because every friday should end like this…

a short friday story…

[a five year old me.]

when i was around the age of five i saw the movie grease for the first time.
i was smitten.

i remember the day my mom bought it for me very vividly. i remember her picking me up from kindergarten & me asking her if she found it– she said no. my heart sank. she said she was joking. & i was elated. i watched it at least seven times that week.

i Loved it. L-o-v-e-d it…
i watched it none stop, dancing & singing along while clomping around in my mom’s super cute wedding shoes that looked just like sandy’s. i adored sandy. i remember the day i sat at the kitchen table & counted the penny’s and quarters in my piggy bank & being short five dollars of the eighteen i needed to buy the soundtrack. my dad kindly gave me the five i needed.

i would stand on our loft blaring it dancing around all day with my cousins jenny & julie. i attempted to get my boy cousins jon & geoff to watch grease & i think they got to the prom scene. then i was convinced riding bikes was cooler.

grease will forever have a special place in my heart.

wouldn’t you love to end your friday like this? i think we should!

  1. oh me too!!! i used to make up routines to all of the songs – my best friend would come over every day after school and we'd immediately put on the grease soundtrack… weird, us having even MORE in common šŸ™‚


  2. At the age of five? Aww, you must have learnt so many things faster than the rest of us when it comes to the matters of the heart.
    Btw, I haven't watched Grease. Nope. You read right. Something tells me I should right away! šŸ™‚


  3. i had/have a similar obsession with Grease. I never get tired of watching it! When I was a little kid, I thought that the carnival scene at the end happened on the last day of high school everywhere. imagine my surprise come graduation day……


  4. aah I remember the first time I watched Grease too! I was in 4th grade and my cousin Holly was babysitting my brother and I. From then on for the next two years it was Grease everything! I got the soundtrack and memorized all the words… yeah, so nerdy of me.
