Womens Day At The Beauty Salon
I didn't expect to be picked up from my house after my son, Zachary got off of the bus. I expected to be home - with my son we're bored with nothing to do. Yes - my son and I play together, because, I don't allow him to play with the other children in my community, because they cuss like sailors and they a re not home trained (if they cuss like they do). As usual - I waited for my great niece to arrive to my apartment. This was when my twin sister, Sherri arrived unannounced - without notice she was coming. I was very happy to see her, my niece, Octavia, my nephew Justin, and my mom, Ruth. "She was the one who was getting her hair done at the beauty salon." I said, "Thank GOD for my family arrival." I immediately came out of my apartment to greet my family on my front lawn, while we wait for my son, Zachary to arrive from school. 15 minutes after, Zachary arrived on the bus - we (my family) was ready to go to the beauty salon. My son and I would always (if Justin) is in route - ride with him in his car, because, Octavia's car was always packed, because, she has three children (my great niyeces, Ta'Neisha and Laila and my great nephew, Christian) and my mom, Ruth and my twin sister, Sherri and Octavia, herself. We (my family) on our journey - a stop at the gas station first - afterwards - our journey officially began. On the way, Justin and I laughed and talked about life and what going on in his life, but, there were certain thing he wanted to talk about and certain things he did not want to talk about and laughing at the things he (Justin) wanted to talk about - to pass the time until we arrived at the beauty salon for my mom, Ruth's hair appointment. It was vaguely twenty minutes on the dot - we (family) was the first to arrive at the beauty salon for my mom hair appointment 30 minutes before my moms beautician, Barbara arrived. My nephew, Justin had to leave the beauty salon - so - he dropped me off at the front door. "He took my son, Zachary and my great nieces, Ta'Neisha and Laila for a ride." My niece, Octavia parked her car. It was cool outside, so my mom immediately offered me a spot in the 'back seat' of Octavia's car. "I didn't mind that!" I did not waste time getting out of the cool weather. My moms actions and her way of thinking is always abrupt when it comes to her children. Barbara Hendricks - my moms beautician finally arrived. Octavia assisted that she had to leave for a brief moment, I got out of the car to accompany mom and Barbara into the Beauty Salon. In the salon, my mom, Ruth, Barbara and I started a conversation about my cousin, Jeanene and the "bum" she's eloped with. During our conversation, I found out that my cousin, Jeanene doesn't realize the kind of person she's with -- "completely pathetic!" Moving on - before I throw up! Barbara started preparing the solution for my moms hair. We contained our conversation about Jeanene. In between settings, Barbara also put in a video CD, "One of Tyler Perry's movies, 'Made a Goes To Jail'" The best of comedy! After a while, I receive a phone call from my twin sister. She was at our dad's house with Justin and the children and Octavia. The children (My son Zachary, my great nieces, Ta'Neisha and Laila and great nephew, Christian) ran up to their grandfather. "He was so happy to see his grand children!" I was excited to for my father to see his grand children. They had so much fun together I wish I could of seen my father's face. Meanwhile - Barbara was setting my moms hair for the blow dryer, we watched Tyler Perry's movie and continued to talk about Jeanene and the rude awakening she's going to experience when she finds out the kind of man she eloped with - that's if she opens her eyes to the deception. With in twenty minutes, Barbara completed my moms hair. I had already called ahead for Sherri to come and pick me and our mom. Barbara's next appointment arrived before we left. Mom and I felt every comfortable that Barbara's next appointment arrived, so that she would not be alone in the Beauty Salon. Mom and exited out from the beauty salon and we went our separate ways. Justin preceded to take Zachary and I home, but, I asked Justin to stop to get something to eat - for Zachary's sake. "I didn't have time to cook dinner." Afterwards - Justin preceded to take Zachary and I to our apartment. That was the end of our night! I had a wonderful time with my nephew (part of the time) and my niece, Octavia (also - part of the time) and my twin sister, Sherri.and the children ---"Well, you know!". I spent most of my time with my mom, Ruth and Barbara Hendricks, moms beautician. "Awesome night and a blessed one!"
