Lessons in Ethics: The Moral of Annie

annie

The moral of Annie is that there was a time when it really didn’t matter how talented your child was and/or how well they could sing, if it was a Ginger, you’d still rather leave it at an orphanage.

And let that be a lesson to all of you people who don’t yet know what to do about your Ginger children. There’s probably an orphanage near you.

    Ha ha – I say the same with how I’m considered an ugly woman because my hair isn’t blond. I dated a lot of men in my youth you eventually dumped me and part of the reason was I wasn’t a blond and they didn’t like that. They especially hated when I dyed my hair black when they requested that I change my naturally auburn hair to blond.

    • As you’ve dated A LOT of men, I’m not sure you can call yourself ugly. Plus, I’ve seen pictures of you that discredit that statement 😛

        Well not a lot of men in the bigger scheme of things but a lot of men who really really like blond women. I have no idea why they dated me, especially the ones who liked stupid women. Keep walking dude, this is going to end badly. 😀

      • LOL
        So you’re highly educated, have 1001 ideas/opinions/thoughts/views, you’re independent, outspoken, and you think the issue was hair colour? 😀

        LOL – well partially. I think they were looking for a certain fantasy woman that was dumb and blond.

      • Well that sounds much more plausible.

    My parents took me to see Annie on Broadway when I was a young child, and I promptly decided to run away from home & go live with Daddy Warbucks…he seemed to have it good, in his mansion. I made it as far as the end of the block (where I found my cousin peeing off the curb, and he told his mother I was running away & his mother told my father and that was the end of that)

    I kid you not, our little village on the hill is smeared with gingers… Brazilian gingers! They’re everywhere. A family of them just opened a beer & burger place, which is actually really, really good.

    My family of gingers is putting a **hex** on you. You’re jealous of our superiority and ability to turn heads with our uniqueness and beautiful pale skin. We’ll get you my pretty! You and your little dogs too!!!! 🐶

    Hmm…none in our family, and I’m pretty sure I never even dated one. Does an ex-Prime Minister count?

    Being an ex-ginger (gone white, I have) I have some expertise in this topic. In South America ginger hair is considered very auspicious, hence the number of children with ginger hair. (Et tu, John.) But the basic point is harder: what do we do with children who cannot be cared for or are not loved by their parents? In the U.S. we slam the parents for being jerks but offer almost no help with the situation. Because orphanages became abusive over time, we dumped the idea and haven’t reconsidered how a modern orphanage might work. We offer foster homes to unwanted kids and when the supply outstrips the demand, as it often does, the protective rules get sloughed off and abuses occur. (Was a foster parent once, I was.).

      there should be classes (and I think licenses) to have children. There have been a couple of heartrending cases of abused kids here in central PA recently. We have the Milton Hershey School nearby where kids can go to a decent school and live away from their parents (who are not all bad, some just need some help)

    • Is there such a thin as an ex-ginger, or are you actually recovering gingers? 😀
      Amusing to have a trait go with one’s family name.

        I call myself a failed ginger because my hair was never quite red and has now become more brown yet I’m still super pale.

    even the thought of the musical Annie gives me a bit of anxiety since when I saw it at Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh, we were in the nosebleed seats. I was terrified the whole damn time thanks to my acrophobia and I couldnt’ leave since it was a school trip

    as for red hair, I’ve always wanted it rather than my dark brown. I wanted Jessica Rabbit red! .

        After you posted I was looking for this clip but couldn’t remember what the song was called! Stupid brain… (then by coincidence she posted it at the right time for me to be able to pretend I remembered it all on my own 😉 )
