I really have a thing for ginger men. I've even blogged about my fascination, I love them so much. Something about their hair color, skin tone, maybe the fact that they are rare...I love them. And after some thinking I was able to trace back my ginger-loving roots...all the way to the first ginger I had a crush on.
I started reading the Archie comic books in elementary school; every time my mother and I would go to the grocery store I would beg her to let me get one. Over the years I acquired quite a collection. The first time I ever used Ebay I purchased Archie toys. In high school art classes I recreated scenes from the comic books. I wanted to be like Betty when I grew up. And much like my idol Betty (and Veronica) I couldn't get enough of that ginger teenager.
Archie Andrews is probably the most suave ginger there ever was (I mean, he did have two girlfriends!) He seemed to lead such a fun life, I know I wish that I had a friend like Jughead. The gang was so cool, and I'd like to thank Archie for being such a cute ginger. Thanks to him, I loved reading even more and the comics also captured my appreciation for art. What a cute little ginger he is.
I would definitely move to Riverdale and fight Betty and Veronica for him. Right now.
