I kissed Jon Hamm

For those of you who know Jon Hamm, or his broadcast persona, Don Draper, you know that kissing Jon Hamm might be, well, rather fun. For those of you who don't know Jon Hamm, Don Draper or watch Mad Men...here is what we are dealing with:



And since this kiss was something I dreamed, in a very vivid dreamy state, I woke up thinking, how am I to explain to JohnnyMac that I kissed Jon Hamm? Although, with no disrespect to the sanctity of marriage or our vows, JohnnyMac is a big fan of Don Draper and might just provide a hall pass for any such kissing engagement.

The reality is, I had this unusual and vivid dream about Jon Hamm and then, like a celebutante, I developed a crush on him. Has this happened to you? Maybe not with Jon Hamm but for some of you it might have been those posters of Raquel Welch in your bedroom. Or Starsky. Or Fresh Prince. The fact is for me, this is not the first time the prelude to the crush came from a dream.

In undergrad, I dreamed I went out on a date with the Vice Chancellor of the University whom I knew well and respected a great deal. He was also brilliant and extremely attractive. But after my date dream (because I was such an innocent lamb in college my racy dreams were about a proper date) I developed a full blown adolescent style crush on him like I was trapped in an episode of Blossom. In law school, I had a hazy dream about one of our professors. Hazy dream = crush. And years ago, I had a dream about a guy we went to high school with whom I knew well. Then. But haven't seen since about 1989. It wasn't a dirty dream but we were definitely not sipping hot cocoa and talking about our feelings. Not sipping hot cocoa dream = crush. It is funny to me now that when we became friends on Facebook, I laughed to myself thinking he will never know I had a crush on him for about four years. Nor would you tell someone that because 1. you are married now. And 2. talking about crushes in real time sounds like tales of a 4th grade girl.

But since my most recent escapade took place entirely under the cover of deep REM, it was harmless. But I kissed Jon Hamm. And I liked it.

Mighty M said...

Baloney said...

Does this mean I need to start watching Mad Men?

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

Hehe! The same thing happened to me ... with Eminem. :)

Brian Miller said...

brainella said...

If I tell you who I got a dream crush on recently you'd make fun of me so I won't...but yeah. :-) Love those dreams.

For me it's Boston Celtics Paul Pierce, Rashad Rondo, and Glen Davis!

Better than kissing Charlie Sheen....

Hah! Kiss and tell.

You dream about Jon Hamm; I dream about stealing someone's journal and reading it slash going to France with my mother and having our plane almost crashing. I want your dreams.

Kristina P. said...

I made out with Mulder, once.

Dumblond said...

Oh it's dangerous to dream of Jon Hamm. Not only is he incredibly attractive and manly but he is funny! A man who makes me laugh is just instantly sexy.
I dream of Brandon Routh. He was Superman...'nuff said.

CINDER said...

Oooohhhh So incredibly jealous!!

Ed said...

I can't say I've ever developed a "crush" after a dream.

Unless you define "crush" as: A wet spot in the crotchal area of ones shorts.

;)

At least your dream life is humorous and productive. My last dream I spent running in a wooded area with my year old son from a large lion. I am really glad I have not been to a dream interpretation site to decipher what the experience actually means.

I think your husband would understand. He might have been having his own celeb-kissing dreams and isn't telling you about them. Maybe one of them was even Jon Hamm. :o

Elz said...

Oh man, I thought you were going to share some steamy undergrad story. Hmph. I remember one vivid dream I had where my husband was cheating on me. I woke up SO PISSED. Poor guy never did a thing, but it was so real (to me).

About 25 years ago: John Cusack.

K A B L O O E Y said...

Nice choice. (I'm talking to your subconscious.) Mine did that a long time ago and I ended up crushing on John Cusack.

The Random Blogette said...

I just had the most ridiculous almost-sex dream about Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl! I was all worried about keeping it from my hubs and Blair Waldorf!

Marcy said...

"because I was such an innocent lamb in college..."

Whatever.

:)

hotpants™ said...

I have celeb dreams all the time. It's probably because I'm celeb obsessed, but that's beside the point. Many of my crushes have stemmed from dreams. I cannot stand Dane Cook, but boy did we have some great sex when I was sleeping. Ha!

Kathy said...

You have very good taste in Dream men. Don Draper is absolutely not good husband material, but he's great dream date. Now, was it Jon Hamm or Don Draper in you dream?

MommaAmma said...

Blossom! That reminds me, Joey Lawrence was in my first kissy dream.

Now it's Kevin James and Hugh Grant. Not at the same time though.

Idea #527 said...

I am actually in the process about writing something similar to this! haha!

And Jon Hamm/Don Draper. . . yummy!

Maria said...

Excellent choice...and I have also had the smae experience...A little surreal, but very, very nice...

Nitmos said...

I had that famous Farrah Fawcett poster in my room as a lad. The one with her nips sticking out.

But I also had a Steve Martin one. The one in the white suit with a fish sticking out of the pocket.

Conflicted. Confused.

I haven't seen the show, but I hear he's kind of a Ladies' Man, so be careful.

(But also? I know what you're talking about.)
