    "I don't wanna be here all **** day"...
    I say to myself as though I'm in prayer
    take a seat
    look around
    seeing my sistahs
    and ~~a few brothas
    that came here from all over town
    On a Friday, mid morning
    in the month of July
    gettin' ready for the weekend
    that should be of no suprise
    parties, ques, celebrations
    and Sunday church services awaits~
    but I won't be partaking
    in any of that until
    my stylist sets my hair up
    straight ...
    Can't go nowhere with
    a busted up wig
    so I'll sit here lookin'
    at the Ebony and Jet Magz
    until it's my turn
    to get under the bowl;
    then wrapped and tapped
    full of dark and lovely soul...
    sit 35 underneath the dryer
    my patience is wearing
    hot as hell in here
    and my ears are on FIRE
    **** ... **** ... **** ...
    all the stylists seem to do
    is stand around talkin' about
    some other shorty's Boo,
    or eatin' take out that some
    body brought for them - so they
    could get the hook up...and get
    squeazed right in ~
    ringin' phones,
    answered from the watch tower
    someone calls in ~ every 10
    like they're workin' unknowningly
    for tele-market-tin'
    But I ain't mad
    just gon'
    keeps my cool
    next to be gettin' fixed up
    right and tight, too
    ....**** **** ****....
    another walk-in ~~~ man!
    so I sit my
    frustrated assed frustration
    down
    -- sit still --
    and bare it
    with an adjusted grin
    ~it's my prayer time again~
    hopin' the sista who just
    came through
    don't ask for
    no complicated
    styling concoction; or
    a whole head of weave
    cause damnit I've been
    here for 3 1/2 hours
    no disrespect intended
    bu I'm ready....been ready... oh so ready
    ...to leave...

    Even though you may not be
    able to relate now (being that
    you've gone au' natural) it
    sounded as though you could
    at least relate enough to
    repsond to the piece!
    Glad you liked! Thanks sistah.

    N2urSoul!!!!

    i love it!

    while i hate to sit and wait
    Ms. Dorothy Moore is never late
    if anything it's me who's dragg'n
    but that's okay cause she be having
    everything in complete control
    massaging my scalp as stories are told
    yep ... i feel you on this one
    but with Ms. Moore you're in and done!

    Love You Ms. Moore!!!

    hehehe

    You know I'm glad you get the hook up!
    My stylist hooks me up also, but I have
    gone through this experience with other
    beauticians before I found my present
    stylist! Thanks!
