Locked by V!

It was good seeing my loc buddy today! He told me about Veronica before I even met her.  She was just a word in the wind. Now I am one of her customers. One thing he said about V that I haven’t seen yet was her wine and cheese Fridays! I need to move my appointments over a day so I can start reaping some the rewards for being locked by V! Lol!

A Cotton Picking Wife

Where did this lint come from! Yesterday I was walking around feeling all proud and great about my freshness date: 03/01/12 only for my friend to look at my hair with the eyes of a microscope and say, “…you got some lint in your dreads.” I was ready to go code red and blow up the lint monster who attacked me!” When I back tracked in my thoughts I found a do rag and pillow as evidence of foul play. But how? I have used the same methods since Loc Date: 10/12/11. When I inspected my ‘do’ rag I found that it was worn with some lint buds inside of it. The pillow was found guilty because it wasn’t a silk pillowcase. The sad part about that is that I have one and I am not using it! So that’s when having a cotton picking wife comes in handy and oh! some tweezers! Thanks babe you were probably a great cotton picker in your former life! Lol!

V and I

So V told me that I should start coming every three weeks now. I said,” …but I like the breast milk!” We laughed. The truth of the matter is that I am moving into the next phase. My hair is locking really well. So there is no need for me to make those bi-weekly visits as I had grown accustom to. Admittedly I was considering going monthly because my hair had seemed to be holding so well. So when she nudged me to move closer to the edge of the nest I knew she was ‘symbolically’ saying you are growing nicely in this journey and that it is time to take some bigger steps. So whether I knew that I was moving closer to maturation or not is irrelevant.!I like the warmth and comfort of home and the breast milk ain’t bad either!

So We Hanging…

I have never had any hair touching my ears…but these are different days. I am getting an earful! Admittedly I have never been one to want long hair. And yet somewhere in my psyche I had to know that this is what comes with dreads. I am just wrapping my head around the whole idea. Natro’ is fulfilling his destiny! lol! As for the long hair thing I am dealing with…I am going to rock it with style when the time comes. As for right now I am just admiring the progress my dreads have made since mid-October!
