TTTT: Ashes to Ashes

It has come to my attention that there are some white people who don't know what ashiness is. No, it has nothing to do with smearing the ashes in the fireplace on you, but it has to do with the lack of the good lotion on your body. White people get ashy too but because of their complexions, its harder to see. When your ass is as black as mine, ash stands out like a brother at the Grand Ole Oprie.
So the Tell The Truth Tuesday of the week is: When was the most embarassing instance of ash? (For example, going to workout and your knees look like they've been dusted for fingerprints)

It was the winter and I was running late to class, so I didn't lotion up before I left out of my apartment.

Later that day, I broke my foot and had to go to the emergency room. Naturally, as I had not lotioned up, my ankles and surrounding area were ashy.

My friends who took me to the emergency room got a kick out of my ashy feet.

Needless to say, I learned my lesson and now never leave the house without lotioning up.

I was with a girl once and we were getting hot and heavy. I pulled it out and she giggled. I said coolly "you like that baby?" She said "Yes, but I'd like it more if you put some Lubridrem on it."

I am the ashiest and nappiest hair white gitl I know. I have been known to scratch messages to classmates on my leg during shorts weather. And don't even get me started with the rats nest of a tangle I got going on under my long goldilocks... as a matter of fact - one dread was so bad, I just cut it off... so now when I wear my hair in a ponytail, you can see the short little hairs in the middle of the back of my nappy head... hehehehe
