write that person off.

Line: "So, gotten any funny emails on lately?"
What it means: "Are you interested in seeing each other exclusively?"
Let's face it, it's intimidating to ask: "So are you seeing anyone else?" And with online dating, there's a sneakier way to put out feelers: By asking a question that reveals whether someone's been checking his or her account for new suitors. "In online dating, you can receive flirtatious emails 24/7, so leaving your profile up sends a message that you're still open to other prospects," says Nakamoto. So if your date's asking anything about your online activities, it's probably a sign he or she might pop the "So... do you want to see each other exclusively?" question soon.

Line: "So, want to meet for coffee?"
What it means: "Want to meet for a coffee and then have dinner if we like each other?"
It's always smart to schedule a short, easy-to-end date when you're first meeting a new person. "Committing to a dinner with someone new can seem like too much for a person who doesn't want to get stuck at a table for hours if things aren't clicking," explains Puhn. Still, many online daters will leave the ensuing hours free in case you two hit it off. That doesn't mean you should head to your rendezvous with overly high expectations and an empty stomach. If you're hungry, eat already. If you end up wanting to prolong the fun on your date, you can always suggest going for dessert or a drink.

Line: "I'm meeting my friends for a drink—want to come?"
What it means: "I really like you and want to know if you get along with my pals."
It may sound like a casual invite, but what your date is saying is that he or she is totally comfortable being seen with you as a couple—and is interested in how you'll relate to his or her closest comrades. "Meeting the friends is an approval thing," says Nakamoto. "Women want to see how he treats their friends, and men want to know if his friends like the girl." It may seem intimidating, but it should actually boost your ego: You've passed the first tests and are now on your way to becoming a full-time boyfriend or girlfriend—provided the buddies sign off. If you're feeling just as positive about the relationship, say "Yes," and charm away.

Line: "Why don't you come over and I'll cook for you?"
What it means: "Ready to get physical?"
Cooking for a person is a show of intimacy in a couple of ways. "The person is really inviting you into his or her life," says Puhn. "Someone's apartment is their whole world, so they're obviously very comfortable with you." Then, of course, there's the fact that you'll conveniently be just a few steps from the couch—and the bedroom —later that night. If it's a first or early date, this might actually be a bit too personal, especially if you're not sure how you feel about your future together. But if you're pretty sure you're ready to explore things further, congratulations, tonight could be the night!

For all subordinates

Here's an excerpt:

Boss-to-English Translator: What your boss says and what he really means
Do you ever feel a trip to your boss's office is like a trip to a foreign country? Nice view, but no speaka dee English? In order to ensure that none of the buck passing, put- downing, or one- upping is lost in translation, make sure to bring along this cheat sheet so you know what the big enchilada is really trying to say.

"Great job on the report!"
Translation: "I'm taking credit for your work."

"I have to attend an off-site meeting."
Translation: "I'm having an affair."

"Let me give you some broadstroke ideas and you can fill in the rest."
Translation: "I still haven't learned how to create an Excel document."

"Headquarters has assured me we will not be affected by the merger."
Translation: "You are going to be fired."

"I'm not sure if what you are suggesting is in alignment with our core competencies."
Translation: "What exactly do we do again?"

"This office is a family and my door is always open if you ever need to powwow with Papa Bear."
Translation: "I am a tool."

"I'll be out of the office for a couple hours with senior management, but you can reach me on my mobile."
Translation: "I'm playing golf."

"I'll be off-site and unreachable for the rest of the afternoon."
Translation: "I'm playing golf and I expect to be very, very drunk."

"I think we should order in some lunch for the team."
Translation: "None of you are getting a raise. Enjoy your pizza."

"I don't want to have to micromanage this whole operation!"
Translation: "I'm the boss because I made good business contacts at my Ivy League university; I don't know how to actually do things."

"This came down from up top."
Translation: "I have no real power."

"I can't give you an answer at this moment. Let me survey the situation and see what we can leverage out of it."
Translation: "Oh God, I wish I was still in sales!"

"It's good to see you take such bold initiative!"
Translation: "You are a threat to me. You will be fired the next time we so much as run out of coffee."

"I'll think about it."
Translation: "I'll tell you no in an e-mail, long after I've left the office."

"Did you finish those projections I asked you about on Friday?"
Translation: "I completely forgot to ask you about the projections on Friday, and I'm hoping your memory is even worse than mine."

"This is a very sensitive issue."
Translation: "I may need you to shred some documents."

"Let's push the boundaries on this one. We need something really innovative! Throw out the conventions, I want something edgy!"
Translation: "Present only safe, traditional ideas to me. I wouldn't know what to do with innovation if my life depended on it."

"We're going to be pulling some long hours and I'll be right here with the rest of you."
Translation: "My home life is miserable."

