First Blaq Siting

My youngest son and his date joined me for dinner and live jazz this Saturday. We had a blast.

As I lead up to next Sunday and my two year loc'versary, it seems befitting that I experienced my first BlaqKofi siting.

As we waited at the bar, a lady sportin' some of the cutest Sisterlocks approached me and said, "you're that lady from the web aren't you - you're BlaqKofi."






It took me a moment to realize that she was actually talking to me. She was so enthusiastic and excited. I'm thinking - she must have me confused with someone that she knows. Afterall, I don't get out that often. But as it turned out, Ms. P is a steady visitor to Natural Awakenings and says she recognized KD and me right away. It was almost surreal.

We laughed and embraced, introduced ourselves and then of course began examing each other's locs. Ms. P's locks are very soft and she was sporting a cute Soft Spike curl set. She got a lot of pleasure introducing me to her co-workers so that they could see mature Sisterlocks and "what she had been trying to explain." I know the challenge of trying to describe the beauty of Sisterlocks to those unfamiliar with them.

Ironically, I learned that Ms. P emailed me for advice when contemplating locking. She's now nine months on loc'down and chose Gigi as her consultant. She obviously made a great decision because her locks were just too cute.


Meeting another locked sister in my home town and experiencing that special unspoken bond we all share, was a meaningful start to my two year loc'versary celebration. Thanks for visiting my site, Ms. P and for showing a sister the love on Saturday night.

(Hairstyle: 2-3 day old braid out. I began the evening
with my hair up and later took it down.)

You are a sisterlock dreamgirl! It must have been great to meet someone and see how much they were influenced by your hair and spirit. She even went to Gigi...that tells you how beautiful your locks are.

You too favor at lot. Her locks look great. I haven't been recgonized from the blogging, but I did run into a lady that goes to my consultant. She said, "Are you the one that took 25 hours and fell asleep on the eyebrow recliner?" And for some odd reason, I answered proudly, "Yes that's me!"
