Actually WANTED A Red Wedding

, , , , | Related | July 17, 2014

(My grad school colleague is a true, bright redhead. She’s showing a bunch of us pictures of her family on her wedding day. All four of the sibs are redheads, the youngest boy with a huge red ‘fro. Her parents are both mousy brunettes.)

Me: “So… both your parents must carry one copy of the recessive gene for red hair.”

Colleague: “Yup.”

Me: “Which gives them a… one in four chance of ginger?”

Colleague: “Yup.”

Me: “Which they hit…”

Colleague: “Four times in a row. Yup.”

Me: “Your youngest brother looks like Carrot Top.”

Colleague: “Yup. It’s his style. My parents wanted him to shave it off for my wedding… I forbid him.”
