Wild Redhead

I could not stop thinking about two things tonight when a woman who had, had way too much to drink started in on me, the first was her hair and the second was her lipstick.  I could have cared less at what she was saying, it all sounded like blah, blah, blah.

Let’s start with the hair, it is red, wild and looks like a toss between  Bozo the Clown and Carrot Top.  I don’t care what you are saying to me I cannot take you serious if you look like your about to perform under the Big Top.  Add to that her lipstick was sort of on her lips,but  mostly her cheek, and I’m looking for the peanuts and cotton candy.  WTH, where were her friends????  All I could hear her saying was “blah, blah, blah….I have crazy red hair and no longer can put my lipstick on straight….blah,blah,blah.”  I swear my eyes were like pinwheels spinning in some kind of a trance from that hair. 
After all that tonight, I came home and started thinking about other scary redheads in relation to this woman.  The few that came to mind:
Ronald McDonald: bad hair and everyone hates clowns.
Woody Allen: wild hair and questionable decision making abilities.
Lizzie Borden: another red head who was CRAZY (40 whacks to mom with an axe) but also lucky (walked free).
Napoleon Bonaparte:  small ones are the worse.  The woman tonight was not small, but had some kind of issue.
Orangutans:  animal kingdom yes, but it did actually come to mind when she was sloshing champagne all over the place. The hair!!!! Orangutan-ish.
Salome: daughter of King Herod (bad man), apparently she danced to obtain the head of John the Baptist.  Crazy family!!  I’m betting this woman tonight comes from crazy too.
Then again we were at a Ladies Night Fashion Event for a local business (thanks South Texas Tack) and champagne was being served. I know she had way to much to drink , so she unloaded on me about not answering an email. I can take the Blah, Blah, Blah part she was dishing out. We've all been there. Live and learn., but give me a break, I'm positive she did not make the decision about her hair and lipstick while she was drinking. 

Not wanting to leave on a sour note, here are a few (real and fictional) NICE redheads that came to mind:  Annie, Ron Howard, Wilma and Pebbles Flintstone, Nicole Kidman, Ariel, Madeline Kahn, Anne of Green Cables, Bette Davis, Daphne (from Scooby Doo), Katherine Hepburn, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Elmo