"I hate to be the bearer of bad news."
Translation: "Disappointing you is the only pleasure I have left in my dead-end, crappy job."

10 things you didnt know about you

10. Your Stomach Secretes Corrosive Acid:
There's one dangerous liquid no airport security can confiscate from you: It's in
your gut. Your stomach cells secrete hydrochloric acid, a corrosive compound used to treat metals in the industrial world. It can pickle steel, but mucous lining the stomach wall keeps this poisonous liquid safely in the digestive system, breaking down lunch.

9. Body Position Affects Your Memory:
Can't remember your anniversary, hubby? Try getting down on one knee.
Memories are highly embodied in our senses. A scent or sound may evoke a distant episode from one's childhood. The connections can be obvious (a bicycle bell makes you remember your old paper route) or inscrutable. A recent study helps decipher some of this embodiment. An article in the January 2007 issue of Cognition reports that episodes from your past are remembered faster and better while in a body position similar to the pose struck during the event.

8. Bones Break (Down) to Balance Minerals:
In addition to supporting the bag of organs and
muscles that is our body, bones help regulate our calcium levels. Bones contain both phosphorus and calcium, the latter of which is needed by muscles and nerves. If the element is in short supply, certain hormones will cause bones to break downeupping calcium levels in the bodyeuntil the appropriate extracellular concentration is reached.

7. Much of a Meal is Food For Thought:
Though it makes up only 2 percent of our total body weight, the
brain demands 20 percent of the body's oxygen and calories. To keep our noggin well-stocked with resources, three major cerebral arteries are constantly pumping in oxygen. A blockage or break in one of them starves brain cells of the energy they require to function, impairing the functions controlled by that region. This is a stroke.

6. Thousands of Eggs Unused by Ovaries:
When a woman reaches her late 40s or early 50s, the monthly
menstrual cycle that controls her hormone levels and readies ova for insemination ceases. Her ovaries have been producing less and less estrogen, inciting physical and emotional changes across her body. Her underdeveloped egg follicles begin to fail to release ova as regularly as before. The average adolescent girl has 34,000 underdeveloped egg follicles, although only 350 or so mature during her life (at the rate of about one per month). The unused egg follicles then deteriorate. With no potential pregnancy on the horizon, the brain can stop managing the release of ova.

5. Puberty Reshapes Brain Structure, Makes for Missed Curfews:
We know that hormone-fueled changes in the body are necessary to encourage growth and ready the body for
reproduction. But why is adolescence so emotionally unpleasant? Hormones like testosterone actually influence the development of neurons in the brain, and the changes made to brain structure have many behavioral consequences. Expect emotional awkwardness, apathy and poor decision-making skills as regions in the frontal cortex mature.

4. Cell Hairs Move Mucus:
Most cells in our bodies sport hair-like organelles called cilia that help out with a variety of functions, from
digestion to hearing. In the nose, cilia help to drain mucus from the nasal cavity down to the throat. Cold weather slows down the draining process, causing a mucus backup that can leave you with snotty sleeves. Swollen nasal membranes or condensation can also cause a stuffed schnozzle.

3. Big Brains Cause Cramped Mouths:
Evolution isn't perfect. If it were, we might have wings instead of wisdom teeth. Sometimes useless features stick around in a species simply because they're not doing much harm. But wisdom teeth weren't always a cash crop for oral surgeons. Long ago, they served as a useful third set of meat-mashing molars. But as our brains grew our jawbone structure changed, leaving us with expensively overcrowded mouths.

2. The World Laughs with You:
Just as watching someone
yawn can induce the behavior in yourself, recent evidence suggests that laughter is a social cue for mimicry. Hearing a laugh actually stimulates the brain region associated with facial movements. Mimicry plays an important role in social interaction. Cues like sneezing, laughing, crying and yawning may be ways of creating strong social bonds within a group.

1. Your Skin Has Four Colors:
All skin, without coloring, would appear creamy white. Near-surface
blood vessels add a blush of red. A yellow pigment also tints the canvas. Lastly, sepia-toned melanin, created in response to ultraviolet rays, appears black in large amounts. These four hues mix in different proportions to create the skin colors of all the peoples of Earth.

Technology widens rich-poor gap

OIL has made us billions and fuelled our economic stability, but oil has also become the bane of our existence. For some, it is a curse that has caused poverty and corruption, but for others it is an essential source of untold wealth and power. But as the gap between rich and poor countries continues to expand, it is clear that intellectual capital and technology rule the world, and that natural resources such as oil, gold, and diamonds are no longer the primary determinants of wealth.

