"braids"... just the topic makes me laugh. During my last visit to AC, in the early am, I was very hungover, walking down the beach (south) and some friendly ladies said to me, "braids... braids girl?" I said, without even looking at them, because my head was pounding so badly, "no, I don't know how to braid". And they all laughed hysterically at me. That's when I realized, they wanted to braid my nappy, unbrushed hair. It was really funny... you just had to be there.
