It is apparent that you have to go to Jamaica or Mexico to braid your hair like this.
It is funny how people react to me braiding my hair as if my skin were another color. Here are some responses I've had:
"I hate corn rows, but you are still so pretty." Bubby
"When are you leaving for vacation?" Strangers
"Gosh, YOU look good in corn rows. I wish I could braid my hair and not look like a freak." A Narcissistic Neighbor
"Who did your hair? It's FABULOUS! Oh My! Your scalp is burning! Ok. Here's what you do.....pour a bunch of Aloe on your scalp and then wash it gently in the shower. That should heal your tender scalp." Man who is obviously gay but currently in a heterosexual marriage
It's fun being different Way Down In Mayberry. People are always trying to fit in, keep up with the Jones's and not look out of place. The way you fit in here is by getting a boob job, enrolling your children in every possible expensive summer camp, having an Nanny, personal trainer and home tanning bed.
I guess I'm sticking with the "Way Down In Mayberry-freak" status.
