What kinda weave you got in your hair?

Yep, I was just asked this question yesterday. I could do nothing but smile and politely say, "This is my hair." This lady was very complimentary before she asked this unbelievable question. "Yo, hair is so pretty. I like that. What kinda weave you got in your hair?" She also asked what did I put in my hair and I explained nothing and that I was in the process of locking my hair by the method of Sisterlocks. She responded, "Oh, it is so pretty." So I couldn't get indignant due to ignorance. Here in Montgomery, having a weave is the in thing, unfortunately they are usually the kitchen beauticians doing them so there is a lot of visible glue and tracks. I hate to see them tracks.

I get my hair retightened on Thursday, thank goodness because my hair is so thick at the roots. Plus, with my book club's literary event Saturday, my hair cannot look like a mini afro. Really, it doesn't look like that, but some days it is big. Really. Seriously.

While I am mentioning my event, I cannot wait until it is over. I am ready for my life to get back to some sense of normalcy.

Do you all realize Thanksgiving is two weeks from Thursday? Time is going by fast and I need to relax and enjoy it. Soon. Seriously. Really.

I am looking forward to the holidays so I can practice my culinary skills and spend time with my family. Oh, let's not forget the day after Thanksgiving shopping frenzy. Yep, I love to get out in that maddness and I am usually home by noon and back in my bed sleeping. Seriously. Really. I don't know why I do this, but I just like the idea of getting a bargain even though I cannot and I mean I absolutely abhor random people touching me. I cannot tell my tolerance level and when it is time to go. I get mean and ugly when folks keep touching me and I start snapping when it is getting late into the morning. Before I step out at 4:45 am, I have a list, my coupons and sales paper and in order of which stores to hit up first and so forth. I am no joke. This year my sister will be with me and the two of us together (looking a hot mess. Can't be cute when you shopping like this). You just roll out of bed into your sweats, wash the face and brush the teeth and a little deodorant and out the door.) Should be a blast this year.

Anyway, I am rambling but I did want to share with you about my encounter yesterday. Weave indeed!

I was asked that question before and thought it would be interesting for someone to want a weave of locks... This was also at the beginning of my locking process when they appeared a bit like mini braids.

Let us know how the literary book event goes.

I tried Blackout Friday with my mom years ago and decided I could never do it again. People lined up in front of stores hours before it's open or people fighting over items. Good Luck!!

LOL, about the lady asking what kind of weave you have. If I had a dollar for everytime, I've been something ignorant about my hair, it's be a very wealthy women. And unfortunately, most of these come from us rather than the Caucasian persuation as would be expected.

Also, I'm glad to see someone taking advantage of the holiday sales. My answer to anyone who dares to call me about even the prospect of my fighting crowds at some UNGODLY hour is "I wish a sista would..." LOL.

Nevertheless,I look forward to hearing all about your escapades, because there's bound to be some humor there. (Have you even seen any fights break out over the last $.99 flat screen TV at Walmart at 3AM?)

I've been asked that question {weave} both while locked and during my perm days...

I'm proud to say I have worn "tracks"...

Take care~
