Goes well with chocolate & peanut butter.

I went shopping today for groceries at the small local discount grocery store in town. Up here in small town Vermont, everyone knows everyone else. I used to own a catering business for 7 years, so I'm well known in town. I've had my dreads in for almost 17 months now. You'd think people would be used to them by now.

Apparently not. One of the women that works at the store walked by me and said, "Hey, next time, why don't you try shaving your head if you want to go extreme."

Huh??? I thought dreads were pretty natural, not extreme.

You'd think in northern VT, she'd be used to seeing them. Or maybe it's that she doesn't know any other people with dreads that she would feel at liberty to say some so asshat-ish.

Guess it takes all kinds.
