1. You cannot get a spray tan.
Or use foundation for that matter. Considering most of us freckled people fall somewhere between “pale” to “ghostly” on the tan-ness spectrum, the inability to get a fake tan is somewhat problematic.
2. People may think you’re diseased.
One time, while I was babysitting my little sister at the park, a little girl asked me if I had the chicken pox. No, no I do not. And no, the freckles do not itch. And no, please do not touch them…
3. You will receive a plethora of nicknames.
These nicknames will range from cute or creative, to straight up annoying. Or you are just simply referred to as “Freckles”.
4. You will be the victim of a freckle-related pickup line (or 50).
“Excuse me, I just wanted to tell you that I love your freckles.” “Your freckles are so cute!” I can appreciate a good freckle as much as the next girl, but sorry, a freckle pick-up line is not going to get you into my pants.
5. Buying alcohol underage will be difficult.
Mainly because the girl/guy on your fake ID doesn’t have freckles. Pray that it’s dark when you hand it to the bouncer or liquor store cashier.
6. People will think you’re a ginger, regardless of you hair color.
People will tell you that you have no soul, and you will be confused. And then they will say it’s because you are a ginger, and you will be more confused. Whether your hair is brown or blond, people will swear that you’re a ginger. (If you actually have red hair, ignore this, because you definitely are a ginger.)
7. Whether people love them, or hate them, they will be sure to comment on them.
But you should love them. Or at least learn to love them, because they’re probably not going away anytime soon.
