NOPE! Your eyes are not playing tricks on you. HAHAHA!!!!
I'm sure some serious memories come to mind when you saw this picture....
- Getting excited when your mami or papi (whoever did your hair) matched them with your entire outfit - especially picture day.
- Attempting to wrap one around your hair so tight that it snaps and knocks you hard on a knuckle.
- Then trying to sleep with them in your head so you don't have to endure the pain of getting your hair done over.
- Oh yeah and when you had a style and they were tied at the ends of your hair- don't turn your head too quick because you could've possibly lost an eye!
I mean I can go on. What I find interesting while reminiscing about these hair accessories and discussing it with friends is all the different names. In my casa, we called them "bolitas" pronounced bow-lee-tas which means little balls in Spanish. I asked some friends yesterday and I heard "knockers", "click clacks", and "bo bo's".
Am I missing any? I so wanna know....
