Yesterday I was paying for a drink at a gas station when the guy at the register said, “Nice hair! Is that your natural color?”
If you’ve seen a couple of my earlier posts you’ll know I have red hair. Very bright, very unnaturally red hair.
Thinking the guy was joking I replied, quite sarcastically, “Yup, it’s always been this way.”
The guy looked stunned and said, “Wow.’
He thought I was being serious…
No sir. I do not have naturally fire-hydrant-red hair. I wish I did. But I’m afraid no one does.
I didn’t even think to clarify, I just grabbed my drink and left.
