Redhead Thanksgiving

Redhead Thanksgiving
Things I’m thankful for this year as a ginger: That it’s cool to look different these days. For sunscreen. For the EPA calling out sunscreen that doesn’t work.

She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
