I got an e-mail from my friend who hooked me up with the tickets to the Tim and Faith concert the other week. She had gotten a stack of cards and pictures from some of the students to send to Mr. and Mrs. McGraw.

Subject: Something for your blog
Here is a thank-you letter and picture I found from one of the 2nd graders to Faith and Tim. I think he's got a future in guitar art...

The note read:
Dear Mr. and Mrs. McGraw, Thank you so much for singing for us. I loved all the songs you sang. I listen to country music all the time.

Sounds innocent enough, right? Click here to see the guitar.

(My response back to her)
OMG. THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A GUITAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(She wrote back)
Can you imagine sending this to Faith Hill and Tim McGraw!? They will think that is such a hoot.

(I wonder if we're on the same page)
I mean, you think it looks like what my coworkers and I think it looks like, right?

(She joked)
No. What do you mean? It's just a funny-lookin' guitar.

(30 seconds later)
JK. I think he's got the same problem the kid in Superbad had.

(My response)
I didn't see Superbad but please don't tell me you didn't look at that and immediately think that kid REALLY, REALLY, REALLY liked the show.

(She writes)
Tim in particular?

(I ask)
NOW I really want to post it. I thought that's why you sent it???? Am I that inappropriate or are you that innocent?

Of course she thought it resembled what I thought it looked like. We are both that inappropriate I guess, but what did you see when you looked at it?


  1. "And it's not even that big of a deal, something like 8 percent of kids do it."

  2. this is funny. i can totally relate to being astonished by what your students do...i did a post about that once :)

  3. I think Tim needs to get a custom guitar that looks like the picture and play it at his next concert.


Oh goody!
