It's a Ginge Thing

I want to be a Weasley.

Alright so I’m not gunna lie I just drank a large iced coffee and I’m a little hyped up – excuse my rambling, or the tangents I’m sure I’ll go on when writing this – just like I’m doing right now. Aside from that, all you Harry Potter buffs out there, this post is for you.

When I was younger I loved the Harry Potter book series. While other kids were watching Are You Afraid of the Dark? or All That, I would be posted up on the couch reading about the adventures of a wizard and his buddies – exciting, I know. Now believe me this was not by choice of course, nobody wanted to be friends with a redhead. One of the reasons why I became so interested in the book and movie series was because of a character named Ron Weasley. The main reason I was drawn to him wasn’t just because he was this clumsy, lovable character that I believe to be even more bad ass then Harry himself, but he was a ginger as well. It’s almost like J.K. Rowling strategically placed Ron into her novels because she knew all the redheaded losers nobody wanted to hang out with would be at home reading her books and needed a hero like Ron to look up to. Pure genius she is.

Anyway, as I grew more fond of Ron and his ginger ways I learned he had an entire family full of gingers. Not just any family but the BEST family. Twin brothers who were hilarious, a sister who Harry Potter, only the coolest kid ever was in love with, three older brothers – one of which trained dragons, and just about the cutest parents anybody could ask for – could they get any better?!! Obviously not. If any of you reading this have seen the movies you know what I’m talking about. I would die to be a part of the Weasley family because they are the definition of ginger-perfection PLUS they have English accents to die for. All you gingers reading this know what I’m talking about. How awesome would it be to have a family who is just all ginger all of the time? Pretty. damn. awesome. Just watch how darn cute they are and try to argue with me reasons why you wouldn’t want to be apart of this family.  It’ll be hard, trust me.

On a  scale of 1 – I’d die to be a Weasley, where do you guys stand?
