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!

  7. 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! :)

  10. 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......

  11. I was obsessed with Grease, too! Such a good movie. Grease 2 is pretty awful, though.

    I also had similar glasses!

  12. 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.
