compliments. kind of. the mystery solved.

ha! you'll never guess what just happened to me!
we were having a bit of an afternoon stroll around the park, when a kindly older gentleman struck up a conversation with Selma; and we chatted it up about redheads
me: "yeah, I have three of them, can you believe it?"
kindly older gentleman: "in the pueblo that I grew up in, there was a whole family of redheads!"
me: "that must have been one good looking family"
. . . and the conversation continued on for a bit like that . . . and then he said it - - "and they don't have freckles!"
so I did my part - - "well, I have freckles, so you never know . . ."
and then he said - - "noooooo . . . you don't have freckles . . . you may have some zits, but you don't have freckles . . ."

well now, that explains it all.
and I'm taking it as a compliment.
on a completely unrelated note, I'm off to wash my face.

oh, so funny. Why don't people think before they speak? I for one happy to like freckles. My sister always had freckles which she never liked but I did. Anyways, I agree with Kasey about you being adorable and beautiful with your freckles.

Um... I don't get it. You clearly have freckles! I wonder why there is such a national aversion to freckles and I wonder what "the freckled kind" looks like?

Very Funny...It's good to know that zits are much better than freckles...where do age spots fit in?
