Red – Five Minute Friday

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve been able to post here, but I couldn’t pass up this prompt. It’s about me!
Red?
I AM red. Red hair is the first thing people notice and the last thing they forget about me. It was my nickname through elementary and even high school: Debbie the Red, Red on the Head, just plain Red.
In third grade Thomas Geisberg called me a Redheaded Baldheaded Chinese Woodpecker, so I called him Gooseburger.
My favorite, because it’s the most creative, was in high school, when Star Wars came out the first time, and a friend dubbed me R1, for Red One, but after R2D2.
One of the best greetings, to me: “How’s my favorite redhead?”
I like being Red.

  1. This was fun to read! I loved the connections to your past and your identity as a red-head. This was a hard prompt this week, but you handled it well. I’m glad I stopped by from FMF.
