Something to be said about brand new underwear

My mom, being my mother, sent a care package which included new panties for Pooka and I. YAY! I was thinking the other day that it was time to get more. Wearing new underwear is like rocking a fresh hairstyle/hair cut right out the shop to me! LOL Just thought I'd share.

I am addicted to Wii boxing! I've had the system for awhile now and yesterday I finally played the boxing part. WOW! Me likey! You will definitely break a sweat, not like it's hard for me anyway, but still you will get a workout! At the moment I am 3-0 and of course I am going to play tonight and see how far I can go without losing. Knowing my luck I may lose my next fight! LOL!

Same ole stuff at work and today is my final for Summer session one. I will probably get a B in the course by looking at the numbers. I am okay with that.

I went to the pool the other day to hang out and watch Pooka do her thing and a single dad (his wife died, so sad) to a young man and young woman came to talk to me and the other parents at the table. As he was walking away one of the parents said something about me braiding their child's hair and he stopped turned around and was like...

"Who do hair?"

Me: "I do"

Him: "How much you charge?"

Me: *stuck cuz I never charge so I don't even know what's a fair rate* "Ummmm I dunno, whatever you give me I guess"

Him: "How old are you?"

Me: "28" (technically 27 but the b-day is next month so whatever, LOL)

Him: *sucks teeth sound* "Shit, you a grown ass woman. I thought you was in high school."

Me: *laughing and prepping my locks* "thank you thank you thank you I appreciate that!"

The parents and I start talking about little things we did as teens to make a little change (mow lawns, babysit, pet watched, etc...) and dude basically said that it wouldn't be no need to do his daughter hair today anyways cuz he was planning to bring them back to the pool later that day anyways.

I tell this story for 2 reasons....

1) is this a possible 2nd side hustle appearing before my eyes?

and 2) High school? Really? I know black woman tend to look younger than they are but High school? Teenager? Word? Seriously? Can I at least pass for early twenties? I'm just saying! It took me back to a few years ago when I got carded at Walmart for buying the Exorcist! I keep telling that story because I think I am the only person who's been carded at WALMART for buying a MOVIE!!!! This stuff is fun-ny to me!

That is funny...being carded for a movie!!!! Girl I feel you on the new undie thing. Ain't nothing wrong with a side hustle.

Ladynay said...

Yeah, that was about 3 years or so ago if I recall correctly!

Side hustle is one of my key words right about now. :-)

You know I'm 22 and the other day, a friend asked me to pick them up a beer. I usually don't do thingslike, that but I did it anyway. Well when I go tto the counter I was searching for my license, and the guy went ahead anf rung me up. When I laid my license down he told me he didn't need it. I went ahead and gave him the money. Jokingly though I mentioned, "You don't need my license, what do I look older than 21?" He says yeah. A little surprised, I said I do. He said at least 27 or 28! He was dead serious too. I felt like I had just been dropped kicked in the stomach. I kept thining, if I look five or six years older now, what will I look like when I five or six years older.

The thing is, like a few weeks ago, I ran into someone from high school, and I thought to myself, damn they look old, the last few years since school ended, must have been some rough ones. I mean they looked 10 years older.
Karma is a bitch, ain't it!

There is nothing like new draws. New draws and new socks too. I mad that your moma is sending you new draws in a care package. You not overseas in the military or anything.

I can just see her now, "I got to send both my babies some new panties! I bet their old ones are just as raggedy as can be!"

Kat said...

Okay....isn't Wii Sports just the BEST game ever! HAHAHAHA Do you have any others? I think I REALLY like tennis and Bowling the most!

HECK YEAH you should start braiding hair out that way!! AND CHARGE for it! hahahah You dont have to break a persons pockets for it....but they should pay you for the service! :D

Freaky Deaky said...

That Wii boxing is no joke. I'm 5-0 with 5 KOs all in the first round. I like talking smack and telling the Wii boxer when I'm going to knock him out.

You sure dude wasn't trying to sniff around? I mean I compliment chicks all the time when I'm trying to get up in their tummies. You look nice today. Those thongs make your booty look at least 37.2% bigger. :oD What?! I'm just saying dudes are horny and sneaky.

