Random Thoughts from a Redhead


I love random thoughts. Here are a few about being a redhead...

1. When I left the hair color on my head too long last month, several friends said, "What happened to your red hair?" That made me feel special, knowing they liked my color choice. Even though I dye it, I am a true redhead--I just dye it a lighter shade than my original auburn.

2. The first time I colored my hair was a disaster. It turned out maroon. Aha. And I had spent my last $4 on hair color, so couldn't fix it. I was teaching school at the time, and several kids stared at me when I first walked into the building that morning. Finally, to save myself a whole day of questions, I told the entire class, "Yes, I dyed my hair." We had a good laugh together, which helped break the ice. I never bought that shade again.

3. I talked to someone a few days ago who detests her red hair. Imagine! We are the vast minority, which makes us special. Blonds, black-haired ladies, and brunettes spend tons of money to look like us. And she wasn't happy. Made me kind of sad. I love my fiery mop.

Who is your favorite red head?
