When I was a senior in high school, my mom sent me out searching for a wreath on Christmas Eve. In my last attempt at Home Depot, I found one right before they closed. I waited to check out behind a guy buying a power saw, which I thought was a little weird. I got called to the other line as he lifted his shades to sign for his purchase. Then I saw it was Jon Bon Jovi. I tried not to stare as I went to the other register. I ran out to my car like the awkward teenager that I was, and turned it on to warm it up. My stereo started blasting a Bon Jovi mix cd already sitting in my CD player (hi, I’m a Jersey girl). I scraped some frost off my window, and he got into the car next to me. He winked at me and said Merry Christmas before getting into the car. That was the best Christmas Eve ever… but I still want to know why he needed a power saw on Christmas Eve.
