Perks

Sometimes at the end of a gig, I walk away with a perk or two. Often, I take home some snacks, a few beverages, a candle from Pier 1, or some gadget from Bed, Bath and Beyond that I end up giving to someone before I even make it home. Then something special happened.

It was the end of a long day. I wanted to get home to Shelli. Then I saw him/it. And right there … behind the batman statue … was Ricky’s NYC (if you don’t know about it click the link!).

Initially, all I thought about was taking the picture of Batman. So, what you don’t see is the young lady handing out promo stuff.

I told her my wife had a blog and asked if she had any products for a curly girl. And then boom … I walk away with a bag of goodies! Some Miss Jessie’s, some Keratin stuff, some Mixed Chicks stuff, and a bunch of stuff I had no idea what it was … Win!

On the way home, I realized Shelli doesn’t need any of this! I would just be enabling the product junkie in her. So, last weekend, I gave the bag to  Corey, one of my homies from FC Harlem. Why am I giving her products to someone else? They doen’t even know each other?

Well, actually … Corey has heard me talk about Shelli for some time. Then, he finally looks at my Facebook page and sees a picture of us. He says, “Yo, does your wife have a natural hair blog? I think I follow her.” We laughed about it for a heartbeat, but then he started to ask me a bunch of questions about products for his hair. I told him to check out the site and that everyone’s hair is different. So, that’s why I gave the bag to him!

 See, we threw in a few full-size products from our stash too!

And, he’s gonna give me a few product reviews from a guy’s perspective!

Now, I know you are asking, so what did I do or get for Shelli? For her, the love of my life … I did something I have never done professionally. I took a picture … just for her! While on another gig, I sent her a picture to let people know I don’t look like the person she says people say I look like. And she gets a special super exclusive picture that I only share with her … and my mom … until now!

And I guess he’s taller than I thought and I’m shorter than I thought too!

The end.

Jesse Boykins III

Standard

Did you see Wei’s interview of musical artist and naturalisto Jesse Boykins over at CurlyNikki.com (he’s like a CN correspondent now! *lol*)?! If you did, here are a few Q&As that didn’t make the cut! Actually, what really happened was … Wei found them after Nikki had already posted the interview. But, these were some goodies, so we wanted to share!

Q: Are there any natural hair styles that you like the best?
I love them all as long as the hairstyle is a reflection of the person who is wearing it. Natural hair is the best. It’s yours. It’s you!

Q: Have you ever dated a someone that had the “need “ to wear “headgear” to bed? How did/would you deal with that?
Yes … a scarf. And it was cool. You know, if you like the person and the scarf isn’t smelly or anything, then it’s cool. If it stinks or something, then you may have a issue. But that can be fixed by talking with each other. No biggie.

Q: OK. Now … what if you were walking through the grocery store and your S.O. (Significant Other) wanted you to re-up on some hair care products. Would you know what to pick up?
No! I wouldn’t even do it! There are so many natural hair care products and brands out there now. I’d have no idea. I’d get a list.
