Imagine loosing that hunk of a guy above?that’s what happened to me…
I was sitting jejely on my own when this foine specie of a man walked in.I didn’t mind not having a man before he came o,he just came to unnecessarily disrupt my little world.The guy was fine! Tall(I am sure even in heels he’ll still be taller than me),dark(I love dark guys),and he was more than handsome! The features on his face were looking like perfect work of art! Mhen(*fans self) God finish work.I was almost in Love with him,I had already imagined our wedding,our honeymoon,our three perfect kids,how we will be playing lovey dovey and even how we’ll be when we grow old together;yes,in the space of 5minutes my mind was already in overdrive.don’t blame me o,if I am sure you’d do same if na you.And I was also extremely happy because he had been “cutting eyes” at me.Life couldn’t be more perfect yeah?…well,that was until he opened his mouth to speak….
My heart shattered into a thousand pieces.Dreams of a lifetime just dropped like that.hummmph!
You see,two things happened when he spoke;
(1)The “aroma” from his mouth killed me&brought me back to life.
(2)Mr hunk’s “engrish” gave me the goose bumps.
DOUBLE DISASTER for me that day.
I want to plead with all of us today,guys and girls included.Don’t shatter another person’s heart when you speak like mine did to me.its not their fault that they fell for you,pls help them help their selves,don’t scar them for life.
I leave you with two solutions:start taking care of your mouth,brush well,brush your tongues,use mouthwash,see a dentist infact do all the do-able to remove the “aroma of life” from ur mouth and if you know your mouth is susceptible to smell(douse) easily,always carry sweets laced with mints.the second solution will take a little more time sha,go back to learning the basics on speaking good English.You remember the Queens English book we used way back,pick it up again,there’s no harm in doing that.Ask your friends too for anything you aren’t sure of and ofcourse,google is your friend.
Till you inculcate these sha,you can just say yes,no and only your name when approached by someone who fancies you.So as not to shatter hearts unecessarily,trust me,getting over it takes time.Pls don’t do this to us.
Ok,Bye! Have a splendid day!

Lmao. I remember meeting this handsome guy buhh his engrish too was problematic. You know, the mixed tenses kind of problematic. In boarding school then we laughed at , mocked and sang songs for those whose English was poor and all. But in my adult life, I realized how privileged I was that my nursery/primary school was a good one. Not many Nigerians had such fortune. So I never ever laugh at wrong English anymore.
Anyways, I am this girl who loves to have conversations, discussions on news, politics, sometimes entertainment and all. And this guy, though he seems good, cant just keep up. Like, I really felt bad that I had to reduce my intellect so he could flow. Then afterwards, I knew I couldn’t just be in that relationship. Lifes kinda unfair abi. And for the guy learning English at old age, hian. English hard oh, the best time is in childhood.

Loool Lynda, Erm, maybe all hope wasn’t lost..you guys can still converse in his native language? Hehe, i’m being silly.
But seriously, these days I try to get the knowledge someone’s sharing, not the “english” but for relationships, I admit that it’s a different ball game altogether. How do we flow? I don’t know…if God say na him sha, maybe we’ll take classes together..maybe

Hahahahha. This is the funniest thing I’ve heard this whole week!
It’s sad. For me I’ve learnt to not to get moved by the cover and just be a lil patient to find out about the content. My disappointments haven’t been with bad breath or language but personality. I’ve seen some fine brothers who ended up to be just plain BORING.
But all the same I feel your heartbreak. Sorry okay? Lols

Looool Omolara.. I accept your sorries…
Funny deal is I wrote this post in 2013, and I have so grown since then… Yes I knew that looks don’t matter then, but now, God has just been teaching me a lot, 3years down the line and I can say the convictions I have are continually being pruned and re-molded by God.
And welcome! Great to have you on the blog!
