Celebrities Who Have Appeared In My Dreams: Rocco DiSpirito

I was at a wedding reception and it was very crowded. Lots of people and kids milling around. I remember being mildly frustrated and sitting down at a long table with my friends. I was looking around the room when Rocco came up to the table and plopped down in the chair across from me.

I was momentarily surprised to see him. He was wearing a brown suit and a black tie. He looked a little bit frazzled; his hair was a mess and he seemed to be a bit sweaty. I was just thinking about how cute he is when he pulled a small box out of his inside coat pocket. He handed the box to me and asked, "Will you marry me?"

I was about to say, "Well, gee, Rocco, you know I'm already married," but before the words could form in my mouth, I had opened the light blue Tiffany's box to see a small, brown enameld grandfather clock with diamonds around the face.

I looked at him and said, "You know, this is the most hideous thing I've ever received. What were you thinking?" I was outraged that he thought I'd like this and marry him because of it. Not to even mention the fact that I was already married.

He may be cute, but he sure is clueless...


  1. Now if he had gotten you a mantle clock like I did, who knows how this dream might have turned out...


  2. with a name like "rocco" I thought he was the character in a bodice ripper-- you know, naked against the sun an' all that.

    the important question, though, is didja' keep th' clock anyway? You could always put it on eBay...

  3. Never trust a chef who sweats outside the kitchen.

  4. Doc: No Doubt!

    Cap'n: Alas no bodice ripping, nor did I keep it; it was made of fairy dust, apparently.

    Dale: Absolutely!

    Vikki: True dat.

  5. Flannery, have you been giving your marriage the time it takes to keep it fresh (in a Commodors way, not a douchy one)?

    I have had dreams with Tim Robbins a few times. Rrarr.
