A Letter to Seventeen Magazine

By  | 

Dear Seventeen Magazine,

In 1993, you put a call out for “regular” girls to send in their pictures to be featured in a future issue.

My mom did my hair. I practiced in front of the mirror. I sent a picture and waited to hear from you. I was positive you would choose me.

Eighteen years later, and I’m still waiting to hear from you.

Maybe your message got accidentally deleted from our answering machine? Or maybe someone was on the phone when you tried to call? Or maybe your letter to me got lost in the mail?

Here’s my updated contact information in case you need it.

Sill waiting,

    You even had the "making love to the camera" look. Definitely must have been a case of lost mail, or deleted message. This is hilarious- and I can completely relate to the dream of being in seventeen magazine.

    Awww… In all seriousness you were definitely pretty enough to be put in the magazine. You look like a cross in the picture between a cousin of mine and Anne Hathaway.
