How it feels to be a non-redhead
On Halloween, I wore a multi-colored wig. It was my first time not being a redhead.

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her.

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.