Surprisingly, nations with few natural resources demonstrate greater economic growth rates than OPEC countries. Japan's economic growth, driven by technological superiority, outpaces that of Saudi Arabia; South Korea is growing faster than oil-rich Nigeria; and Taiwan's economy has moved well beyond that of oil-rich Venezuela. The United States and Norway are also rich in oil, yet their staggering economic growth comes from intellectual capital.
In reality, it is not money but intellectual capital that drives prosperity. More important, perhaps, is the reality that poverty is driven and sustained by a lack of intellectual capital. The intimate relationship between intellectual capital and economic growth is as old as humanity itself, and is well illustrated by this parable from ancient Babylon (modern-day Iraq).

A man asked his children:
"If you had a choice between the clay of wisdom or a bag of gold, which would you choose?"
"The bag of gold, the bag of gold" the naive children cried, not realising that wisdom had the potential to earn them many more bags of gold in the future.
Seven thousand years later, Iraq - the cradle of civilisation - has its own private bag of gold as it sits perched atop the world's third largest oil reserves.

Meanwhile, Israel, tucked away in the hostile terrain of a barren desert, has the clay of wisdom - the weightless wealth of intellectual capital embodied in the collective mind of its people. The striking economic gap that persists between rich and poor nations has increased sevenfold over the past century to what is now an all-time high. The accumulation of intellectual capital by rich nations has helped broaden this gap because it has enabled them to control technology and collect hidden taxes from less affluent nations. For instance, Nigeria pays a 40 per cent "royalty" tax on its petroleum revenues to foreign oil companies that are ripping out its family jewels - the huge store of wealth in its oilfields. These oilfields started forming when prehistoric, dog-sized humans - our common ancestor with the apes - walked African grasslands on four legs.

It's a shocking reality, but the deep oil reserves laid down by Mother Nature millions of years ago and nurtured through the millennia in Africa have been whittled away within decades. And, for the dubious privilege of surrendering its natural resources forever, Nigeria is required to pay half its petroleum revenue in the form of "royalties" to the rich kids on the global block, the United States and the Netherlands. That oilfield has been exchanged for a bowl of porridge, and the black gold that should serve the under-served in Nigeria is helping wealthy Westerners get wealthier.

Today, half the world's population - three billion people - live on an average of $500 a year. In contrast, Bill Gates earns $500 every second. By controlling technology and taxing computer users, Gates has become wealthier than each of the 70 poorest nations on earth and using his financial might has conquered more territory than Genghis Khan, Julius Caesar and Alexander the Great combined.

While Bill Gates is the new millennium's Prince of Technology, he is by no means the first to have taken on the huge potential offered by the realm of technology. The Romans used roads and military technology to expand their empire. And, for centuries, Britain ruled a quarter of the Earth due to its unparalleled ability to command maritime technology and conquer the Seven Seas. Britain undoubtedly established itself as the world's first superpower through its rapid and ruthless colonial expansion programme. The British raised the Union Jack over Canada and Australia, India and Hong Kong, Egypt and Kenya, and countless other countries - even the United States. The Union Jack cast its shadow in every global time zone, giving rise to the saying, "The sun never sets on the British Empire," a fact that was cold comfort to the colonised nations.

In the same way, the United States has embraced its technological supremacy, both offensively and defensively, to build its own global empire without a physical presence in any of its "colonies." The sole remaining superpower is at the forefront of every major technological advancement, which it has used to become deeply embedded in three-quarters of the globe. The U.S. has accomplished a virtual economic colonisation manifesting its presence throughout the globe by harnessing the power of technology and capitalising on its clay of wisdom.
Africa's inability to realise its potential and embrace technology has left it at the mercy of the West. The time has come for Africa to seize the day and resist the efforts of America and others to leave their imprint and plunder its natural resources. Numerous examples throughout history support the idea that technology can be used as a tool of oppression. And there's little doubt that America's technological advancement has allowed it to exploit natural resources around the world.

This is particularly evident in Africa, where the U.S. is exploiting oilfields beneath the pristine rainforest - and being rewarded with a 40-per cent tax at the expense of the African people. This lends credence to history's assertion that those who control technology oppress those who do not, eventually enslaving them and, finally, wielding power around the globe.

I've just realized I'm so accustomed to posting articles written by others, and I'm wanting something a little original so here goes.... The website I got this excerpt from talked about what ladies should do, and as usual I found myself checking dat which I've done and not done and I'm forced to wonder do these dating rules REALLY help?? I agree there are general guidelines but in a bid to follow soooooo many rules, is the relationship not bound to suffer a lot of lapses?? do guys ACTUALLY follow dating rules? or are chics the only ones who bother themselves with how happy they are, want to be, how they can make their SO,s happy etc...
Well, at the end of the day my own conclusion is that for MY relationship to succeed for me i'll make MY RULES. Of course they'd be inspired by others but the thing is manipulate them all to a way that you'd be happy at the end of the day.......of course attitude too goes a long way bcos when an individual male/female goes into relationships with a superior or an inferior attitude, then there's going to be a problem...but when there's mutual respect and consideration for the other party, hopefully you should end up just fine with d the rules you make...look out for yourself while looking out for the other...dat's one of my new rules....

