News flash.

Jon Bon Jovi is a handsome man.

Shocker, I know.

My Guy and I saw Bon Jovi in concert ... us and about 10,000 screaming women in mom jeans. The show? It was excellent. I love me some Bon Jovi, and they covered a lot of material from the New Jersey album, which I owned on cassette and have since purchased on iTunes. Because I love it that much.

I will say that for a while, the time-space continuum was all sorts of messed up. Richie Sambora was wearing this silver lamé sport coat that just made his skin look orange, and I had a hard time believing it was actually 2010. But then he traded out the coat for another and all was right with the world.

Bon Jovi isn't cool and I don't care. I love them. And I love the family that sat in front of us. Hipster mom and dad brought their 11-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son to the show, and all four of them danced and sang along. They were enjoying those precious remaining moments before their daughter thinks they're total dweebs.

Is that even a word anymore? "Dweeb" was totally cool when I first discovered Bon Jovi. Just sayin'.

Bon Jovi is very delicious, though I do prefer is 'old' stuff to the newer (and especially) country sounding material. I would totally be his road bitch and make out with him.

Bon Jovi is BELOVED in all of my circles. I swear, I'm the only gal I know who hasn't seen him in concert. Doesn't mean I can't sing along LOUD to the mix tapes, though!

Bon Jovi isn't cool anymore? Where have I been? He'll be here, in OKC, in a few weeks. Looking forward to the show.
