When you’re a black girl, doing your hair is always an event.

True Life: I hate first day twistouts & I no longer have a social life
Honestly, after my 21st birthday, I didn’t really care about doing too much —since there are no “milestones” until much later. Yes, I count Social Security eligibility as a milestone.
I do immensely appreciate all the birthday wishes, gifts, etc. Considering, I don’t make a big deal about those type of things, it means a lot for people to go out of their way for me.
Not a dumb question at all. Sorry for the late response.
Just quickly gleaning the lyrics: I believe it has to do with decisions we make that are possibly evil, yet we make them anyway. Sort of a battle between morality and what may make us feel good (or we think so —- hence, the reference to alcohol). We secretly want to do things that we inherently know we shouldn’t, and when we do we sometimes pay the consequences.
I may be over analyzing, but the last line: “And what they don’t tell you in church is// Saints are sinners too,” makes the point that even the most “moral” people are tempted at some point or another. It’s a part of human nature.
If you listen to their whole album, the whole feel of the album is about temptation (Gypsy Woman) and inner struggles that challenge who we are (Always Dirty Never Clean).
Hopefully, I was of help. Sorry for the dissertation.
See, I’ve dealt with people throwing up in the bathrooms and not cleaning it up, people leaving garbage in the hallways and people being loud at all hours of the night. But niggas now fucking with MY mail?
I need to move the fuck out of here before I get turnt up and camp out watching the mailbox with some camo on.
