I Should Be Less Sarcastic

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.
