Ok, I have to preface this story with the disclaimer that I have not seen any of the High School Musical movies, nor have my children, nor do I plan on them seeing it. (I keep hearing of stories of little girls who want to watch it 5 times a day, and I'm just not prepared for that.....)
**update, M HAS seen this movie, at her cousins. Who knew.
SO, my brother Legrand calls me today and reminds me of how on our summer trip to Oregon he rode with my sister Sharon and her kids, and subsequently was "trapped" into watching High School musical. He did say he ended up liking it, and willingly put on the headphones to watch it the 3 times on the way up, and 3 times on the way back.
Well last night Legrand is at some club/party downtown and sees this kid and says "Hey, has anyone ever told you that you look like that kid from High School Musical?" So the kid turns around and says "I am that kid from High School Musical. How old are you?" Legrand says, "I'm 31." And this is the best: the kid says "So then what are you doing watching High School Musical?" Then I'm sure Legrand gave some fumbled response as to why he knew so much about a movie popular with 4 - 10 year olds. And the kid says "Well, you're the only here who 'recognized' me."
I love it when Legrand gets busted for participating in the same demographic as young girls who watch High School Musical. We got a really good laugh out of it.