Seven Deadly Dating Sins

Hey bloggers look what I found.......

In the dating world, there are certain
things you just don't do. Okay, to be fair, we all do them—but we wish there had been someone there to tell us not to! In this excerpt from Sex with Your Ex, Yvonne K. Fulbright, Ph.D. clearly lays out the seven biggest dating sins for all the world to see (and avoid). So next time that little voice in your head tells you to pull a When Harry Met Sally in bed tonight or check your ex's away message, you'll know better!

1. Never have sex with your ex
The hard fact is that having sex with your ex-boyfriend, ex-husband, ex-partner, ex-one-night-stand, ex-whatever is playing with fire on too many levels for it ever to be the truly right thing to do. Strong feelings will resurface. You may long for him in ways that will surprise you. You may have to fight an overpowering lust. Powerful sex-triggered hormones in your body can make you think you're falling in love again. You will have amnesia about the reasons you're no longer together and be sucked into a fantasy of "happily ever after" this time. You will be tempted to think only of the good times, and you may even find yourself thinking about what could have been, what might still be ... stop that.

2. Never let him keep photos of you in your birthday suit
No matter how you feel about newsstand porn, the thought of being the star of your very own birthday-suit shoot can be totally titillating. Plus its an opportunity to flirt with one cute photographer, especially if he helps you strip down to your tan lines! Yet, in capturing the thrilling moment, make sure that you, and only you, have access to these rare glimpses of you in your "finest" form. While Mother Nature meant for you to be nude, society isn't in agreement with her on this one. And your actual mother might not like it too much either, should she stumble on your nudie pix on the Internet!

3. Never use the toilet in front of your partner
Some couples feel that they should be able to do and say anything in front of each other, even if it's not always so pretty. And it's true, with closeness in a relationship comes an ease and openness about certain things that early in a relationship you'd never dream of doing in front of your partner—using your menstrual heating pad, flossing, adjusting your thong along your butt crack, or picking at a pimple, for instance. However, most people would agree that there needs to be some sort of limit. This is especially true when it comes to using the loo. There are just some things you don't need to know about each other—or at least share—and the vision of doing a #2 tops the list.

4. Never write your ex a letter letting him know "how you feel"
There is a reason they call them breakups, you know. You're breaking off and moving on—with an emphasis on the moving on part. Writing your ex a letter will get in the way of your moving on. In fact, if you cave at this point, after all of the work you've done in
getting yourself to a better place, you'll probably reverse all the healing and progress you've made since breaking up. You'll relive all the pain, make yourself vulnerable to more pain by putting your heart out there unprotected, and you'll probably get caught in a roller-coaster ride of unrealistically high hopes and anguished disappointment. So don't do it. He's put you though enough. If it's mean to happen again, let him make the first move.

5. Never fake orgasm
This one's worth repeating: Never fake orgasm—even if you think faking it is a selfless, compassionate act that will spare his feelings. All you do is deprive yourself of
sexual fulfillment (if climaxing is your goal) and give him a false sense of rock-star status. Just think of how his ego will be blown if he ever finds out—and you thought you were doing it to make him feel good! In addition, every time you feign climax, you train your body to believe that the fake orgasm is all it's getting. In other words, you develop a habit that desensitizes you and makes it more difficult for you to attain orgasm for real. You end up settling in the sack. That's not the point of sex!

6. Never drop your girlfriends for your guy
We've all had that girlfriend, the one who always seems to disappear when she has a boyfriend or significant other. She's MIA until the second they're on the rocks or done. Then guess who's calling you, crying on your shoulder, longing for support, wailing that she's doomed to be alone...until she finds the next one. If you find that you're guilty of being that kind of friend yourself, rethink whether any guy is worth the cost of abandoning your social circle. When you ditch your friends for your Romeo, you're creating a
toxic, one-way friendship, and your friends are not obligated to stick around after you've dropped them. If you don't nurture your friendships the way you do your relationship, you may find yourself dumped by everyone the next time you have a breakup.

7. Never keep your ex in your phone or on your buddy list
After you drop his toothbrush in the toilet—oops!—the first thing you should do after a nasty breakup is to get him off your radar. Completely. That means removing his number from your cell phone, getting him off any speed dials, and bumping him off your buddy lists online. Why this draconian purging? If the relationship and breakup were intense and emotional, it can be hard to wash him out of your hair. For many people, getting rid of all contact info is an important part of healing and finally being able to move on. And if you still have feelings for your ex—good or bad—having that number or buddy user name available at the press of a button makes it all too easy to put off the healing that needs to be done with a call or message.

