England???

I was eating in CiCi's pizza with my boyfriend yesterday and I went up to get us some drinks but the ice was low, so i told the guys in the back that the machine needed more. They told me to hold on, so I waited for them. This guy comes out of the bathroom from behind me. He walks over to the machine to get another drink and ice and he starts staring at me. I tell him that the ice is low and he has to wait for them to refill it. He smiles and says "oh it's low." I nodded. Then he looked over at me again and asked "Are you from England?" I was looked at him like WTF. I said no, and he just shrugged his shoulders and walked back to his seat. So I was left there with this blank expression on my face wondering why in the hell would he ask me something like that. Have any of you girls gotten any off the wall questions from other people when you started wearing your natural hair outside. This one just blew my mind because I've never gotten that before when I was relaxed. Now that I"m natural, more people want to come up to talk to me. It's wierd. :?

    That's very strange! Do you live in the South? Perhaps they figure that someone has to be from an exotic place (although England isn't that exotic) to actually wear their hair naturally curly.

    Yea I'm originally from Alabama, now I'm living in Florida. But still, I was like what gave him the notion to come at me with that question. I told my boyfriend about it, he had that same blank WTF expression on his face too. Guess if your'e black and curly, you can't be truly black huh. Gotta be from another country. That's so crazy.

    Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
    Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

    I was thinking the same thing as Suburbanbushbabe. I could only imagine that he had another motive for asking. Do you have an accent? Maybe that's it.

    People think I'm from Africa everywhere I go! I don't mind... I think its a combination of the hair, skin tone and bone structure. I take it as a compliment! :P
    4a/4b... at this point, Henna has to be my friend, cause I've tried EVERYTHING else!!

    Henna, Afro Detangler, KBB hair cream, Vitamin E oil, Qhemet AOHC, AND no more letting my hair dry curly... darn knots are driving me crazy!!:happy7:
