got a light?

saturday, cc and i went to Chicago Rocks, a hip hop showcase of home-grown mcs, (and talent that claims roots in Chicago). I was already in the mood to see some good stuff because i had gone to see cc and her crew dance at a performance earlier that day. Some of the noteables at the second day of the fest were Rhymefest, Naledge, Juice and the one everyone has been buzzing about, Lupe Fiasco (who wasn't on for very long).

there was breaking, paintings and a lot of love for the city--people hollered out for all sides but east, and threw up hands with fingers curled in a 'C.' it was a pretty good show. the only damper, however, was this annoying broad standing directly in front of me. she had long hair pulled into a low ponytail. now, i'm all for low-maintenance hair, but DAMN, if your hair is so dry and prickly that it sticks out farther sideways than longways, you are in need of product! this pissed me off because a) i couldn't see around her lightbrown puffball b) i couldn't move any closer for fear of being scratched c) she pounded about 5 beers and was dancing all offbeat and crazy, so i couldn't concentrate on what i paid to see because i was bobbing and weaving trying to avoid being stabbed.

i don't smoke and this may sound nasty, but that's an instance where i wished lighting up was still allowed inside. one errant glowing red tip and that puffyass bouncing bird's nest would have gone up like a stack of matches.

It sounds like you had fun. And I particularly love the explosive hair vision that is running through my mind. Classic.

Addendum to previous note to self: Seriously, don't piss off Cadiz.

OMG, you are hilarious! I love innocent Cadiz's not-so-secret alter ego. You are an inspiration to inner beeyathches everywhere.

I'm going to keep my hair nice and short... why temp fate?

Ha!

You know, even if you could smoke indoors, I'm pretty sure lighting people's hair on fire would still be illegal ;)

no no no, i would NEVER actually light someone's hair on fire. and i don't smoke so it wouldn't be an "accident" either, but i'm just saying, if it were to happen, it'd be a righteous kind of karma in my opinion. i don't think i fully described her -- think "before" hair on those shampoo commercials, but light brown with razor-sharp edges. i thought i was going to lose BLOOD people!

haha cc i like that 'inner beyoatch" -- there is an italian song that says we are all "bastardi dentro" bastards inside...!

I've met fellow puffballs. its really none of my business what they do to their hair, but I always get the urge to introduce them to a comb, a razor and now thanks to your suggestion, a box of matches.
