Time for a confession.
I'm the kid who got teased for most of his school life.
I'm the kid who got picked last for the football teams.
I'm the kid who always came back from school holidays with a suntan through a sieve.
And bright red instead of tanned.
You see, the thing is, My name's Ben, and I'm Ginger.
Well, at least the bit of hair that's still left on my head is.
But, after many years of trauma, at least it explains one thing.
