My first conversation with a random dreadhead...

So, I see people with dreads every once in a while. But they're always on the other side of the street, or already engaged in conversation, or reading, or something. I'm not the type of person who just walks up and starts a conversation, but today gave me the perfect opportunity.

I went to a used book store to trade in some old literature, and the black girl working the trade-in counter had gorgeous long dreads. I said "Do you mind if I ask how old your dreads are? They're so beautiful.." She said they were eight years old, and asked how old mine are. I said about nine months, and she said that they look very nice for being that young. She was so sweet, we chatted for a minute more then I cleared out to make room for other customers. The experience left me with a huge smile.

I love having dreads! ^_^
