Redheaded Stranger

I love being a redhead....hell, it is all I've EVER been so there is no sense in bitching about it now...but, I've got something to say..

Where I work, all of the Admin and Management staff eat lunch together EVERY DAY in the conference, most of admin staff are lovely young ladies....of course, the OWNER of the COMPANY is a lovely young lady herself....anyway, I digress...the other day, I was having my BBQ Pork sandwich in the conference room when I said something that I haven't been able to live down since...

I was sitting there, minding my own business, when I overheard one of the "girls" say, "OOOOHHH, he was SOOOO dreamy!! He was tall, dark, had these DREAMY eyes, and he was SOOOO handsome.."...

Well, folks, that was it for me...and I had HAD, let me describe some of the guys that I work with...most of them are at LEAST 5'11", and have darkish hair, dark or blue eyes, and are in quite good shape....

Anyway, I looked up from my sandwich, and I said..."THAT is what I don't get about you wimmen....what the hell is up with "Tall, Dark, and Handsome"?!?!...When was the last time you heard someone say..."OH. MY. GAWD!! I just met the most WONDERFULLY handsome guy!! He is 6'1", REDHEADED, PALE SKIN, and covered from head to toe in FRECKLES!!!"..

Yeah, you got is a word of advice to the "ladies"....the NEXT time that you say "Tall, Dark, and Handsome"....just realize that there are MILLIONS of us Redheads who are mentally smacking the piss out of you each time you say that....

so..there....enough I mind being a redhead?..nope...that's what I am...hell, I ENJOY being different...I just wish that being a Redhead was cool...oh, and to all you "Tall, Dark, and Handsome" guys...kiss my Redheaded Ass..

Ask a THOUSAND ladies to describe their "PERFECT" man, and I will give you 10 to 20 that NONE of them describes a Redhead.

Comments so far:

Honey, ask a thousand men and not one of 'em will describe their perfect woman as a fat chick with a good personality, either. ;)

We're all, pointers AND setters - wired that way!

This is the first time that I've been to this site... I like a lot of what I see. You have a well-maintained weblog, and your writing is quite good.

Keep up the good work!

Aakash: Thank you very much! But, don't worry, the tone and quality of my posts varies quite a bit..heh...

I feel your pain, brother, but all I can say is I'm lucky it's the reverse for women. Mind if I link to this from my site? Best, Victoria.
