*mom sticks her uninvited hand into my hair*
mom: are you sure you want to do this? it's thick.
me: that's the point. thanks mom.
mom: i mean...as long as you like it. i want to see how this goes
me: why did you get a perm in the first place
mom: because it was too thick, i couldn't comb it
me: you don't comb it half the time now
mom: that's not the point
oh old[er] black women...
