My Dearest John,
You know I love you more than any other musician on this earth, hell I almost love you more than my own kids, and Husband, so you have to know how excited I was when I came across this site, Wear your music. A site advertising how cool it would be for me to have a bracelet made of the actual strings from your guitar, strings that have been played on by you. A bracelet that every time I wore it, I would know that your hands have touched those strings, meaning your hands were in essence touching my wrists. Every. Time. I. Had. It. On. Which by the way, would be always. A little sidebar about the proceeds? They go to charity. How excellent, you're hot, talented and have an open heart.
I logged on, ready to purchase, (new budget be damned) I was going to have one of your bracelets if it took every cent I've made from the measly ads on this blog.... all $3.48 of it. Seriously, I have a little fun money stashed in my paypal, Hubby would be none the wiser. My friends would envy my new bling and I would have just a little piece of you to carry around everyday. Avril Lavigne popped up on the home page.. Meh! Where is my John? I finally found you and to my shock and dismay, your bracelets are selling for $200 each.... and you aren't included, although I would get a handy little case and certificate of authenticity.
Now, I realize that this money is for charity, but $200? Who can pay that for a guitar string bracelet? Maybe some of your younger fans who's daddy's have deep pockets, but for moi? A Stay at Home Mom to 3 kids, trying to spend less than $100 a week on groceries? Ain't gonna happen. My thoughts, in case you are wondering, would be to lower the price, you'll sell more, and in turn make more money for your charity. The other option would be to give me a discount, say $25 for every ticket stub I could come up with from having seen you every time you have landed here in the 'Ham. I've been following you since before you discussed with my Husband (back in his radio days) a shit you had just taken in their bathroom. Doesn't that count for something?
I love you John and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
I'm A Mom!...?
