Joshua's Quote of the Month

This morning I took Joshua and Clare to the Farmer's Market for our weekly dairy/bread run. Standing in front of us was a man who had both a dog and some very impressive dreadlocks. Joshua and Clare were fixated on the dog--Clare was pointing and screeching, Joshua was trying to hide. The man and dog soon left, and we carried on with our normal routine.

When we got back into the car, Joshua said, "Mama, what kind of hair did that man have?"

I was surprised that he even noticed the guy's hair, as fixated as he was on the dog.

"Those are called dreadlocks. Did you like them?"

"Yes, I did!"

"Do you have dreadlocks?"

"No," he said, "but I'm curious what I would look like if I had them."

I immediately called my home phone to record the quote, lest I forget it and become very sad.

The idea of Joshua with dreadlocks is possibly more than that mind can take.

Having just come from Jamaica, home of the dreadlocks, I think Josh should pass.
