Barely Legal

He’s Grenadian, brown- skinned, an incredibly talented basketball player at 6 ft 8, and possibly one of the most beautiful guys I ever met… ever!

His name is really unique… but for the purposes of this blog, I’ll call him Achilles.

This guy is abominably sexy… and smart.

We met on Saturday night at a friends place…

He smiled at me… I smiled back.

We talked and talked… the things we’ve done, the things we do... the things we plan to do.

He spends a lot of his spare time playing basketball… and found it incredibly funny when I didn’t know what an MVP was (because I have a feeling my big sisters Soul and Diva might not know either, I’ll share… lol. An MVP is hereby defined as the ‘Most Valuable Player’ on the team… chai my genius na die!)

… we went for a walk…

He’s incredibly playful… I remember he even chased after me at one point trying to grab his car keys from me. It can be a lot of fun acting incredibly childish sometimes… I don’t remember being that free with someone I just met. Achilles was singing offkey and I was rapping… silly but great times.

He kept looking at my face the entire time… I pretended I didn’t notice, but every once in a while I sneaked a glance, and liked what I saw. The facial bone structure of a Versace model, a lanky, athletic frame, oddly artistic fingers(odd because he’s a baller not a painter), legs that went on for days, a gorgeous smile… this husky Grenadian accent that sounded like a cross between a Trini and Kenyan accent… the Hotness!

He put his number in my phone and told me to call him when I got home. I knew I wouldn’t, so I gave him my number.

Achilles: I love your necklace… it suits you

Me: Thanks

Achilles: lol… trying to act all madest(lol… modest) and ting… I know you get bare compliments al de time… the man demz be on you always eh?

Me: lol… I’m not even gonna answer that

Achilles: I’m right eh… make dem no come near cos me interest

Me: … you’re a joker

Achilles: no jokes girl… so it’s cool if I call you tomorrow?

Me: sure

Achilles: I never even ask… how old are you?

Me: 21

Achilles: oh really… you look good for a 21 year old still

Me: lol… is that so? How bout you?

Achilles: 18

Me: huh?!

Achilles: 18... but I’m turning 19 in two months

Me: huh?!?!

?!?!?!?18?!?!?!?!

FUCK!!!

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

Im really laughing so hard right now, I remeber my cuz in atlanta once made a comment, that she daren't try and smile back to some guys cause you got to be carful as they may still be boys looking like men. And she was 23 when she made that statement. So overwhelmed, babies are now checking for you, don't worry, as I always say, its not you fault, you are hot.lol. Have a blessed week.

Ageism is now illegal, he can have you sued for refusing to date him. See you have to date him now or else you'll get in trouble with the law. :D

O.šeyï said...

HAHAHAHA... that is hilarious.
So what do you think about dating a guy younger... i've never been able to do it!! I have a stalker thats exactly 18 and i'm definitely more than three years older. It just feels like... i dont know... raping the cradle not even snatching.

Naija Vixen said...

Olówó said...

In theory I would say age is nothing but a number but chai! 18 going on 19? I no fit.

Anonymous said...

OWNB, you are boy crazy oh!
don't leave us hanging, tell us more

The shopaholic. said...

Hmmm. It's just that he's 18 and probably not in a mature frame of mind but girl, I will happily date a younger man o as long as he shows maturity.
Anyway, you're 21..he's 18 it will look like child abuse. Now if you're 27 and he's 24 it won't look bad at all.

Mr.Fineboy said...

Hehn? Vickii, what did u say??? 18...he won't have a clue!!! I was beefing the guy at first o...6'8..whaaat?

Ms. Confessions said...

19, damn; now what are we gonna do?

Holla in 2, at least then we can go to Vegas. That's my limit, you must be able to gamble and drink legally :)

Beautifully Human said...

lol. Trust that to happen to you OWNB!
I see I've got a LOT of catching up to do on your blog, but can I just say 'thank God your mum's ok', 'did you achieve your goal of 6 pack in 6 weeks?' and your last 2 posts left me bit confused.(I thot you had a boyfriend?)

Bluntremi said...

You shoudnt have let that one go!! He is OH SO LEGAL darling!!!

SapphireAster said...

damn...the age thing had to come up! lol. O well..you can stop being madest! Wait, how old is the Chef?
ONB,,,quit robbing the cradle o..i kid i kid lol.

In my head and around me said...

If it makes you feel better I did not know what MVP meant either.

A hunky boy toy? Oh yeah! But em 18 is really young. just 2 years older and it would be okay.

Kemi said...

lol. who is the mystery guy :-)

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

Vickii: lol… my dear he already knows that I can’t do it… perhaps if he was 20 I might’ve considered it… I mean a 3 year gap isn’t a big deal … if I was 26 and he was 23… I wouldn’t hesitate… but 18? My younger sister Fire is older than him… lol…

The Life of a Stranger Called me: lmao… this is the first time it’s happened to me oh… as in if the boy hadn’t asked me…I never would’ve asked him… at least not that day cos absolutely nothing about him suggested that he was a teenager… as in you should’ve seen the look on my face when he told me… I simply couldn’t believe it!!! I suppose you’re right… I could take it as some kinda compliment that an 18 year old thinks I’m cute… and I WILL… lol…

Bimbylads: lol… my dear ehn… no be small

Anonymous: this babe don’t even laugh at me… you’ve already given me enough grief about it on the phone… hopefully I live this one down!!!

Bhookey84: lol… are you forreal? Lmao… your comment is hilarious… I see say the thing pain you sha… I honestly have never experienced this one sha… but at least I know say no be only me this kind thing dey happen to

Porter deHarquort: lol… I’m beginning to look at it that way… after the shock wore off of course… lol

Young Miss Williams: hehe… mami I told him after that I couldn’t… it was way too young… I’m sure when I’m 24 or 27 I won’t mind… but dang… an 18 year old? Lol… that seems like ages ago… for me! Perhaps if I had been talking to him for a long while and already developed feelings for him or something… but I found out later that same day … so I wouldn’t even go there…

TaureanMinx: lol… babe say it and say it again

Geisha: E pain me no be small… as in you have no idea… I mean I have never dated someone my age… they’ve all usually been like 3-5 years older than me… and this one is 3 years YOUNGEr… how I for manage?!

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

Cinnamonqueen: hey darling… welcome to blogsville… I love you already… you write really well and I’ll definitely be checking back often to see what you’re up to… lol… boy toys when you’re like a demi… but when me I’m almost a baby… lol… what is he gonna be… my infant? Lol…

Kafo: my dear… this one baffle me sha… it’s never happened to me… the guy is obscenely tall… as in… even if you were 24 and he’d come to talk to you… you’d give him your number… he looks NOTHING like an 18 year old… and doesn’t sound it either… CRAPPERS!!! The boy fine ohhhhhh
Anonymous: lmao… so let me be the third to say… CRADLE ROBBER!!! Lol… just kidding… whatever works for you… I honestly don’t care what people would say… the thing is… I don’t want to at this age… like I said… if I was 24 and he was 21 turning 22… I’d consider it… but it wouldn’t work for me now… the sad thing is that his friend liked my sister… otherwise I’d hook em up… cos a fine boy like that deserves to be in my family… whether with me or not… lol
Set: lol… he is soooo cute girl… I swear I wish I’d taken a picture… cos that’s the kind of guy you show ur kids in the future and be like yup…. I know I look all round and motherly now… but this is the kind of guys that were chasing after me in my youth… lol…

Pink- satin: nne e get as the whole thing be sha… lol

Nosa: lmao… you’re a joker… I know that… and many other things… that’s why I told him he was a really nice guy… and if he’d been 2 years older I wouldn’t have hesitated…

Londonnaijachic: lol… no actually… a 3 year age gap… well at least for the next 2 months…

Mochafella: hehe… suga mama does have a nicer ring to it… the only problem is… suga mamas are supposed to be rich and living in luxury… and here I am struggling as a broker student…

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

My 2 cents: lol… e no help at all my dear…

Mari: I can’t date him sha… but I am definitely enjoying the attention… it’s amazing fun jare just flirting and chilling out jare… hows the Mr. and yourself? Tell my Nigerican that I miss her…

Jaja: lol… I had to tell somebody about us now… abi you want us to forever keep it a secret?

Nameless poetical: if you laugh at me… I will beat you up!!! and you know I’m capable of it…

Stranger: lol… I no participate oh

Biodun: lol… chai… the 18 flabbergast me no be small sha

Soul: lol… so in otherwords you’re basically trying to tell me that you actually knew what an MVP was ehn… and that me I can’t even claim to be the only uninformed one abi? I still hold out hope sha that diva doesn’t know… hehe… but dang I didn’t know you played sha… whatever don’t you know how to do? Make jollof?! Lol… maybe that I can teach you! The dude really is bloody tall… I have never ever seen anybody that tall up close in my life!!! I can picture him in the nba in 2-4 years no worries… he’s not 19 oh… he’s 18… lol… at least for the next 2 months… this one is not ageism oh.. this one is protecting myself from the boy who would potentially ask me to take me to an all-ages club where I will be whining on the same dancefloor as 12 and 14 year olds in bellytops and braces… and my life will go downhill from there… in the words of King sunny Ade… prevention is better than cure!

