My girlfriend painted her hair today and all I could think of when I saw the colour she got was beetroots; and I just fkng couldn’t stop laughing for 20 mins straight because once, for a New Year’s Eve dinner with friends, I tried to make pink soup and suddenly everything in my kitchen was covered by that wicked colour. Now I fear I’m gonna be single again.
