How To Survive The Summer When You're Ginger

How To Survive The Summer When You're Ginger

First off, note that I'm a 'Ginger.' Also note that these problems can apply year-round, so yeah... good to know I feel!

 

1. Sunburn.

Its a proper pain in the epidermis. Some gingers can be so bad, I've heard rumours of actual' 'Moonburn'... While that last point is made up, you get what I'm saying...

4. When My Friends Make Me Feel Stupid When I Try To 'OWN' The Word 'Ginger.'

Like how African-American rappers did in the late 80's with the horribly evil term derived from the just as offensive word: 'Negroid.' ...

"Oh, you can't say that to me, that's racist" is usually followed up by, "Shut the fuck up Fanta Balls!"

5. When The Shop's Electronic Door Is Slow To Open When I Walk Up To It, And My Friends Accuse Me Of Having No Soul...

6. "Oh, You Look Like _____ (Insert Famous Ginger's Name Here)!"

No, I don't look like them, because... I... I actually am them, funnily enough?! (This has never worked or brought me any luck with the girls... But to be fair, I only really try it with a shitty 'Royal' accent when someone says I look like Prince Harry)
