Just got another one of these “fan” requests:
I am a fan of you and your work as an actress. I hope you are doing well and wanted to know how I can get an autographed photo of you. I tried to write you a while back, but never heard anything and wanted to try again. Thanks so much for your time. I wish you continued success and blessings :) Take Care and have a great week.

At least this one included an address. Most of them don’t, which leaves me scratching my head a little. Seriously, it’s not that I think I am not worthy of having a fan, but I’d have to really drink the Kool-Aid to believe that this someone wanting my autograph for legitimate reasons... =)
