Yep, that was interesting. I wasn't expecting that at all.
I've had a female co-worker ask if she could touch my hair. "I've been spying it across the room. Can I please touch it?" I said sure, and she rubbed it a bit. When I saw her looking a little embarrassed after that, I told her that I love feeling it all the time too. "It's so floofy." And then I ran my hands up and down the back.
Various gals whom I don't know have come up to me in the break room or down the halls to remark on my hairstyle.
I think I'm going to keep it this way for awhile. =D
