The Question Club
When I was a little kid, I had very long, thick, wavy dark hair. Whenever my mom and I would go places, people would walk up to us and comment on how "gorgeous" my hair was. Some people would even pet/caress my hair. It creeped me out, especially when I was really little.|
A friend of mine experiences the same thing -- her hair is not only long, thick and wavy, but it's this absolutely mesmerizing shade of red. You know, that classic "coppertop" colour that everyone who wants to be a redhead aspires to. We went out for her birthday a few weeks ago, and when we were leaving the restaurant, this middle-aged woman reached out and took my friend's hair in both her hands, asking if it was "real."
Honest to God. I know it was creepy enough when I was a kid, but I cannot even imagine how it would be if someone did that to me now.
So, TQCers -- have you ever had this, or anything similar, happen to you?
