A Story

As formerly requested, here is the story behind my previous post of Guns 'n Roses' "Sweet Child o Mine". You see, I was young and there was this gorgeous guy I was dating and he was a fan of the aforementioned group. I, of course, being the pop/new wave music junkie I was, had never really heard of Guns; heavy metal just wasn't my 'thing'. Unless it was Poison, or Bon Jovi, or maybe even those guys from Europe, cuz we all know it's not really about the music, it's the hunks in the band. Right, girls? Anyhoo, back to my story. I was really into this guy and he was really into me, and as we were grooving in his car one day, he looks at me with his deep green eyes and said that when he listened to that song, he thought of me. That I was his "sweet child". So, naturally I became not only a fan of that song, but of the band as well. Oh, and it didn't hurt that that sweet hunk would play that smokin guitar solo for me. What is it with girls and musicians? So, while I'm not a spring chicken anymore, I'm still his 'sweet child' and always will be.

MM HM. Mr. 24 is a romantic softie. Very sweet! Bryan and I only had one song and it was because we saw Ghost together and I was smitten by that movie. He knew it and enjoyed the buzz I got from that film. So Unchained Melody was ours for awhile. Have a great week Stace - Jennifer

A confession: I was thinking of a slightly different episode involving "Sweet Child of Mine". But Stacie did allude to it... When we were first dating, I was in a rock band and that was one of the songs we played (I did the Slash part... sans jewfro and top hat, thank you). Stacie and her friend came over to a bandmate's house to see us "rehearse". Rehearse for what, I don't know because we never got to play any real gigs. Yes, we were that good. Anyway, I remember Stacie and her friend standing there in Lee's living room, probably deafenend by the sound of us, but really paying attention to us. As if we could really play or something... I will never forget the look on Stacie's young face. She looked at me as if she was really interested in me!

Well, the episode she described came about, indirectly, as a result of that. So...

You will always be my "sweet child" regardless of the story!

Stace said...

note the "young face".... it's all wrinkled up now.

oh and I WAS really interested in you! duh!

If I'm your "sweet child", does that make you my "Sugah Daddy"?

Stopped by to say hey to you Stacie and I get to witness this love-fest. Sheesh, get a private Blog! In all seriousness, the fact that you guys are so obviously in love warms my heart. God is good! Jen
