What If: You Were Caught Out Wearing Granny Plaits?

Thursday, January 13, 2011

New York Just got hit by a snow storm

So I have resorted to wearing

(or something like it)

If I venture out…

As a result, I dont bother to unplait my hair which is currently in big ones.

But, I have this reoccuring fear that my hat will fly off

 or I’ll enter a building that has a no hat rule

I think I would ask to go to the bathroom so I could do a hasty afro. I would be soooooooo embarassed to be caught in public with my granny plaits. This makes me want to resolve to wear a wig cap or to just style a low ponytail or something, but, I know I won’t.

I am just too lazy.

What would you do if you were caught out wearing granny plaits?

    We say wear them proudly – there is a lot of history in those granny plaits!

    Haha. Were snowed in down here in Atlanta(not really, but it’s the South and we go crazy over ice and snow) and I have been wearing hats out to cover my “plaits” because I don’t want to bother wasting time taking my hair down when it’s not needed. But when I do go out I always wonder what would happen if the hat somehow lost itself from my head! what would I do? probably act like nothing ever happened and tastefully position it back on my head and walk away as fast as I can! lol
