“What Color is It?”

My friend and I were sitting at McAlister’s enjoying our lunch a few weeks ago, when a waitress came up to ask if we needed refills.  (For the record, I always need refills on my sweet tea.)

After she had done her due diligence, she looked at me and said, “I have to tell you, your hair is just beautiful!”

“Thank you,” I replied.

“What color is it?” she asked.

“Oh, I don’t dye it.  It’s completely natural,” I said.

“No, what color is it?” she repeated. 

I’m sure the look on my face matched my utter confusion at what she was asking.  So she continued, “Like strawberry blonde, or…?”

(My theory is this: if you ask a stupid question, I’m likely going to give you a snarky answer.)

 “Orange,” I said.  “But most people would probably classify it as red.”

I’m still not quite sure what the waitress was asking, but she seemed satisfied and walked away (which is when my friend and I burst into laughter).
