Have you ever been watching a movie with your kids and thought, “Wow, I never realized this movie was so…bad!” Ray is a huge movie buff, and we are all about the oldies, but goodies. Grease is definitely on that list. Emaleigh is now a huge fan… So huge that she picked that movie twice on our 16 hour drive. Twenty movies to pick from, and she chooses it twice. Which is no big deal to me because I could sing “Summer Nights’” and “We Go Together” all…day…long.
Anyway, I am quite surprised that Emaleigh hasn’t questioned some of the lyrics, but she is too busy just trying to learn them so she can sing along with me! Bubba is the one who had some questions tonight. His first one was, “Mommy, can I be a T-Bird when I get to high school?” In Bubba’s head he’s totally Danny Zuko, but I think he’s more of a Sunny or Doody. Anyway, I told him that they didn’t really have things like that anymore and he informed me, quite assuringly, that he was going to “just have to invent them again!” So cute. Seriously…my little buddy is always coming up with some great things to accomplish when he gets older. Top of his list right now is making sure that the T-Birds and Pink Ladies rise again.
But, this question was pretty early on in the movie. I was singing along to “Beauty School Dropouot” (in my head of course because we’re staying with family for the week…didn’t want to weird anyone out-hehe) and towards the end of the song Bubba so slyly I walks style and says, “Mommy, what’s a hooker?” Thanks alot Frankie Avalon…Now I can’t sing in my head anymore. I have to sing annoyingly over the music so that my kids will never know the right words. “But no customer would go to you unless she was a LOOKER!” Phew. That was close.
