“Are you mean? I heard Redheads are mean!”
WTH? Great conversation starter.
She continued, “Or are you nice?” I replied” I’m nice…..until I’m not” and then gave her a wink.
I had just sat down with a group of people who included some new faces. This woman, who came from a country of mostly dark-haired and dark-eyed residents continued to stare me down. She was the size of a kindergartner so I figured I could take her if she made any fast moves
The group began to chat about an upcoming event we were all involved in but when the conversation lulled she piped up again “So are you mean?”
I relayed the story to a friend “Seriously, do you believe that? Guess that would be redhead stereotyping”. She laughed “Well it probably doesn’t help that you and I have RBF. (resting bitch face) You also have a way of looking right through someone. I can’t tell if God’s giving you a word or if you are reading someone’s mail. It’s a little intimidating”
I sighed ” I am probably in my own little world. Just stressing out trying to remember if I locked my back door.”
Years ago, I received an email from Fr. Neal who had moved to Costa Rica. “You’ll never guess what they call redheads down here! They call them Al Qaeda!”
Oh my, everyone’s a comedian
It’s ok if you are afraid of redheads. I am seriously afraid of clowns. Oh wait….don’t most clowns have red hair?
Damn! Maybe I’m afraid of redheads too.
