Confession of a white girl

Ok, this lil' confession started out as a comment I left on Luvvie's blog, Awesomely Luvvie.  Now, I know I'm lettin' myself in for a whole mess of ignance and tongue lashing (or keyboard lashing, as may be more accurate).  But as common wisdom holds, confession is good for the soul.

*Deep cleansing breath*


I used to be "one of those white girls." You know what I mean.  The ones who try too hard.  Now, I was never on the level of Becky "Buckwild" here.  But there was a period of time, in much younger days, when I didn't really know who I was, and I did some things that now make me wanna hang my head!  I guess I thought that I was being cool or something.... but dammit, it was just wrong.  

The level of wrongness is thus:  I had braids... with weave.  


Yes, I did it. It was wrong, and I know this now, but then....  Well, hell, then I thought that was the shit!  I don't know what possessed me.  But I sat in the floor for, oh, bout 12 hours at a time  on more than one occasion while my friend Carlette tortured my head, smoked, talked on the phone, disciplined her children and watched her "stories" simultaneously.  Not to mention that throughout said activities, she provided a steady stream of commentary on who was messing with whom, who's children were out of pocket, who's baby daddy got locked up and what she was wearing to the club Saturday Night.  

Now, to be sure, I have grown up since then.  I understand that I don't hafta try to be anyone other than who I am.  In my own defense, tho, I really did think that shyt was cute at the time.  And any time spent with Carlette was entertaining and enlightening, to say the least!

This post has the potential to morph into a whole debate on the rights and wrongs of interracial relationships and friendships.  Everybody feels some kinda way about it.  But I think I'll just stop the seriousness of things right here for now and just let my folly stand on it's own.  Yes, my eFriends, I rocked a hairhat. 

Ok, I'm prepared for the roasting that I deserve!  Be gentle with me!

I won't roast you for donning those hideous braids. Like you said, you didn't know who you were back then. I did a bunch of stuff back in my younger days in my efforts to "find myself", wearing skimpy clothing being the most hideous of all. I'm all growed up now, so I know that those things aren't what make me cool. Just being me is awesome! :)

Luvvie--dang...that's like when my mom used to say "I'm not angry, Amy. I'm just so disappointed...."

PBG--I was hoping you'd understand and forgive!

Yeah we all go thru the awkward stage, like before I discovered tweezers. My eyebrows were like 2 black centipedes just chilling. Thank God I found some sense!

Your hairhat trangression aside, we still heart you. Just dont do it again. EVER!

Luvvie--Thank you! I heart you all, too!
I solemnly swear on all of my Little Brother, Foreign Exchange and Erykah Badu CD's, I will never ever commit the transgression of hairhattery again!

Ahhh, eff Blogger! This is my third time tryna comment.

You're right about the potential to roast...but since I rocked overalls, a mushroom haircut, and KSwiss once upon a time (and usually on the same day), I can't judge you. I just can't. I can, however, ask for pics. Please let there be pics.

And Luvvie wasn't lying about her eyebrows in high school - they were a web of confusion and angst.
