The ABC’s of Me
Grease is the word....
My all time favorite movie, without a doubt. I can remember sitting in the theater in Sylacauga. It was afternoon. I was sitting in the seat closest to the curtain against the wall. I left that theater wanting to be Sandy. Not the slutty, curly headed Sandy. The sweet, pure, bobby sock wearing Sandy.
I can quote the movie from beginning to the end. I can sing every song, complete with dance moves (and yes, it is as pathetic as it sounds).
When my big kids were little, I must have showed them the movie twenty times. No, I didn't realize how crude and inappropriate it was until about ten years ago. I also really thought that Fonzie slept on that pull out couch.
I know that all of the actors and actresses were in their 30's, playing high school kids. I know that it was a knock off of the Broadway show and that in itself should make me hate it. I know that Olivia Newton John has little acting skill and even fewer dance skills. Doesn't matter. Still love it.
No matter what kind of day I have had, not matter what has happened in my life, no matter what anyone has said or done to me, this movie makes me happy. Just hearing the music makes me smile. Just looking at these pictures make me a little bit giddy and longing to see the movie again.
Think what you want....In the words of Rizzo, "There are worse things I could do...."