A woman's dilemma...

I found dis one funny......

1. The nice men are ugly.
2. The handsome men are not nice.
3. The handsome and nice men are gay.
4. The handsome, nice and heterosexual men are married.
5. The men who are not so handsome, but are nice men, have no money.
6. The men who are not so handsome, but are nice men with money think we are only after their money.
7. The handsome men without money are after our money.
8. The handsome men, who are not so nice and somewhat heterosexual, don't think we are beautiful enough.
9. The men who think we are beautiful, that are heterosexual, somewhat nice and have money, are cowards.
10. The men who are somewhat handsome, somewhat nice and have some money and thank God are heterosexual, are shy and NEVER MAKE THE FIRST MOVE!!!!
11. The men who never make the first move, automatically lose interest in us when we take the initiative.


Men are like a fine wine. They all start out like grapes, and it's a woman's job to stomp on them and keep them in the dark until they mature intosomething you'd like to have dinner with....

Homeowner Offers Burglar Breakfast
Suspect Wanted By Police
POSTED: 8:45 am EDT September 24, 2007
UPDATED: 3:24 pm EDT September 24, 2007

SAN ANTONIO -- A man said he had a heart-to-heart conversation with an armed burglar over a cup of coffee after he found him stealing his belongings from his home on Sept. 11, KSAT-TV in San Antonio reported.
Steve Swanson said he found a man, whom police suspect is Armando Hernandez, stealing items from his home.
"I said, 'What are you doing here?'" Swanson said. "He said, 'I'm taking your stuff, and it's too bad you showed up.'"
Swanson said the man was carrying a knife in one hand and a gun in the other, but he didn't panic.
"I said, 'You don't want to do this. First of all, if you harm me or kill me, I'm just going to go to heaven. You're going to go to prison forever,'" Swanson said.
Swanson said he gave the burglar all the money in his wallet and offered to listen to his problems over breakfast.
He said the man told him he couldn't pay his bills or afford to buy food for himself.
Swanson said he ended their conversation with a prayer and a hug.
He said he convinced the man to give him back two pillowcases full of stolen items.
However, Swanson said, the burglar still got away with some of his wife's expensive jewelry.
Swanson said he notified police only for insurance purposes.
Swanson said he would have upheld his promise to let the thief go had he not taken the items.
Swanson said he believes the men crossed paths for a reason.
"I do believe God put us together and protected me," he said.

My Joke for today

Wild Irish Ho's

An Irish daughter had not been home for over five years. Upon her return, her father cursed her.

"Where have ye been all this time? Why did ye not write to us, not even a line? Why didn't ye call? Can ye not understand what ye put yer old mum thru?"

The girl, crying, replied, "Sniff, sniff... Dad... I became a prostitute..."

"Ye what!!? Out of here, ye shameless harlot! Sinner! You're a disgrace to this family."

"OK, Dad -- as ye wish. I just came back to give mum this luxurious fur coat, title deed to a ten bedroom mansion plus a savings certificate for $5 million."

"For me little brother, this gold Rolex and for ye daddy, the sparkling new Mercedes limited edition convertible that's parked outside plus a membership to the country club... (takes a breath)... and an invitation for ye all to spend New Years' Eve on board my new yacht in the Riviera , and..."

"Now what was it ye said ye had become?" says dad.

Girl, crying again, "Sniff, sniff....a prostitute dad! Sniff, sniff.

"Oh! Be Jesus! Ye scared me half to death, girl! I thought ye said a Protestant. Come here and give yer old man a hug."

A peep into a man's[underwear] world

Boxers versus Briefs
A comparative essay

By Bruce McBaxter

Sure, laugh all you want, but briefs have been my closest companions all these few decades of my life. There's nowhere I haven't gone without them—school, work, airplanes, the subway, stores, ferries, soccer pitches, ski hills, ocean-faring container ships, Wall Drug in South Dakota, a baptism dunk tank, Finland, traffic court, the great American wilderness, Grand Central Station, Tijuana. Even, occasionally, the swimming pool. I suspect you'd say the same for whatever you're wearing under your pants—assuming you're wearing anything at all.

Underwear is one of the great human equalizers. That rich guy in the mansion on the hill? He wears underwear, just like you do. Of course his is made of pure silk woven with fine threads of real gold, but that's beside the point. He wears them. You wear them. You guys are simpatico.

For most men, that's about as complex as underwear gets. They're not something we think—or talk—much about. A non-scientific survey of the guys who live on my street reveals … nothing. I have no idea whether my male neighbors wear boxers or briefs—or the much-ballyhooed boxer-briefs, or thongs, or women's underwear—because the "Hi, how ya doin'? So whatchya got on under there?" line of casual questioning will likely lead to a slow backing away followed by an uncomfortable stare and the closing of doors and drapes when you later step outside.