Toyintomato: lol… when you figure it out… come and gist me oh… and if I do… I will tell you… the whole thing get serious k-leg

36 inches: lol… don’t even laugh me oh… na really WTF! It’s a cruel cruel joke sha… chai!

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

Uzo: lol… yup… 18!!! This world is cruel! Lol… I didn’t oh… I spend more time listening to Amy Winehouse, reading Danielle Steele and painting my nails than I do watching basketball… I take that back… I’ve never actually really watched basketball other than the time the Jehovah Witness took me to an nba game a few months ago… he was really amused when I asked him questions about every single aspect of the game… I didn’t even know what a 3-pointer was(at least I know now… lol… that and MVP… I could write a ‘basketball book’ now… I know so much)

Femme: na really big downer… hehe… stella’s made more sense… I’m almost a baby myself… so how we for manage?

O.seyi: lmao… tell me more tell me more!!!

Naija Vixen: that’s exactly how I feel… e pain me small sha I no go lie…

AbujaBabe: lol… so you want to teach me bad thing eh this babe… hope ur back back this time around.. I’ve missed you… how are the wedding plans coming along?

Omohemi Benson: yes oh… it’s over before it even began… but kosi worries… fine boys plenty for the city…

Jadedjune: lol… this bad girl! Ngwa tell me what they say about younger guys… I want hear this one… lol

Catwalq: lol… the problem no be to find the boys oh… dem dey… na the right right ones… this one you dey advertise dating sites… them dey pay you commission abi kini? Lol… if that’s the case… then gist me… I go recruit ppl for them… make me self collect commission… I’m a business woman!

Omosewa: lol… yeah the chef might gwan still… things are still in the works… we’ll see what happens… how you doing my darling?

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

Zaiprincesa: lol… I am!!! And it’s great fun trust me… lol…. I can’t date an 18 year old sha… but no worries… the summer is bringing some nice things around my way sha… I just dey smile dey enjoy… wetin concern agboro with overload?!

Through these eyes: lol… this age ain’t nothing but a number… emm… I no know say e apply to me here oh… I no fit oh…

Omo-obanta: lol… if you dey Canada… I no mind at all… cos the boy is FINE! And that height… chai!!!

Sisinaija: lmao… leave me jo… robbing of cradles… hehe… that is one sexy-ass tall cradle if I do say so myself…

Elle: lol… I know my dear… TOOO BADDDD…

CountessC: lol… I can’t oh… chai you should’ve seen my expression when I found out… complete disbelief and shock… dude does NOT look 18 at all… I swear e pain me oh… cos he’s one of the sexiest guys I have ever met… WORD! Thanks for dropping by mami… you know I love you back right?!

Kpakpando: lol… so you want to hook me up with villagitic individuals… actually now that you mention it… there is a guy that I will talk about soon… the most IGBOTIC person I have ever come across in my lifetime!

Olowo: lol… I agree… it sounds great in theory… but me I can’t oh… I couldn’t even bring myself to ask him after if he’d graduated high school yet… lol. Me… helping my boyfriend with his grade 12 calculus homework (if that’s the case)… I no fit oh! Lol… imagine if he hasn’t graduated high school… he will now want me overwhelmed to be his prom date… chai! Chineke nna… aru!

Anonymous: … I’m so not… the boys are crazy about me… (There’s a difference)…

The shopaholic: EXACTLY!!! It does look like child abuse to me oh… as in he’d want me to use my id to buy alcohol… he might still be wearing high school uniforms… mba oh… I can’t!

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

Mr. Fineboy: lol… you’re right… he won’t have a bloody clue… and I can be a handful sometimes… underage clubs and no alcohol drinking and romantic dates to ‘a friends place’ and … in fact let me not go on jare… I can’t do it. I say ehn I no even fit ask the boy whether him don finish high school oh… lol… imagine that… me and a high school kid… life will surely go down from there… but when I think the boy fineness and height… e pain me small sha…

Ms. Confessions: lol… 18 oh! That’s what I’m saying… my age… a few months younger and I probably would’ve made an exception for this fine specimen… but him too young abeg…

Beautifully Human: lol… I swear the darndest things really do happen to me… where you been mama? Hope you’re good… mums good… the 6pack never happen… but I go yarn that one later… oh my gosh this babe you’re late oh… I’ve been single for a little while… let the games begin! Lol

Bluntremi: I had to oh… just being legal doesn’t cut it oh…

SapphireAster: lol… exactly what I thought oh… lmao@being madest… you’re a joker oh this babe. The chef just turned 23… but him self… I no know sha… we go see…

In my head and around me: lol… yay!!! At least now I don’t feel like such a girly girl… how you doing mami… its been a while… and yeah… he’s too young for me

Kemi: lol… kosi mystery mbi bai(lol… I spelt that the way I say it… feel free to correct me… lol)
