4 steps away from her, Pastor Julio reached out to me. “Oh no! your Mama din’t tell me you had cancer! I’ll pray for you!”
Then the red-headed Miss Betty came ALL the way across the room to scold me. “Why’d you do that to your HAIR??” At least she didn’t ask if I had cancer!
Since I knew it was gonna happen, I wanted to have some sarcastic zingers all ready to go. But, how can you be sarcastic to precious ladies who are really concerned about you???? Ya can’t. So, I just told them the truth. “It was so long, it bothered me!” Leaving out the “I-had-a-wild-hair-and-now-it’s-gone” part.
