I Wanna Buck Too (DD4L)

Watching Bring It with Ms. Diana and the Dancing Dolls has ignited something inside of me. I want Ms. Diana to yell at me until I cry at practice, I wanna roll my eyes at Neva in the hallway on the way to stand battle and I  wanna walk through the hallways on competition day with my bonnet on too, but most of all I wanna touch the top of Tracy’s’ flattop....more
