    Some people have red hair not orange. My sisters hair was red not orange. Then again, she is the daughter of the devil.

    Well I think the word Red just covers a greater number of shades than Orange does.

    Actually, real redheads are mostly called Ginger over here.

    Bad does not begin to describe her. She is three years older than I am. One time she tried to break my leg. Another time she hit me in the nose the day after I had sinus surgery. She's Cruella's twin.

    Oh_Yeah, it's cold here. Come watch tv with me under this blanket. By the way, make sure you wash first. Oh yes, and ummm drink this special elixir I prepared for you.

    Got me!

    You know, if red hair was called orange, then I'd be orange7.5. I don't like the sound of that.

    Just don't call it "strawberry blond." That's what my mom calls my hair and I throw up a bit in my mouth every time I hear it.

    Why is it called red hair when it is clearly orange?

    I've always been polite and just gone along with nodding and agreeing when clearly orange hair is labeled red.
