It makes me cringe. Seriously, my shoulders go way up over my head and I feel like I might barf just hearing it because I stay out of the room when the girls are watching it.
Wondering if there were movies like this that drove my mother crazy, but then that was back before VCR’s let alone DVD’s so I guess not.
So, I am trying to understand 1. How it infiltrated my house? and 2. Why my five and seven year olds are so fascinated by it.
So I asked. Right, go to the source. So I asked the five year old:
Me: Who’s your favorite person in High School Musical?
Boo: Sharpay. (Thank you IMDB for the spelling, don’t hold it against me).
Boo: She’s popular and she’s fancy.
Me: Who else is there?
Boo: Gabriella, she’s the sweet one.
Boo: Troy, he plays basketball. Then there’s Matt, he plays basketball too and he’s cool, and Ryan, he is cool and helps Sharpay.
Me: Is there anyone else?
Boo: Taylor, she’s popular and she helps Gabriella. She’s sweet too.
Me: So why do you like it so much?
Boo: It’s all cool.
Not getting much of anywhere I asked Ems, the seven year old, she just rolled her eyes at me.
APPARENTLY I AM NO LONGER COOL.
