Today a hutterite man came up to me and said this:
"You know I can only see you with half of my left eye, but I can tell you're wearing glasses, you're beautiful, and you have red hair."
Those last four words were an arrow through my heart. I do not have red hair. That colour is haunting me. I will not admit to being a ginger. It's STRAWBERRY BLONDE. There may be an orange tinge but certainly not enough for a blind man to notice. I'm seriously distraught. I have always been blonde but this whole year I've had people constantly calling me a ginger or commenting on my red hair. They're wrong, I just know it. I'm sure if I stood next to Lohan or Carrot Top they would take their malicious comments back. I just need to surround myself with all of my red headed friends, then people will recognize that oh so lovely colour radiating off my scalp: blonde.
BUT, this should probably have some positivity. He did say I was beautiful, which eased the pain and also said it was great to see a girl working harder than the boys around her. :)
does this look like red to you? please give me your thoughts.
