Let the countdown officially begin. In just forty short days, I will be forty years old. They say 40 is the new 30 so I'm not too worried about the number. I just wanted to remind all of you out there (all three of you) reading my blog that you have forty days to contact Rick Springfield and beg him to come to my house with his guitar. Listen people. I don't think I can do this without you. I have not yet heard back from the Ellen show so I think they are ignoring my email. I'm considering an intensive letter writing campaign right now. So get out your pens and your spiral notebooks and help me write letters!
I know we can do this as a group. Some of you are probably thinking what good would my one little letter do? It's just like voting. If we all write a letter maybe someone will listen to us. We CAN change the world. Or at least my little corner of it. Yes we can!
He doesn't even need to spend a lot of time with me. I'm imagining it right now. I open the door to see Rick standing on the doorstep. I calmly greet him and let him into the house while offering him a beverage and something to eat. He sits down on the couch, busts out his guitar and starts singing Jessie's Girl. Then he sings Ordinary Girl, gives me a hug, autographs my arm and leaves to go make some other girl's dream come true. I never wash my arm again. He's in. He's out. It's a whirlwind of excitement.
So remember. I need emails to the Ellen show. Letters to her show or to Rick himself. Come on wordsmiths. I KNOW you can do this. YES, YOU CAN!
