Terrible news

Crazy Grammie Charlotte was a Reed, and because I know zero about genealogy, I looked up our family names on the source for all information that is undeniably true, and I'm distraught:

"Reed" is a variant of the surname "Read", which is commonly believed to be a nickname-derived surname referring to a person's complexion or hair being ruddy or red.

I COME FROM A FAMILY NAMED FOR BEING GINGERS.  Apparently they've been weeded out by natural selectivity, because I don't have any ginger relatives that I know of.... but still.  I feel like I found out I was French.  To quote Ms. Handler:  "Along with the 97 percent of women who can see, I have never been a fan of redheaded men."  I'm concerned for my gene pool.  What if I pass it on to a son?  There's gingervitis in my blood!?  Somebody hold me.*

*Kidddddddddddddddddddding.  No gingers or French folk were harmed in the making of this blog post, but seriously Beth, you and your gingophilia stay away from my unborn sons.


  1. SPRAGUE! This is GREAT news! I love the gingers... maybe that's why we're friends?

    Either way, maybe someday I'll have a little girl who inherits my love for the gingers and you have a little ginger boy and they date... and then we become grammies together!!!!! NO?!

  2. Hahaha, your name is hidden for some weird reason, but I forgot that you love gingers too!! You and Beth will be bff's, when you're not fighting over my brethren.

  3. Um yes, and I have a famous ginger notch on my belt... should have held on to that one.

    Also: this Beth character is going downnnnn. ;)

  4. Has Beth seen this? KK I wouldn't be concerned about your sons...I'd be concerned about you. Although - really you should just be happy. We all need a little more Beth in our lives.
