i <3 derby

I can't believe this actually happened.

My dreads are at four months, and they're locking up very nicely and are proving themselves to be awesome super fatties... But still.

I was in the mall yesterday, standing and staring at the directory and sipping my boba slushie(I'm addicted to those) when I heard one of those loud cameraphone noises go off directly behind my head. I turned around and there was this like.. mall-goth anime girl with cat ears on holding her phone up pointed at me like a foot away from my head. I just kinda stared at her then went "Uh.. did.. you just take a picture of me?" and she goes "Yeah, sorry I just never saw anyone..like.. you.. with dreadlocks before. They look weird." I just kinda turned around and walked away. The messed up part is that afterwards I felt embarassed. Totally messed up my relaxing mall time. :[

Anyone ever taken pictures of you or your dreads without even asking?

Alright, everyone's sharing their stories, so here's mine.

My boss has a 10 year old daughter, and I've met her 2 or 3 times. She always kind of said hi and then shied away. Whatever, no biggie. Today my boss tells me that last night her daughter says, "mom, how do you start dreadlocks?" So my boss told her what she knows from me, and then asks, "why? do you think they're cool?" and the kid says, "yeah." And that's the end of the conversation.

This morning she comes downstairs all dressed and ready for school and had taken a chunk of hair and tried to backcomb it and make a dread in the front of her head. Awww. I guess she's secretly fascinated with me, haha.
