Conversation the other morning…..
Hubby: Would you like to see Bon Jovi in concert in June?
Me: ( turn to look at this absolute gorgeous man)
Hubby: Did you hear me?
Me: (mouth opened, REALLY opened, dumbfounded)
Me: Is this a trick question? (I have come back to life)
Hubby: What do you mean?
Me: What do YOU mean? (wanting to make sure the love of my life was not like losing it)
Hubby: Do you want to go see Bon Jovi in June?
Me: Only if you really want too. (playing coy, batting eyelashes)
Just knock me over with a sledgehammer.
Hubby is the type that just gets right to the point. I know that he probably scratches his head a lot when it comes to following my train of thought. However, I do not have that problem with him. This is how I know that Hubby really loves me. I LOVE Bon Jovi. No, like REALLY LOVE Bon Jovi. Hubby always makes fun of me for this high school and college crush. This was/is my band. I can belt out all of their songs. I can remember their hairstyles during this time. I knew I had made it in life when I started driving around in my Volvo listening to Bon Jovi at an elevated volume (on a 5 out of 10). You are thinking, gee she does not have very high standards…. Hey you have to start somewhere!
During college, when I did not want to eat in the dining hall food (still debating if that was what it actually was…), I would go to the student union and order a sandwich and go listen to the MTV top 10. (Yes, that was when MTV played music.) That was a highlight of my day!!!
Hubby really loves me because he wants to take me to go see MY band. Oh, I cannot wait!!!!
This conversation did get me thinking about my top 10 Bon Jovi songs. I have thought about this a lot. So here we go… (can you hear the drum roll???)
10. It’s My Life (only because it is ‘newer)
9. Wanted: Dead or Alive
8. Bad Medicine
7. Born To Be My Baby
6. Never Say Goodbye
5. I’ll Be There For You
4. You Give Love a Bad Name
3. Bed of Roses
2. Shot Through The Heart
and my #1 favorite song is…..
Living on a Prayer
I can picture myself now at the concert…….. Oh, I REALLY love my Hubby!!!
