Ladies, please remember to secure your ponytails and weaves …

True story… So, during a recent sound check at church; I was bouncing and praising so much… I started to feel as if my ponytail was bouncing more than it should. After a quick check my ponytail ended up in my hand. What to do??? what to do????

Well, I decided to yank it off and keep on singing. My praise leader later stated over the mic… “Ladies, please remember to secure your ponytails and weaves before we begin to praise. They have fallen off in the past.” I shouted back… trust me I know from experience.

The moral of this little story is NEVER take yourself too seriously. Why? Cuz stuff happens 🙂
