This story takes the meaning of "selling your soul" to a whole new level. As in the literal meaning of the expression. I've heard of some weird things being sold on eBay but this has to top it all. An Albuquerque woman has put her soul up for sale on eBay, yes her soul.
Bids started at $2,000 for the soul of Lori N., and so far nobody has made one. But there have been a lot of hits and that’s encouraging to Lori. She was a passenger in a car struck by a drunk driver in 2007 and was in a coma for three weeks. She woke up suffering from a stroke, a broken hip, broken pelvis, leg, collarbone, sternum, ribs, a collapsed lung. On top of all that she lost a breast.
Lori was a freelance writer who cannot write much any more. She gets by on part-time inventory work and makes jewelry. Lori figured since her body is pretty much shot, why not market her soul?
“What I’m gonna deliver is the opportunity for someone to save my soul,” Lori told KOB Eyewitness News 4. “They can save it through prayer, they can save it through conversion. They’re also gonna get a certificate detailing the white and black marks on my soul.”
Not really sure how the logistics of all this are going to work...Sort of a spiritual Carfax – the good along with the bad. Lori admitted that her eBay ad is a cry for help.
“I guess you could say that. I’m at the point now, I’m tired. I don’t feel good. I’m near the end of my rope. I really am.”
Lori said she realizes her ad may offend some people’s religious beliefs, but she said she is really hoping just to make contact – maybe with somebody else’s soul.
Thoughts? Is this woman stark raving mad? Making an interesting statement? Offending the masses? Or desperately trying to make some extra dollar?
Considering people have bought up other absurd things on eBay (from plastic bags to a ghost in a jar), I'm sure it won't be long until someone out there places a bid. That said $2,000 is a high starting price. But then again how do you put a price on someone's soul?
