I was sitting on the couch watching Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam with Youngest and it reminded me of the hilarious conversation we had the last time we watched a musical on TV.
The whole family was together watching HS Musical when Eldest came up with a brilliant statement: Have you noticed, that in a musical, someone is happy and then he’s got to sing about it. Or someone is angry and she bursts into song. Or people are sad, and they run off to sing a sad song. What if we did that in real life?
Imagine this. You’re heading to work in your car and there’s an accident slowing things down. Oh, my gosh! What ever are you going to do? Why, of course, you get out of your car and break into a spontaneous song about it. Soon, other people get out of their cars and join in. In fact, at this point everyone breaks out in a synchronized dance. Then, as the song ends, everyone returns to their cars to find the accident has cleared, and acts as though the song and dance never happened.
Silly, I know. But now, every time we notice a musical on TV, my family jokes around: Hey, Mom? I can’t go to the mall? I’m so mad I think I’ll run off and sing about it! Dad! I’m so excited that you can take me to Polar Ice. Let’s sing about it as we put on our ice skates !
If REAL LIFE were a musical, what daily events would you like to sing and dance about?
