(This showed up on my timeline on FB when I was recovering from surgery)I had two friends that didn’t asked me if they could come over today. They just called and said they were on their way over! The nerves of some people. I spruced up for them by putting on my new pretty pjs. (You know the ones that your mom told you to keep for if you have to go to the hospital) I looked at my hair and thought I need a week to get it together so it is what it is. I put on a scarf. During our visit my scarf came off my head and I saw the look on one of their face like the scene in the movie Color Purple when Sug Avery first laid eyes on Miss Celie ” you’s sho is ugly”. Later on, I was starting to get hungry so I had one of my friends season my meat for me. She used more spices than the Colonel Sanders for his fried chicken. She was looking for every spice under the sun. Some of them I had and some of them I never even tried before. That meat was smelling delicious. When it was time to leave my friend since 1983 asked who tired to braid your hair? I said me. She said I should whip my own butt for not braiding your hair while I was here. We all laughed. When Mr came home I said could you tell them my hair is much better than it was. He said oh yeah much better. I thought I was going to have to cut it and start a new head of hair.
With old friendships you don’t have to put on your mask of perfection, no worries if your house isn’t perfect, the kids are crazy, and the dog have an attitude and I can’t mention the man that was running out the door that was thankful to get a break from me. They don’t care what you look like and they always have your back! And they cook too!!! Love you ladies.
