Flashback Friday- BOLITAAAAAAS!

NOPE! Your eyes are not playing tricks on you.  HAHAHA!!!!

I’m sure some serious memories come to mind when you saw this picture….  

Like:

  1. Getting excited when your mami or papi (whoever did your hair) matched them with your entire outfit – especially picture day.
  2. Attempting to wrap one around your hair so tight that it snaps and knocks you hard on a knuckle.
  3. Then trying to sleep with them in your head so you don’t have to endure the pain of getting your hair done over.
  4. 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….
