Has having dreads changed your life too?
Life Issues Facing Dreads
So I have to tell you about something that happened to me the other day, i thought was kind of humorous... I'm walking through the store, this young guy comes right up in my face and says, " i love your dreads"! Then he just stood there, staring at me for what seemed like 30 mins!!! I'm not sure what he expected as a response from me, but all I could seem to say was "thanks", and I moved very slowly out the opposite side of our isle.... I find peoples response to my hair pretty amusing, most of the time, but some times, it can be a bit WEIRD! I too love my dreads, and seriously, I can't even picture myself without them anymore! I love the free and easy life they allow me, I love being able to just get up and go!!!And you know, I love letting people expect a little less from me, then they are always amazed by anything half assed intelligent I have to say!LOLsoaringeagle said:

i think i surprise ppl when i can have a conversation without drifyting off into mysticismjustn said:
i agree with all, and i might add that
a) i can now easily get away with never wearing deodorant [unnatural, unnecessary, and b.o. is ironically supposed to be one hell of an aphrodisiac.. imagine that]. people just expect it, they expect me to be some crazy hippie who wouldnt deodorize; i guess i kinda am :D i mean i could drop acid before grocery shopping and my state of mind would most likely not surprise very many. but of course i'd never go grocery shopping on lsd, yikes. baha
b) the level of expectation i have from strangers, employers, sometimes even friends, and sometimes even FAMILY has definitely dropped due to the raaaaadical dreadlock hairstyle. this has actually worked to my advantage - i walk into an interview and initially the employer thinks 'uh oh.. he's either nuts or incompetent.' so long as i can prove myself to be a decently intelligent individual they're immediately impressed, i've already exceeded their expectations!
i love my dreads. always did. once and awhile i have dreams of them being cut off.. i always wake up panting with my hands on my head, followed by a sigh of relief when i find they're still up there.
