My Baby’s Baby

Yesterday was a very stressful day for me. From beginning to the end. Before I found out that my husband was cheating on me, I had woken up with a terrible headache and I discovered that I had drooled all over the pillow. Stripping the pillow off its case, my eyes caught the corner where my husband keeps his laptop bag. Empty. I dropped the pillow case and pick up

My Groom?

I used to always hear about it but I never imagined that it’ll happen to me. It was one of those things like Ebola or HIV/AIDS or Winning the lottery that never happened to me; maybe others but not me. And I was mutually not interested in it.  I had been dating Dennis for a little over two years before it happened. We had talked about marriage several times and

Sticks and Stones

My mother always said, ‘There are three things that can happen if people throw stones at you. One, you can take the stone and use it with your catapult to attack others. Two, you can take the stones and be swallowing them until they kill you. And three, you can take the stones and use them to build a house’  I never gave much thought to those words until my

She Said What?

Prompt: Feb 21 Undo If you could un-invent something, what would it be? Discuss why, potential repercussions, or a possible alternative.   How We Met: Gideon Tundun and I met in the University of Lagos. I was in my third year and she was in her first year. We had both volunteered on a charity project in Ilaje and we automatically bonded. For me, it was admiration at first sight.

My 1984 Situation

Prompt: January 9 1984 You’re locked in a room with your greatest fear. Describe what’s in the room.   ‘Now, if you would turn with me to the book of Matthew, Matthew Chapter 10, we would be reading from verse 28’, my pastor’s voice rang through the auditorium. ‘Are we there?’ He said as he wiped the sweat from his face. ‘Yes Pastor!’ ‘Great. Now let’s read together. ‘And do

Dear Jude

Dear Jude, This is the 365th letter I am writing to you. I have posted none of them because no one posts letters anymore. Okay, maybe they do – but not in this sense. Even if I wanted to post the letters to you, I do not have an address to send them to. I am writing these letters and keeping them in an Indomie box under my bed. Sometimes,

My Husband is 45!

She walked to the make-shift stage in the room in her lovely lovely leaf green dress and gently hit her glass with a small spoon. ‘I want to give a speech for and to my husband’ she said, smiling her radiant smile. The room went hush save from the whisperings from some of the guest. Other guests just cast furtive glances and looked rather uncomfortable. She proceeded nevertheless. ‘Good evening

I Want To Tell You…

I want to tell you of how I’m hanging by an almost-invisible string of happiness; How I walk on eggshells around myself, afraid that my thin smile might just break into uncontrollably bawling. I want to tell you how I feel when I look at all my friends laughing like they have no worries in the world; How I feel when I see her, most especially, having the most perfect

The Diary of the Groom

 28.04.2015  Dear Ademi Diary,  Baby, I don’t know why you’re making me write to a diary when what I really just want to do is talk to you about this. But if you would rather read what I have to say, then I guess I’d be an Achebe for you. I know a lot of questions are running through your mind. And I know that you’re at war as to
