asked her a few questions very straight forward and everyting.
she was working delivering coffee, i wasn't looking at first but i noticed the knots tied up on the back of her head. she seemed loose enough so i fired away as she was getting ready to scoot out the door.
me: "hey, how long you had your dreads?"
emily: "umm, about two years"
me: "why did you grow them?"
emily: "i had a few friends who had some and i was attracted to their energy and aura. people with dreads seem to have this light about them."
me: "did growing them change you any?"
emily: "i'm still the same person but i've become more natural in how i deal with myself and life."
me: "what else changed, did you become more patient?"
emily: she smiled and thought for a minute, "yes i have, it took so long to get them to lock together. yea that and things roll off of me faster. i'm more laid back."
i took my hat off and let mine fall down. her eyes lit up and she gave me much praises. she introduced herself and we parted company.
she had pretty eyes too.
