Today is a bad day for dreads.

Today, I should have acknowledged the omen of waking to find my cat sharpening its claws on my dreads.

Instead, I rose, undaunted, and went about my early morning ways.

Once I got to school, I caused my art studio teacher to laugh so hard that his orange juice came out of his nose. Unfortunately, I was right next to him, and the majority of it went into my poor dreads.

Then while I was doing my best to rinse them out in the bathroom sink, a fight broke out, and someone bumped into me rather hard, causing me to smack my face against the faucet, and yank one of my dreads in the process.

Moving on, I was pushed around by a group of four 'jocks' who kept telling me to wash and brush my hair. The only amusing thing about that situation was that after they were done having their jock-esque fun, one asked the rest of the group, "Hey, heh, did you smell oranges over there?"...They turned around to stare at me with their beady eyes when I burst into a giggling fit.

To make the day complete, while I was walking to my PC Repair class, some tar/pebble things blew off of the roof and into my hair.

The next time I wake up with Stimpy sharpening his claws on my dreads, I'm staying in bed.

sad for me, but to all the people who wonder about the permanence of dreads,

in one long evening, with enough patience, you can comb them out.
mine were 8 months, pretty mature, locked to the roots (never had the loose roots problem). bleached, dyed, fried. i didn't use conditioner precomb. so i'm pretty sure anyone who has pretty managable hair may be able to get away with it.

never thought i'd see them go, because i went into it pretty spiritually and watched; as they dreaded i found 'me' and i found beauty and i fell in love with somebody truly amazing. but, a few months ago, i dreamt i combed them out. every dream after, i had straight hair. and i think i'd really learned from them, and i need to try straight hair again.
this wasn't my first set and i'm sure it's not my last.

i'm rather shocked that my chin length hair is now shoulderblade length.

    "be our guest" is running through my head...

Happy Dread Moment of The Day

How cool is it that you can be soo exhausted riding on a bus and lean your head up on the window (or anything) and the dreads are like built in little pillows. I could fall a sleep on a rock if I pushed or folded my hair in the right directions...

Ahhhh the joy!
