Gingers are like having Negative Type O blood. They can save everyone but no one can save them.
That’s what the anesthesiologist told me when I had surgery last week.
I rattled off a list of the antibiotics I’m allergic to — there are at least three — and she said, “Oh, that’s because you’re a redhead.”
Apparently, redheads are allergic to everything.
And everyone’s allergic to us.
But she said she was still jealous of my hair.
