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!
