When I was a kid, I was hanging out at my grandparents’ house with some other members of my family. My dad has my young cousin (1-2 years old) seated on his lap. We are of Scottish descent, and have the red hair/blue eyes/freckles combo, but my branch of the family displays it more than the others. So my little cousin, much more used to his parents’ mostly un-freckled skin, is staring intently at my dad’s heavily-freckled arms. Eventually, he very carefully reaches down, pinches my dad’s arm, and shoves his fingers into his mouth, as the entire room burst out laughing.

We still occasionally tease him about the time he tried to eat my dad’s freckles.
