And made me feel like the Queen I am.
He first asked me about my locs and how long I have been growing them. He said he used to have them but had to cut them because he knew he would go bald soon. He didn’t look a day over 30. Then he saw the tattoo on my wrist( my west African dwennimmen), and asked me if I knew it was an African symbol. I smiled and said that’s why I got it. He smiled and shook his head in disbelief. Then I told him I even had a Africa on my back; his smile got wider.
I’m not even sure why, but he made my day in less than 5min. The way he looked in my eyes and smiled at me with nothing but happiness on his face.
He really made me feel like the many queens of Africa.
I’ll never forget him.