Unlike the sensual relationship many women have with their undergarments, men don't spend a lot of time thinking about underwear. We find a brand and fit that work and we stick with it. If we spend time thinking about our underwear—because they're too tight or too loose or won't stay put—it's a bad day in Dodge.

Even shopping for underwear is blasé. At the department store (have you noticed there isn't a Victoria's Secret retail equivalent for men?), where everything from silk to cotton to nylon undergarments available in various sizes, lengths, and stretches are available, men generally sneak up to the shelf containing their skivvies of choice, maybe hide them under the shirt they're thinking of buying as they walk around, and pay for them with as little conversation as possible. Put them in a bag and get out.

When it comes to briefs versus boxers, I suspect that most guys my age (37) went into adulthood wearing whatever style of underwear they were given right after potty training. This was probably the same style Dad wore all those years down in the coal mine. Perhaps because the Vietnam generation didn't have Eminem's drooping pants-waist as a cultural icon, the wearing of boxers was less of a fashion benchmark than it is today. I am vaguely aware of a switching-to-boxers revolution occurring in the mid-1990s, but by then I was out of college and well on the road to wherever it is I'm going. I didn't then, nor do I today, have frat brothers to impress.

And yet, after half a lifetime of wearing proud-to-be-me tighty whities, I recently gave traditional boxers a two-week test drive. My primary impetus was to get some relief during a summer heat wave. As the temperature crept over 85 (yep, that's a heat wave in Seattle), I felt a palpably greater degree of sweating and discomfort in the nether regions like never before. What I pined for was air—as in, circulation. As the mercury rose, those tight cotton briefs turned into fiberglass insulating foam. New thoughts into the nature of genital garmentation were born and I was suddenly on a mission.

While some would correlate the personalities of briefs and boxers wearers to those of PC and Mac users, or those who prefer vanilla to double-fudge chunk rocky road, I say nay. It isn't that black and white. When it comes to choosing briefs, boxers, or the middle-ground boxer briefs, you have to take the whole package (pardon the pun) into account, which includes a fair evaluation of each of the four universally accepted Underwear Factors: Dribble, Dangle, Dazzle, and Double.Call me an "understudy" if you will, but here's what I learned during my two-week briefs re-evaluation. All garments sampled were of reputable quality and roughly the middle of the price range.

Let's face it—you don't always get every last little bit of drainage out of your system when standing at the urinal. The nice thing about close-fitting cotton briefs is that any liquid reserve that makes its way to freedom is nicely absorbed. With loose-fitting boxers, I found said reserve sometimes traveling down my pant leg. Nope, it's not a pretty image or feeling knowing you mildly pissed yourself and it may be showing. Sure, this could be chalked up to "operator error," but when you've spent a lifetime not knowing such a problem could exist, perhaps a grace period is permitted. Either way, this could be an ongoing problem—and those extra few second standing and shaking at the loo is time taken away from a Lost commercial break.Advantage: briefs and boxer briefs.

One of the reasons I—and I suspect it's true for many others—have stuck with briefs over the years is because of the snug feeling they give. Everything more or less feels held together. This is especially true where sports are concerned, but it's nice even for just regular old walking around (insert Elaine's Seinfeld quote here). For boxers adherents, I suspect the looseness is just as appealing. The preference may also have to do with natural endowment—either the need for more room or for "police line do not cross" style containment. Some claim that briefs reduce sperm count, but my two happy offspring that arrived all too easily seem to counter that argument.Advantage: three-way tie due to personal preference.

I'm not one to prattle about aimlessly in my bare necessities, but in certain situations—say the locker room or the bedroom—if you want to avoid ridicule, even some gentle teasing from your significant other, briefs probably aren't the way to go. I can say for certain my wife likes the appearance of boxers far more than the other two options. And if I'm going to be the butt of a mysterious de-pantsing in public, I'd rather be left standing at the bus stop in something that resembles shorts over a slightly more materialized jock strap.Advantage: boxers.

The "double" I refer to is the roughly double amount of material one needs to stuff into his pants—and keep it there—while wearing boxers and boxer briefs. This was consistently the most frustrating aspect during my two-week underwear assessment. With briefs there's no worry. You put them on and for the most part they stay put. With loose-fitting boxers I had to keep tucking them in at the store, in the parking lot, at my son's preschool. I also found certain pairs of low-waisted jeans didn't want to stay on my waist while worn over boxers. This wasn't fun. And while boxer briefs are a tad less moveable by design than loose-fitting boxers, I encountered with them a different problem—they wanted to rise up my leg. I realize there are boxer designs out there that try to combat these migration issues, but I suspect this is a problem endemic to the anti-brief.Advantage: briefsAnd so, on the balance, this guy is sticking with briefs. I have a drawer full of boxers and boxer briefs now, so there may be times I'll wear something different—especially if the certain somebody in my life persists in smirking and calling my briefs tighty whities. But the mild ridicule is a good trade for not having to think about what's under my pants—and where it's creeping to next.

