what would your fairy tale world be like?


I was reading a runaway friend's blog and saw this. So I'm taking time out to think about my fairy tale world, would post mine in the comment section soon but while I'm thinking it through you want to tell us what your own fairy tale world be like?

In my own fairy tale world,I’d vacation in heaven! I mean seriously,when it gets stressful down here,I’d go spend two weeks with the angels and the Trinity and be re-energised so I can face it all again!

In my own fairy tale world,I won’t have to “work”. I mean,sit at a desk 9 to 5 everyday. I won’t look forward to pay day or wait for the public holiday on May day. My hobbies would fetch me all the money I need,I’d blog,act ,sing,design, write poetry and still be a millionaire!

In my own fairy tale world,there would be no okadas,(you are wondering what could be faster right?)I’d be able to teleport myself by just thinking of where I want to go! See travelling! I’d be standing in front of my boss receiving instructions on a new client and she no go know say I don dey paris taking pictures in front of the Eiffel Tower!

In my own fairy tale world,my relationship with God would be on point!I’d pray without ceasing,be holy as He is holy. I’d win souls everyday,not be ashamed to talk about Jesus everywhere I go! I’d walk in the fruits of the spirit daily!I’d be sure that my name is in the book of life and whatever time that trumpet,organ,piano sounds,I’d be sure I’d be eating dinner with Jesus and not demons!

In my own fairy tale world,hearts would be incapable of breaking,cause they’d be made of steel,people would not be suffering and smiling and violence against women would be a thing of the past.

In my own fairy tale world,once I see the man I am to marry, the angels would begin singing the hallelujah chorus, our hearts would be locked together with a real life padlock and then we’d jointly go to bar beach and throw the key into the Atlantic ocean! That also translates to no more divorce!

In my own fairy tale world,I’d be the proverbs 31 woman. I’d be slow to anger,quick to love. I’d be the new “Martha Stewart.” The improved “superwoman” I’d cook,clean,cater,serve,love,provide and still look stunning in my six inch stiletto shoes!

In my own fairy tale world,there would be no diseases,so there would be no doctors and therefore no injections(who invented that thing sef?sorry o,doctors no beef intended). We would eat the things we love and still be healthy.

In my own fairy tale world,there would be no Boko haram or alqaeda,no wars or rumours of wars,the stock market won’t crash,and there would be no global melt down!In my own fairy tale world,the whole world would be at peace!

In my own fairy tale world,I won’t be scared of dogs. I’d finally have my own pet;a really cute white skinned bunny!

In my own fairy tale world,mosquitoes would just go ahead and bite rather than sing that silly tune in your ears first!

In my own fairy tale world,I’d have twin baby girls,the cutest in the world,oluwajomiloju and oluwasemilore and I’d “baff” them up so tey,den go beg me say mummy it haf do o!

In my own fairy tale world you’d be able to ” cut and paste” on an electronic typewriter(Only a few people would understand why.)

There would be no dirty Naira notes and for once there would be “change” in Lagos, so when you board a danfo bus,the conductor won’t have to scream”wole pelu change o!)

In my own fairy tale world,PHCN would stop holding power,there would be no traffic jam in Lagos cause our roads would be better and our president would focus on building this nation rather than changing irrelevant things.

In my own fairy tale world,we’d still buy nasco wafers, chocomilo and m & k for 5kobo.Once again our money would have value.

A lot will happen in my own fairy tale world,but above all,every day would be a fairy tale,filled with loads of love,fun and laughter!

What would your fairy tale world be like?

About Last Night


I slept with a smile on my face last night
Last night, I gave a little of me and it made me feel good

I bemoaned how I held out for too long last night
Last night, I got a chance to live and I'm happy I took it
