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.
