I was minding my own business when someone sent me the pic below on Tumblr.
CHECK GRANDPA OUT!! Lol! Why is he so adorable? Sitting in a computer lab with his bookbag, jean jacket and… slicky ricky straight back BRAIDS (also referred to as jail braids). Chile iCackled.
Sooo you know Granddad has a braider in his neighborhood or retirement village who comes to whip his mane into submission every 2 weeks religiously. His braids look all neat (well as neat as braids with hair that fine can look). They look fresh. I ain’t mad. E’em though I could be, since it should be a misdemeanor for any grown man to still rock cornrows.
I’m actually impressed by the fact that he ain’t got no male-pattern baldness. ALL of Grandpa’s hair is present. Thin, but present. And for him to choose to rock braids in his sunset years though… lol. Lemme find out Snoop got a Vanilla Granddad he ain’t tell us about. Or Uncle. Walking around look like a bleached Slim Thug. I love it.
Oh and you know this OG be pulling all the geriatric ladies. You can tell his swag is on a hundred thousand fiber pills. He prolly runs things at Bingo night. WHO MAD?
Either way, WHOSE GRANDDAD IS THIS???
