YUP! I have committed to not cutting my locks until my 30th birthday/6 year anniversary. Since I was locked 2 days after my 24th birthday…they are almost the same thing. And it just sounds cute. Lol.
I really think I would be one of those people to grow their hair until they stepped on it…but I have to be realistic…there is only but so much I can get away with at a Fortune 10 company in the financial district…hair to my knees may be a little excessive. Lol. BUT…I do want to let my hair get to my lower back before I cut it…and after seeing QuietSpirit, Brenda and Leighann’s hair stories…I think it could happen in 6 years.
Mom is so not gonna be one of those people…she said shoulder length is all she is willing to put up with…silly Mommy.
So we shall see…it’ll be cute to see what all the current haters will say once I get some length…
And speaking of the haters…here is an excerpt from an email I sent my girl Stace…
Jerk 1: (ex)
“I miss you hair…I loved your hair”
“I still have hair…”
“No I miss your old hair…I liked playing with it”
“So what’s wrong with my hair now?”
“It’s not that damn short! And its healthier and softer now”
“Its not soft”
“How do you know?!? You haven’t even seen me since I cut it”
“I just miss your hair”
Right…ok…and then the subject of natural hair came up and he was like:
“yeah…I don’t really like that nappy s**t”…”
“EXCUSE ME?!? Last time I checked your a** was nappy too…”
I think I ended that convo almost immediately…
Jerk 2: (used to like me in college)
So he calls me Friday and tried to talk to me about why I cut my hair for like 15 minutes!!! Excuse me…I know my hair may be interesting…but not that damn interesting. “Yes I cut my hair…no I don’t care if you like it or not…How are you?!? Can we not talk about my hair? Thanks…”
Jerk 3: (had one great date and one alright one 2 years ago before I moved)
I told him what I did with my hair and he begged for a picture. OH! So you need a picture before you can decide whether we should go on a date again…yeah ok whatever. So I told him where to go…
Jerk 4: (kinda dated in college)
“Do you care if hair is short or not”
“Nah…as long as it looks good I don’t care”
“What about natural hair”
“Hmm….nah, I don’t get with the fruit and berries Erykah Badu s**t”
I had a synopsis of the whole felon security guard situation…but it is normal Clu-speak which isn’t really blog appropriate. I am a New Yorker you know!
