I was shopping at a Target where I live and this new clerk (lady in her early 70s) who I presume works part-time. She had waited on me a few times before but just randomly said, "I think I've seen you here before. I remember you by your beautiful curly hair."

No more than a week or so later, I'm at Walgreens and an African American gal (probably mid 30s) is the checkout clerk. I complimented her on her curly hair and later explained since I have curly hair I like to compliment others. She replied: "I wish I had yours, mine is borrowed."

I consider those to be my "proud curly moments."
