mind over matter?

I'm not really sure WHY I did it, maybe because I was in a bad mood, maybe its because EVERY SINGLE NIGHT for the past week I've had dreams of me and hair (do not want! love the dreads! wtf?) or maybe because I could call it a "social experiment", but I did something silly.

I changed my profile picture on facebook to one of me taken this month last year, one showcasing my old curly hair. Its a very nice picture, actually. My hair looks gorgeous in it. Definitely not like I just took out 7 month dreads.

I changed my facebook status to "Jaimee took out her dreads, happy now?"


and I sat back and watched.

within half an hour, I had gotten 3 phone calls, 3 texts, and countless wall posts and  messages. Some sad, some in disbelief, some curious about how it was done.

Some, on the other hand: "Oh thank god you're done with that phase. love this hair lots more, you look way more sophisticated!"

"thank god the nightmare is over! what were you thinking?"

"I like this style way better, don't you ever do something stupid like this again!" (I emailed back and said I had just shaved it into a mohawk, I haven't heard a reply.


BUT. For the most part, the pseudo-death of my dreads were mourned by my friends.(most of the not so good messages came from family, so not so much in that department.)




I feel glad.
