When I was about 16, my buddies and I were sitting around in the street playing an exciting game of truth or dare. My friend had just finished eating an ant off the ground and I was up next. My buddy Jeff asked me “Truth or Dare?” After thinking about it for a second, I decided to take a chance and do a dare.
Thousands of ideas raced through my friend’s mind until finally, he had the ultimate idea. He remembered that John Bon Jovi lived near by. This was when he said: “I dare you to ding dong ditch Bon Jovi’s house.”
Famous Rock Star Jon Bon Jovi
I thought long and hard about if I was going to do it or not. Being extremely stupid back then, I accepted the dare. We had to walk about Two miles to his house. When we finally arrived, my buddy gave me a push and said: “Go for it.”I snuck behind a bush and waited for the perfect time. After waiting about a minute and a half, I sprung up to my feet and started charging towards the door. My heart was racing (as it does every time I am about to ding dong ditch as I was running to the door.
Finally I reached the door. I stood there and thought about it for one more second. I told myself “No turning back now” and I rang the bell.
The second that my fingers pressed the button, my legs took me faster than ever back towards the street. I only got halfway across the yard before the door opens and I heard a scream. It turns out that it was Bon Jovi telling me to come to him.
I stopped running and actually started walking back. By that time my friends were already halfway down the street. As I reached the door I was scared to death because I had no idea what was going to happen to me??? After I stepped onto his front step, he started talking to me.
It turned out that he wasn’t mad at all. He was actually really cool and friendly. We kept talking and I told him the story about how we were playing truth or dare. He found it really funny.
It was kind of weird how he called some woman who was also in the house over so I could repeat the story. She also found it really funny and wasn’t mad at all. I was extremely surprised that no harm was done. We continued to talk for a minute.
Right before I was about to walk away, I got the nerve to ask for his autograph. I thought for sure he would say no and tell me to go away. To my surprise, his answer was a yes. He walked inside to get a pen and paper.While he went inside, the woman invited me to come in. I politely said: “NO thanks.” As I was standing there, I noticed how cool his house was. I found it to be very awesome. Finally, he came back with a signed paper.
I said thank you. He then said: “See ya!!!” and shut the door. I then ran to the street and caught up with my friends. I told them what happened and showed them the autograph. They were so jealous and mad at me. I don’t know why they were so mad.
That was then a great story to tell everyone I saw for the next few weeks.
I ended up wining that game of truth or dare!
