Bids start at $2,000 for the soul of Lori N., and so far nobody has made one. Still, 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. Lori was in a coma for three weeks, and 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 said. "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."
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.
