Last night, Adam went to bed early because he wasn't feeling well. Sad? Yes, it was a little sad. However, Brooke & I also realized that it presented the perfect opportunity. "What perfect opportunity?" Well, I'm glad you asked. The perfect opportunity to fulfill our wildest dreams and watch "High School Musical" and "High School Musical 2" back-to-back.
Now, the night didn't start out with such high aspirations. We cooked chicken tortilla soup and were hanging out, flipping channels after sending Adam up to bed. Hark! What beeth on the Disney Channel? Why, it's High School Musical 2. Oh, snicker, snicker. Giggle, giggle. It's just starting- let's watch it for a moment and scoff, shall we? Then scoffing turned into realization. We needed to see High School Musical 1 to understand the going ons of the sequel. So we loaded up Powers and drove to Blockbuster to rent the original. After a scare (the last copy was hidden behind Harry Potter but Brooke found it with her detective skills) we returned home and proceeded to stay up until 1 a.m. watching the 2 movies, making sure to make mental notes of the choreography for the next wedding that we attend.
Are we too old? Perhaps. I did teach at an elementary school with 1st grade girls who completely loved H.S.M. (That's what we insiders call it). However, I think High School Musical has lessons applicable to everyone, regardless of their season in life.
1. Be yourself.
2. Geeks and jocks can peacefully coexist and even date!
3. Everyone loves a good jazz square
