Many weeks ago, a friend lent me High School Musical. Because I do not live in a bubble, I was aware of this movie (in fact, I’d even heard some of the soundtrack when we babysat some friends’ children). I had seen our friends Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens at the grocery store checkout lines. Even my sister had told me how awesomely awesome of a movie it was. And yet, I had not seen it.
Then my borrowed copy sat next to the DVD player for weeks. Untouched, unloved, unwatched.
On Tuesday night, Bart had some work to do on the computer that only required half his attention; we didn’t really want to watch 24 because that show requires your full attention. So, I suggested we finally watch High School Musical.
And now, I’m a total nerd. Because I love this movie. When we finished the movie last night, I went back and watched most of the song and dance scenes again. And then I watched them on YouTube. And then I watched them this morning while I was getting ready. And when I get home from work? I will probably watch them again.
Laugh if you must, but I won’t hear you. Because I will be over here humming “Breaking Free.”