I got carded for a CD when I was in my 20s. In a way I miss those days and in a way that was annoying as hell.

How much you charge to braid up armpits? Can you hook me up with a rat tail too? I'm bringing it back. LOL

Anonymous said...

Make that your side hustle. I wish I knew how to braid. I'll be braiding boys and grown azz men (who need to let the braids go) hair too.

Hi. I am a lurker. My name is Stephanie. I have been reading for quite some time and I dont think I have ever commented. I had to laugh when I read this post because I got carded in Walmart trying to buy a movie as well! LOL!

Ladynay said...

YB&DL lets hope you pick an age you like and look that age forever! :-)

See don't be talking bout folks! hahaha

Care packages are GREAT I haven't had to buy stuff like toothpaste or bar soap in FOREVER! LOL!

Kat, it is! It's the only game that I have but one day I will venture out and get the game where it has pool on it. Don't recall the name of it right now.

I need to figure out what a good price is so the next time a non friend asks me I have some rates :-)

FD, amen, it's no joke! If I get techy and find out a way to hook my Wii up to the internet, can I fight you? That would be COOL!

I didn't get the vibe that dude was trying to get close to me.

Never got carded for music.

I cut rat tails so you may not wanna deal with me! *wink*

Southern, you have a litte boy you don't have to deal with doing much hair (insert jealousy here) and I am with you. Grown men need to let braids go! I saw a dude the other day with salt and pepper braids. It looked so wrong!

I HAVE A LURKER! That's kinda cool! Howdy Stephanie! You are the first person to say me too after I told that story and I've told it many times! Now I don't feel alone! :-) Now that I know you're here, say something. Most that comment here don't bite....hard :-D

Monique said...

Good luck on the final today!

I get that "are you in high school" question a lot. My father teaches at a high school I actually got stopped and almost sent to ISS because I was walking the hall to his office. After I explained to the idiot that was 27, my father's daughter and grown woman with a masters degree, he was speechless.

Black don't crack! Take it as a compliment.

Ladynay said...

HAHAHAHAHA That's funny you was bout to get in trouble for being in the hallway without a pass! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA memories!

They do say black don't crack don't they :-)

Freaky Deaky said...

*GASP* How dare you clip those poor rat tails! I was thinking of having three of them to triple the hotness. Yeah, get at me with a price for the pit hair. I got you.

I don't think Wii Sports have an online component. If they did I'd fight you and blog about knocking you out. :oD

If black doesn't crack please explain:
1. Flavor Flav
2. Flavor Flav's mama
3. T-Pain
4. Michael Jackson
5. Assorted human/monkey hybrids.

Thanks. LOL

I think the game with pool is Wii PLAY. We have that one and it's pretty good to! It has lots of games on it like the sports cd.

Shooting Range, Find Mii, Table Tennis, Pose Mii, Laser Hockey, Fishing, Billiards, Charge!, and Tanks!

I'm STILL tellin ya....GET THE MARIO OLYMPICS!!! It's SOOOO fun!

As for you chargin for braiding.....I'd charge $20 for a basic do. If they want you to get fancy....i'd go up to $50-$60. You wouldnt want to charge TOO much since it's just a side hustle.....but you should still make some decent dough for your time.

Ladynay said...

Ummmmm you needz to go to Shanwashnita's down the skreet cuz Ion't do pits! LOL

Well flav don't look 60, he's just unattractive...never seen his momma, how old is T-Pain?...mike's been worked on a few times

Kat, YEAH that's it! Imma get that game one of these days!

The olympic Mario joint too.

I guess 20 bucks is okay. The few people I asked said 20 is ight.

It's always nice to stop by your blog, Ladynay
The last time I got carded was when I was over thirty trying to get into a cinema showing a heavy-duty Japanese movie, Empire of the Senses.

It's a flattering feeling. Now I guess I'd be carded for being over thirty.

AR Gal said...

Girl you right, I don't think I've ever heard of anyone being carded @ Wal-Mart for a movie. All the fun stuff always happens to everyone else. lol

You keep talkin about that Wii and I'm gonna have to go get one.
