It’s Good To Be A Ginger

When I was growing up, I could not stand my curly red hair… it was the 60’s/70’s and I wanted to be a go-go dancer in a cage when I grew up, and I needed long straight blonde hair for that lol.

Once I grew older and realized people paid money for hair like mine it must be okay.  I must be lucky I decided… after all, my hair just grew out of my head all curly and red and I didn’t have to pay anyone or sit at a hair salon for hours.

So, therefore, I’ve come to think that, yes, it’s good to be a ginger.  =)
