Musings: My Top Ten

Posted on Updated on







Writing a new year good wishes at this time seems like something most people won’t do (seeing that the year is not so new anymore), but I guess it’s either this scribbler isn’t really like most people or something is not entirely right. I’m more comfortable with the former.

This is several weeks overdue, but I’ll go on regardless and wish readers a wonderful and fruitful new year and new month. On the bright side, I got the opportunity to wish you on the double, probably better than the “gyn-ish” double the Eritrean government supposedly has to offer.

By now, resolutions that would really stay will be in motion already, while the other resolutions―those guidelines for the first few days/weeks of the year that usually fade away with the frenzy―would have met their usual fate: total abandon, or if you like, calamitous waterloo (I miss Honorable Patrick Obahiagbon).

In my defense for my one-month long hiatus post- last post (pardon that combo), I’ve been doing a little reading on the blog, trying to figure the major glitches that caused the bad market last year. Okay, scratch that. That was me being dramatic.

So far, it’s been a long interesting read. I think I found a bit of what I was looking for, in addition to the typos and omissions of course. Some of the posts made me laugh and got me asking myself what I was thinking when I wrote them. I marveled at the experiences I never thought I could share but did. A few were products of testing new waters; attempts at new style/genre. I still can’t pinpoint the ghost readers or send them a little dose of insomnia until they comment and share, but I can do my part and see where it goes from here.

In no particular order, below are my top favorite posts I’ll like you to check:

Dear Future Bae
Sour-prano Untamed
The Judge Next Door
The Things We Share
Client X: The End of Me
Knocked Out
The Things in Your Heart
A Tale of Sevens and Perfection
Sow a Seed
Life Drama

I would love to start the year with your feedback on these posts or any other post that interests you. Perhaps this would help identify a niche or two that should get more devotion.

This is me grinning in anticipation that you’ll read and say what you think.

    I can proudly say I’ve read all save one, not too sure though, but i still doubt I missed any.
    Anyway, ‘Dear Future Bae’ will be my number one, not necessarily cos it Trump-ed the others, but more like ‘cos I can so relate. Soprano-untamed is hilarious too btw.
    Happy new month brah, I won’t call this year a new one anymore! 😒😏

      Matter of fact I should recognize you for always being there. You have no idea how those words and comments make me feel.

      Happy new month and a happy near-new year sir (I insist). 🙂

    Adewoonyin! Lol! Loved reading through all of your posts whenever I have the slightest opportunity to…really don’t have a top ten, even this particular musing interest me…I loved “Dear Future Bae” though! Literally saw another “naughty” side of you.

      🙂 Because you decided not to see the foreword side, seeing the naughty side was simply inevitable. *winks*

      I’m looking forward to hearing from your sis cum blog reader someday. She needs to know she’s on my “Most Wanted” list.

      You made a dark man blush with your lines. Thanks for the kind gestures, even in the midst of the less kind busy schedules.

    Oh, yeah! That church, loudspeaker drama should be Knocked Out yeah?!
    Kikikikikikikiki, it’s hilarious, and mean. Don’t mind me, just typing as they come back to life in my backup memory. 😁
    For what it’s worth, I think you excel in any genre, it is you afterall.
    Welcome back? I say it with renewed faith! 😒😕

      The loudspeaker drama is from The Judge Next Door; Knocked Out is about a deserved surgical knock-out of a too loose mouth. 🙂

      I hope you know you’ve got a handful of sugary lines in your comment. I fear for the life of me that I’ll pass out from the sugar rush!

      Many thanks bruvv.

A tale of sevens and perfection,#iLike,’cos of what it meant at the time of scribbling.Coining a story out of another story,without the latter losing its potency, and the former painting new and interesting perspective is really a daring venture.#SIR. I have read that post up to a dozen times.#Truth. Brother-wound,#iLove,what is the essence of brotherhood that wounds.#thatlinesticked #ididntcheck.Top posts on a top blog from the many top musings of a certain top sir.

      Honorable John Mark, we need palpable evidence(s). Where are your significant Yays? 🙂
      You flatter me, really. All these tops that you’re sharing… I’m not sure I’m of the right fit.

      Thoughts of an Invalid was simply that of an invalid with a piece, a platform and the right amount of data to publicize. I vividly remember your reaction.

      Top top thanks to you bruvv. You rock!

    So, I’ve spent the last couple hours revisiting your top ten and some other posts I feel oughta have made the list…’Unbridled’, ‘The Cycle’, ‘Bullets Are Magical’, ‘Duchess Of The Rings’…pretty much a few of several beyond amazing; as well as perfectly conceived and concocted tales you have up in here! Bottomline Joe,….you churn out memorable tales and excel too, in whatever genre you set your mind to! Versatility’s your game! 😊😄

    Plus, regardless of what you feel will get your readers spellbound and would ultimately appeal to you in the grand scheme of things, your muse gets to be in the driver’s seat, calling the shots and running the show! So, you may wanna take a few steps back and allow your muse the full reins; to guide and dictate to you, where you oughta go and just go with the flow! Its not like you have a choice in the matter anyhow, the muse always wins! 😈😆

    Thanks for keeping us entertained with your juicy writes! They make for great reads and there’s something really nice to say ’bout each and every one piece! Write and rock on Joe, more ink to thy pen! 😃

      Awwww! This comment just knocked me out and then sprinkled resuscitating cold water on my face. It’s so wow-ing, I kid not; very “tickling” to know all these.

      Thanks for this juicy comment, and all the several encouraging juicy comments in the past, juicy one. 🙂
