Letter to a Stranger 10th Edition

29 May

Dear American Apparel,

I understand that you strive to be different and/or sometimes a little strange, but why the heck are you selling these again? And what causes them to sell for 6 bucks a piece? You stitching them with pure gold?

The scrunchie was not cute in the early 90s when it was so popular you couldn’t go ten feet without seeing a neon pink covered elastic band cutting off the circulation in an innocent girl’s hand. I mean, this was the same era that brought us over sized shirts and plastic heart rings to tie the excess fabric into a knot but still, not cute.

For the sake of mankind, please just burn all of the scrunchies you have in your warehouse.

As always,

    I don’t want to live in a world filled with dirty, ugly Scrunchies ever again. It was bad enough when I was 10! Why introduce this pain and suffering to a new legion of young women who may not know any better?!

    I have plenty of photographic evidence to show the unsuspecting, that’s for sure!
