Let's hope my mum sends more

In between the ages of four and ten, my hair was not corkscrew curly. Once I hit eleven, it was, as the kids in school told me, like I put my finger in a light socket.  Another good reason to have dreadlocks, although I have noticed, since I let my hair dread up, how many great hair products there are for curly hair these days. (Though none are available in India.)

I think this photo is from the third grade.  I'm guessing from the state of my chiclet teeth.  They are the teeth of an eight-year-old.

Apparently the photographer was in a rush, and centering was one of those things that just seemed like too much trouble.