This is so wild...............

A Scorned Husband
Sunday, June 26, 2005

I heard of a story that was so comical but managed to send the right message across. Though it was jungle justice, I quite understand why laws were taken into certain hands and pray that people learn a thing or two from it. They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned but this time it was a case of hell hath no fury like a man’s dignity stolen from him! Apparently some man’s wife was having an affair with another woman’s husband. You might say, " Same old, same old! Yawn, yawn”. But ah ha, there is a twist to this one! When the man found out through the other man’s wife, as is usually the case, he called his own wife to order and cautioned her to stop her atrocious crime and she promised to keep her legs crossed to all and sundry except him. But much as the woman tried, Mr. Boyfriend would not let her be! He bombarded her with flowers, texts, money and what have you! So relentless was he in his pursuit that she fell prey to his advances finding it difficult to resist the allure of the so-called ‘forbidden fruit’. This time though, she was a lot more discreet but she obviously underestimated the tentacles of her husband who had both his eyes and ears to the ground this time around. No do, no do, when her husband found out yet again that she was still collecting ‘jara’ from her erstwhile lover, he decided, once and for all, to deal with the other party this time, man to man.

Unknown to Mr. Boyfriend, the husband hired somebody to stalk him while he decided on how to deal with him. One fine evening, his spy tailed the guy to a hotel he had apparently booked for another rendezvous with his wife. The husband cross-checked at home and realized the wife was planning to go and visit her ‘aunty’. He feigned ignorance but noticed the glint in her eyes, which she was too euphoric anticipation of her forthcoming tryst to conceal. But like a man looking at the bigger picture, he swallowed his pride and took it all in his stride knowing his plan for that evening would bring her to her senses fast enough! Funny enough all along, and even up to this moment, he had no intention of leaving his wife and was ready to do literally anything to keep her. But after she got dressed ready to leave for her ‘aunt’s’, he picked a huge fight with her, seized her mobile phone, took the land phone out of the bedroom, locked her inside there, also locked the front door and even the gate then warned her that if she as much as even called for the maiguard, he would kill her on his return! Something told her he wasn’t joking so she wisely respected herself and did as instructed. That is another thing about adulterers. No matter how the secret affair is doing them gizz gizz, they know when to call themselves to order and she was not prepared to throw her marriage to the dogs no matter how sweet Mr. Boyfriend’s flavor was! If we dey cry make we see road! They call it last card check! You might ask how the husband found out about their rendezvous, but chill first.

My advice to straying women, beware of your staff more so drivers, especially the long term ones! Apparently hubby was gathering potential information from the driver who was singing like a canary! Money talks. With his weapon of knowledge, he decided to kill the rat in his marriage once and for all! On getting to the venue for the ‘love fest’ (thanks to her driver), he proceeded with three of his friends to hotel room. The imprisoned wife had no way of reaching her lover to tell him the change of plans and besides, she was oblivious of her husband’s game plan. Little did she know the impending doom about to befall her sweetheart. And even if she did, was she going to uproot the burglary proof at the window in her bid to get out? She wrongly assumed her husband was acting on one of his jealous rages and understandably took it in her stride. She just felt if her lover did not hear from her he would know the coast is not clear and understand the unspoken rule in infidelity, which is once you do not hear from each other, you do not call because the silence in itself is a message. Anyway, the husband located the room number like a seasoned detective. A role he did not think he would ever play when he was blissfully saying ‘I do’. Ah! Life and it’s unending surprises huh? The things we do for love. Was he carrying a gun to the hotel you ask? Oh no! That is too conventional but I can a sure you the ‘weapon’ he used did a lot more damage! Besides, as it was not a Western movie, a gun was not appropriate though very tempting at the time I might add. His weapon, my dear, was in human form. You see, a few days before, hussy and his friends had painstakingly concocted a plan they knew would leave a dent in Mr. Boyfriend’s memory for the rest of his life! Apparently they searched and found a heavily built raging homosexual whose stature wasn’t the only thing gigantic about him! Catch my drift? Let’s just say he was the envy of many men who were relieved he was homosexual! Apparently as the Crown King of faggots, he had been known to initiate even the most unwilling members into his ‘world’. Don’t ask me how they located this specimen but when you are pushed to the wall you would be amazed at how fermented your mind can get. Since the matter on hand was a ‘d…. thing’ the scorned husband thought the best message to give his trespasser was to give him a taste of his own medicine only this time, through a different entrance! Getting the picture now? Hang on, story never finish, don’t rush me I beg!

