We pity the fools.
As many of you know, we sent the latest Decatur CD Newsletter on Tuesday, detailing new releases and the like. We also included some news about our forthcoming expansion into the half of our building currently taken up by Terra Mater salon. The response to the latter was overwhelming. Here are just a few things various readers replied with:
"What great news!"
"Awesome, awesome, awesome. I would totally buy sheet music if you stocked it."
"The news...is cause for true jubilation. Make it happen, man."
"I will be one of the first to buy a beer while shopping for music or buy a CD while quenching my thirst."
While our hearts were warmed with the touching words of support so many of you sent along, we have an admission to make. Better yet, let's let another anonymous reader hint at it for us:
"I, for one, am still waiting for the drive through..."
For the uninitiated, that particularly foolproof customer is referencing the gag we played on April 1 a few years back. And last year, as plenty of you probably recall, we concocted a prank involving a Tower Records buyout. And yes, this year, our April Fool's joke was about our friends next door at Terra Mater.
But rest assured, the salon is going strong and not shutting down anytime soon. We apologize to those of you who were anticipating a larger, decidedly more pubby Decatur CD. We're gonna keep on keeping on, however, and that means more beer in the future, even if it's coming out of a keg in a trash can and not a tap on a bar.
Thanks for your support, folks. We look forward to fooling many of you a year from now...
