Ginger Blindness

Ginger Blindness

As a redhead, I get a lot of people telling me they think they know me from somewhere. I also get a lot of people telling me I remind them of famous redheads, anyone from Marcia Cross to Carrottop. People I look nothing alike. I know this, because according to a Buzzfeed quiz, the celebrity I look most like is Jennifer Lawrence.

It’s been proven people can’t tell apart others from races not their own, and I’m convinced the ginger race is no exception.

So to the family at Jolane’s in Glenview staring at me and within earshot talking about where they know me from, to the guy I just met swearing we know each other from somewhere,  you don’t know me at all. You are just redist.

    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. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. 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.
