Livin' on a Prayer

I had a dream last night in which I ran into Jon Bon Jovi at a warehouse someplace outside of New York City.

It's not as scary as it sounds. It was during the day and there was a big construction project going on, so lots of people were also around. Jon, as I can now call him, was touring the site with some kind of supervisor and saying hello to the crew. I wasn't working there...I think I just happened to be walking by. But when Jon saw me he stopped and we had the following conversation:

JBJ - "Hey man! It's been a long time. How have you been Earl?"
BBE - "Um...are you talking to me?"
JBJ - "Yeah, man! How you doin' Earl?"
BBE - "I'm pretty good, Jon Bon Jovi. Do we know each other?"
JBJ - "Yeah we know each other. We went to high school together. BBP High...class of '84."
BBE - "Really? I thought you grew up in New Jersey."
JBJ - "Nah! Common mistake people make. I was born there, but I was raised on Long Island where I went to school. Don't you remember me from high school?"
BBE - "Well, yeah...I remember you from high school. I remember your songs playing on the radio when I was a junior in high school. Aren't you 4 or 5 years older than me, Jon?"
JBJ - "Got left back a few times. Spent a lot of time with my music back then so I let the grades slip if you know what I mean. Anyway, I gotta finish this inspection but it was cool seeing you again. We gotta hang out sometime, OK?"
BBE - "Um, yeah...sure Jon Bon Jovi. Bye!"

For the life of me, I have no idea what that was all about.

OK...maybe it IS as scary as it sounds.

NON-JON UPDATE - For all you Battlestar Galactica geeks, you know who you are, here's a little some-some for ya. He's got my vote.

Oh lordy and you had to post that dead sexy picture of JBJ too! I had a dream once that Brad Pitt thought I had a nice ass, and then a few weeks later Justin Timberlake and I were partying and he kissed me!

i am the diva said...

I dreamed last night that I was on stage with Arlo Guthrie and his touring group. I had a great time performing and singing with them, but I didn't have a guitar strap and my pick was too thin. After the show, we went to a backyard pool party with Judy Collins and Joan Baez. You and Jon Bon Jovi should have stopped by.

Slyde said...

What Earl isnt telling everyone is that is a picture of my body with Jon's head photoshopped in.

I'm a very sexy dude..

Verdant Earl said...

Paige - There was another picture that was even sexi..., um...more disgusting. I used restraint.

Diva - Dream slut! I love it.

Lotus - I don't know if Jon would have been down with the folk music crowd. I'll ask him tonight.

Slyde - I did have to airbrush out your third nipple. That shit is just too freaky!

That is a weird dream! Weird, in the sense that it was almost something that could exist in reality. I always have either really crazy, existentential nonsense dreams, or ones that are just really mundane, like where I'm doing chores or just sitting and nothing happens.

I also have recurring dreams where I'm walking around in public, not quite naked but in a towel or something; and then I have ones where I'm trying to catch a plane to go somewhere really important, but I'm always running extremely late, because for some reason I can't get packed, I keep getting interrupted by one thing or another, they can't find my ticket at the airport, I can't find the gate in the ridiculously huge airport...and by the time I get to my plane, it's like two days later and I've missed the entire weekend. Really weird.

I had a dream EXACTLY like this...except replace Bon Jovi with Pamela Anderson...and the words 'music' with 'Playboy'.....I have that dream as often as I can.

Verdant Earl said...

Em - my dreams run the gamut from mundane to nonsensical. I have a very eclectic muse.

Lotus - are you awake during these dreams? ;)

Ville said...

I'm just truly LOL!!

Verdant Earl said...

Ville - Heya!

Verdant Earl said...


I just re-read Slyde's comment and I think he's openly admitting what a sexy dude he things JBJ is.

Um...not that there is anything wrong with that.

Tequila Mockingbird said...

i had a dream about bon jovi too, but in it, he was in a racoon suit and tried to rape me anally with his racooon tail. i'm living on a prayer that i never have that fuckign dream again.

Globus said...

globus is pleased someone else is on similarly strong medication.

an ex once likened globus to jon bon jovi, with the sad result that each time he's mentioned, globus thinks about the ex. those wimmin sure have something to answer for.

Verdant Earl said...

Tequila - Did I forget to mention the raccoon suit and the attempted anal rape?

Globus - It was 8-9 beers at a dinner party and some baskin robbins ice cream afterwards that did me in.

Artful Kisser said...

JBJ, warehouse, construction site, hard hats, pic of JBJ with shirt undone and come hither eyes...all sounds like the opening for a gay porno.

Verdant Earl said...

Artful Kisser - of course that's why I woke up with a raging, um...nevermind. ;)
