The wild side of Bijouxoxo

It's 3 a.m. and i'm still awake. Before u start thinking that i'm suffering from insomnia, NO, that's not the case. I was on the phone talking to O for 2.5 hrs (ahem, y'all know who O is, remember my primary school classmate i met in OH). We were reminiscing about stuff from way back, and talking about nothing in particular. Just gisting about his family, relationship stuvvs (like why Naija gals front when they like a guy hoping against all hope that the guy would realize and ask 'em out), work and really random stuff o. If na book they say make i come read, i go dey fall asleep, but see me o; i'll do anything for gist.

So the yeye boy was now saying that he's sure there'd be a wild side to me. Something i'd say or do and one goes like, "Oh no! You didn't." As in, i can't be conservative and be a good gal all the time. Imagine dis boi, tryna tarnish my good name just like that. Me too, i started thinking about it. Seriously, i really can't think of anything really wild or outrageous i've done before. Okay, maybe that trip to DC last summer. Or maybe i'm yet to discover my wild side. He even suggested that he's sure with the right person, like with my friends (my paddies from waaaaaaaay back), the wild me may come out. Hmmm, i guess we'll see about that.

'Twas so cool talking to him. The gist was just flowing; he's a correct gister jare. We weren't even cool like that in primary school o. Looks like i've got a gisting partner now. Hold ur horses people, there's nothing more to it. Like i said before, we're just gisting partners.

I know who u are, DO (those are ur initials, right?). Shouldn't u be @ work? When are u starting ur own blog so i can stalk u and all ur under-g runz in that village of urs.

Dilch said...

Hmm,I agree with anon, didn't I say it, when you guys exchanged numbers, now you are talking till 3am when you have school the next day. That's the growth of love jo...Ooh, I remember a song that reminds me of this situtaion - How can we be lovers if we can't be friends (lol)

NaijaBloke said...

Hmmm..just like dilch said.Gisting till early wee wee hrs of the morning.Thatz how it starts o,but come do u want to tell us u r not attracted to the guy at all.
Don't worry ur wild side is creeping up on u slowly.

U take care and nice blog

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

Eyin peeps, gimme a break jo. I was just in the mood for good gist last nite. I knew Dilichi was going to say something. Infact, i was thinking of u and what u'd say when blogging last nite.

For real, Naijabloke, i don't think i'm attracted to the guy. He's an okay guy, nice and friendly, but u never can tell, right?

Belle said...

lolol...i see right through this "gisting" Phenomenon that you speak of..lol

haha...well I guess I'm so unique you could just tell I was d one buggin' you. As per the blogging thing, I started typing on MS Word...and well thats where I left it. Hmm...maybe I'll start. I'm thinking...m thinking. Ok why am I getting excited now? anyways at least I read ur blog and almost all the blogs u enjoy...talk about being a stalker. Well, my epistle is almost over.
How late did you stay up last nite talking to Mr. Ohio? You better not fall for his fake lines. hehe...I guess he is nice. Well enjoy your budding friendship...and whatever else is growing hehe. Have an awesome day!

Thanks Anon. That's it, u used the right term, "a budding friendship." He started out using some fake lines; but when he realized that i'd tell it as it is, he's reverted back to his normal self. No fronting (lol)

Miguel hope u've heard now, it's a "budding friendship," and there's no K-I-S-S-I-N-G in budding friendships, abi? I'll report u to my mumsy that u're tryna corrupt her baby.

Belle, be rest assured it's just gisting for laffs and kicks. Nothing more, u know if there was more to it, u'd be the 1st to know.

ABBEY said...

hmmm missy, I think I know who you met in cleveland. I saw him last summer too, but the boy didn't even remember I went to st.savior's, I guess I didn't do anything significant to him, like get him into trouble!

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

I think u know him, Abbey 'cos it was u he said he saw last summer in Cleveland.

Onada said...

hmmmm 2.5 hours on the phone in the middle of the night??? do i sense a crush here?? :) this how it starts oh!

Miguel said...

Onada naaa they were praying......Night vigil. Its called Tele-playerthon...oops i meant teleplayerthon...arggghhhh... i meant teleprayerthon...lol

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

No Onada, it's far from a crush; it's called a budding friendship.

As for u Miguel, may God help u. Do u want to tell me u haven't done worse?

By the way, i was talking to my girlfriend yesterday, and told her how i sacrificed my sleep by gisting for 2.5 hrs. The yeye gal then said, there's nothing new in that and on 3 occassions, she had a convo from 11p.m to 5a.m with her friend, not a boyfriend oh. Imagine?

Miguel said...

you and ur friend should form a book club...let me know when thats done..."league of extra-ordinary gisters" ...i must confess i have experienced worse...some years ago i remember one babe was chatting with me on the phone..i think we chatted from 9 - 2am..at this point i fell asleep...i woke up at about 6 and the babe was still gisting away...man till today i still don't know how she pulled that off so i decided to date her...well lets just say she talked my ears off...i mean some nights i'd listen with my right ear, other nights i'd listen with my left..when both were tired we broke up...lol

Anonymous said...

hahahaha Buhahaha...@ 'when both were tired we broke up." Great!! that just cracked me up nicely! I'm awake at work now. Thanks Miguel!

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

Abeg jo, Miguel. So u want to tell us u dated her just for her gisting prowess, na lie. I'm sure u must've entertained the gist too, if not, she wouldn't have continued chatting away like a broken down record.

But lemme make things clear here, it was this dude that was gisting away, from one topic to another. He even said he was a midnight gister, when i used style to ask if he was tired.

Belle said...

MIGUEL!!!!!!!!!!!! you are too funny dude! Thanks for the laugh! BWAHAHAHAHAH!

Miguel said...

Bijouxoxo the guy told you that he is a midnight gister and u still stayed on the phone with him for hours? MBA! theres something u are not telling us

DiAmOnD hawk said...

i take you at your word...it's just a budding friendship...you can call me anytime and i can talk with you till whenever...i like to "gist" and im pretty easy to flow with...so I see where you're coming from...till today i have LONG conversations with ppl that i've never met...as in we call each other internationally...these are ppl I met back in the day when HookUpNigerians was IT.

but you never know... :-)

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

Ha! I've found a gisting partner in Diamond hawk. At least someone knows where i'm coming from. But which one is dis, that u're trying to use Naija babe sense for me? I don't think i know u, talk less of having ur phone # and u're saying i can call u anytime to gist.

"You never know" abi? Well done, i see u're a very good gister o, even going as far as int'l calls.

Miguel, oya, have ur say. Here's another "gister," our "league of extra-ordinary gisters" club is being formed little by little. All applications should be sent to me. Anyone cares to join?

Bijou, don't believe him that's what they all say, you never had a wild side and you won't develop one. That's the player coming out, don't feel compelled to do anything you're not comfortable with, I'm sure he's a nice guy but you never know.....
Let God be true and every man be a lier, I think when guys start to get sexually attracted to you they want to know if you trully have a wild side, thats not bad but trying to convince you you're a bad girl too is not quite "kosher"...okay, maybe I'm overeacting, but I'm just trying to protect my sista here.

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

"Sexually attracted to you" Ehn! Please o, i don't think so. Thanks jare, omo dada (good child)for looking out for a sista, Anon.