Anyway with Crown King in tow, together with his friends, all five able bodied men headed for the culprit’s room. They had wisely gotten a waiter to escort them and asked him to knock on the door claiming to be Room Service, which is another thing for erstwhile lovers to watch out for! Don’t be so quick to open up as you never know who or what might be waiting for you on the other side! Yes, there was ‘room service’ quite all right but certainly not the kind he had in mind! When the waiter knocked, they all stepped out of view. Mr. Boyfriend whistled to the door (in a good mood naturally) and casually enquired who it was. As soon as he heard ‘room service’ he opened the door clad in a toweling robe as he’d just had a shower. Greatest mistake of his life! I must say he was ‘the whole nine yards’ kinda man. He wanted to make the most of the hotels’ services and spoil himself a little before devouring another man’s wife with glee. After all he paid for it and deserved his money’s worth not so? I’m sure he must have also done a few sit-ups for good measure as he had his ‘stud’ image to protect huh? But as soon as he saw his ‘guests’, he knew they were not there for a cup of coffee and ‘sweet sensation’ was not on the menu for that day! Even if the husband had second thoughts about his revenge, just seeing his wife’s lover semi-naked in a robe must have refueled his anger!! For one millisecond, Mr. Boyfriend must have closed his eyes and wished he was far far away from what was before him but alas reality brought him back to earth with ten angry eyes staring at him!! He realized his fatal mistake and made a futile attempt to shut the door but was overpowered by five irate men who imagined the same thing happening to their wives! (Minus Crown King of course, as women were obviously not his thing).

As we all know, nothing can fuel a man’s fire more than imagining another man on top of his jewel! Very few things top that on the list of ‘10 reasons to kill’ or what do you think? As soon as they barged in, they paid the waiter off and warned him not to tell a soul what he had just witnessed. Being a man and probably a married one, he nodded understandably. Of course by this time, Mr. Boyfriend was on his knees begging for mercy like his life depended on it. Which it did really! He wisely chose not to mention God in the scheme of things. In his mind he must have known that would not augur well considering the circumstances. Of course his pleas fell on deaf ears. He was a quivering mess with catarrh running down his nostrils unabashedly but at that point, I’m positive he did not give a flying toss about his looks and probably blamed it, albeit briefly, for putting him in this predicament. He was wailing like a village woman, dignity and decorum long forgotten. And nobody thought to take a camera? It would have made interesting viewing for later with some chilled beer for good measure. As soon as Crown King was given the go-ahead, the remaining four men pinned him down against the table while Mr. Boyfriend made his debut, albeit forcefully, into the world of sodomy! There was a lot of moaning and grunting as is the case with copulation, but something tells me it wasn’t one of pleasure as is the case with his punisher’s wife. During the ‘ritual’ the friends kept on telling him “That is what you get for sleeping with another man’s wife!" Only after the act, did the husband lean to him and say in the calmest whisper, “This is just a taste of what is to come should you touch my wife again!" I bet the message, though quietly said, was the loudest whisper Mr. Boyfriend had ever heard in his life! Rape is bad and horrible for women. It is emotionally wrenching and physically repulsive but it cannot hold a candle next to enforced sodomy. I can only imagine it would be tenfold for a man! Only a heterosexual man can fathom the excruciating pain, both mental and physical, of enforced sodomy more so initiated by a rival. But only a scorned husband would cause another man that kind of pain. He watched the victim cry bitter tears. He saw the shame in his eyes that far outweighed his physical pain and he felt vindicated knowing the guy has walked the same journey of anguish like he, the husband had walked in the past few months. Gone was the charm, gone was the wit, gone was the finesse that embodied Mr. Charming Personified. In its place was a beaten, broken man. Physically, emotionally and spiritually, he was destroyed in every sense of the word and all for what? Five minutes of pleasure or maximum 10/20 minutes on a good day? He just knelt down and covered his sore blood stained anus with his towel trying, albeit failing woefully, to salvage some form of respectability considering the circumstances. He could not even muster the strength to voice an apology to the scorned husband because his punishment had put paid to that.

Never in his wildest dreams did he expect what befell him. He must have thought he was beyond reproach otherwise why else would he still continue a relationship with a woman whose husband had not only found out, but had warned her about? Who was he going to report the case to now? What judge would give him a listening ear? Was he ready to go public with the rape charge? Was he ready to let the world know he had been sodomized and why? How was he going to explain his bleeding ‘used-to-be virgin’ backside to his wife at home? Would he be able to take a crap for the next few days? Those were questions that ran through my mind and I’m sure must have run through his mind in his sober moment of reflection. He crossed the line and paid a very high price. Now, most men might not go that far but you can never underestimate the wrath of a man when it comes to revenge. So you men out there thinking you are having one up on another man’s property, remember this story o! Be warned!!!
