those pesky boundaries

those pesky boundaries

A friend posted on how people’s boundaries come down when you become pregnant.  Since I have never been pregnant, I can’t say I relate, but I do wonder about people when it comes to my hair (yes, it is a source of angst for me).  Today, I was minding my own business, leaving the grocery store with my whole wheat pita and avocadoes, when a lady stopped me, took me by the arm and looked me squarely in the eyes and said, “You have beautiful hair.”  I have never thought it beautiful and her proclamation made me feel oddly exposed.  At least she didn’t try to touch it.
