Unbeweavable!

I got my hair done! 18 inches baby! I look like a video h---ok enough of that…but my new hair is bangin' and attracting attention. No not THAT kind of attention, THIS kind of attention…

As I was leaving the hair salon, three older ladies who were on their way to purchase some hair bombarded me. They stopped me on my way to my car to hold a press conference about my hair.

“Where did you get it from?” “Who did it?” How long did it take?”

“Ladies, ladies, ladies, please I will have time for questions later,” I said, as I flung my hair over my shoulder like I was in a Pantene Pro-v commercial.

I led them into the hair shop, next door to the salon, to point out the kind of hair I was sporting. One of the ladies began gushing again, “Honey your hair is so beautiful, now you got to go and get yourself a boyfriend.”

Excuse me? I was not wearing my, “I don’t have a boyfriend T-shirt?” How did she know I was single?

“That is if you are single,” she added.

Before I could respond, one of the other ladies chimed in, “oh no, forget a boyfriend just get married. You don’t need a boyfriend, she said shaking her head, you need a marriage.”

Ok I did not get my hair did with aspirations of getting married and having babies. And in order to get married don’t you have to get a boyfriend first? I thought the days of arranged marriages were over? Actually at this rate I would take that arranged marriage, but I’d have to be getting something out of the deal besides babies.

Back in the hair shop, twenty minutes later, after explaining the process of how-to-have-Puddin’-hair to the trio, I finally escaped to my car.

From now on I’m sticking to bars. Sports bars. And wherever else hair talk doesn’t turn into marriage…

Such a difference between men and women -- in that when a guy gets a haircut or style, the reaction he normally gets from his friends is:

"Dude what the hell happened to you?"

Congrats on the new doo.

Muze said...

MsPuddin said...

bella- thanks bella! See I got to pay for what you have naturally, such a shame…

hex- thanks man. Yeah and guys never seem to notice a woman’s new do, unless of course she shaves her head…lol

onthevirg- man you would turn a discussion about hair into a discussion about your penis. Men. It’s either marriage or penis talk…I just can’t win

still_p- ooo- that sounds interesting, I will have to check it out…thanks…

smitty- ha ha yup and African lol I would wear my natural hair, but I’m technically bald…

muze- I love your natural hair. When you have hair like that you don’t need a weave. I, on the other hand, NEED some extra help lol

G-Sweet said...

lmfao @ "technically bald""... crackin up... yea right.

country roads said...

Obviously, they put the get married weave in instead of the pick up hot guys for meaningless fun weave. You should get a refund ;-)

and, I can't believe you didn't show us?!

Missy Elliott's Let Me Fix My Weave is one of my anthems. I hope you've heard it. Here's just a few of my favorite lyrics:

Baby you could call me
If you go down on me
But you got to back up off me
Wearing cubic zirconi


I suggest you walk around CA spittin' those rhymes.

UBERMOUTH said...

18 inches of hair would make me feel like Rapunzul. Or at least like Tyra. Either way it would be fun. Enjoy it!
