Instead of wearing a shirt that says “Kiss Me, I’m Irish!” I’m going to cross out the “Irish” and write “Ginger” this Saturday. What kind of reaction do you think I’ll receive?
Shocking news. My mom revealed I might be Irish and/or Scottish today. I was always under the impression my red hair was Norsk and Russian-Jewish.
